Bangkok Grand Palace

The impressive Grand Palace is rightly the most famous and visited landmark in Bangkok. It’s a must-see sight that no visit to the Thai capital would be complete without. Constructed 1782 for 150 years it was the home of the Thai Monarch and his royal court and is still today considered the spiritual heart of the Kingdom.

The palace complex comprises impressive buildings such as Wat Phra Kaew (Temple of the Emerald Buddha), which contains the petite but renowned and greatly revered Emerald Buddha that dates to the 14th century. The Emarald Buddha is carved from a single block of jade and shows the Buddha in a meditative position. The Central Court contains the regal residence and halls used for conducting state business, while the Inner Court is where the Kings daughters and consorts stayed, this area is still closed to the public.

A strict dress code is applicable for entering the palace, as it is one of Thailand’s most sacred sites. Gents must wear long trousers and shirts with sleeves (no tank tops/vests). If  wearing sandals or flip-flops you must wear socks, bare feet are not allowed.

Ladies must be similarly modestly dressed. No see-through clothes or bare shoulders, etc. If you arrive at the front gate improperly dressed, there is a booth near the entrance that can provide clothes to cover up properly, however a deposit is required.
