This is a really crowded attraction, but well worth elbowing through the crowds because everything is simply stunning. Let your eyes soak in the rich colors and intricate architectural details that make up the temples and palaces. It is architectural eye candy.

The Grand Palace is most historical place to visit in Thailand. It reminds me a lot of my childhood growing up in Rangoon, Burma surrounded by lots of temples and pagodas.Recommended for:

Touring the Grand Palace is an absolute necessity, when you visit Bangkok. It's a beautiful site and you can easily spend half a day touring all the buildings and monuments. To enter into the main palace you need to be wearing pants, they will not accept anyone wearing shorts. Female visitors should have their shoulders covered (no tank tops). Shoes, sneakers, and sandals are all acceptable form of footwear. Be prepared to take a lot of pictures, the Grand Palace is a beautiful site, with "kodak movements" scattered all over the place.Recommended for:

This is an incredible place, everywhere you turn there is another fabulous sculpture/building. You should not miss this place if you are in Bangkok. Remember to dress with long pants & cover the shoulders. You will also need to take off your shoes when requested (wear good socks).Recommended for:

best place in Bangkok for sure! Take half a day to visit it. The palace has been the official residence of the Kings of Siam until 1925: now they lives in Chitralada Royal Villa. To get in, it is important to cover legs and shoulders.Recommended for:

If you have time for only one historical sight in Bangkok, this should be it. The Palace is actually a collection of sights which includes Wat Phra Kaew (the temple of the Emerald Buddha). The complex is absolutely stunning and is a great place to take photographs (at least on the outside).
Be forewarned that taxi and tuk tuk drivers will often say that the palace is closed in hopes that you will let them take you on a tour of the city. Don't listen to them. If you have any question at all, ask your hotel concierge before you leave to see it.Recommended for:

Gorgeous and ornate, but horrifically crowded, the Grand Palace and the Chapel of the Emerald Buddha are a must-visit in the environs of Bangkok, and the city's pre-eminent tourist sight. It's the most splendidly decorated of Bangkok's temples, but the crowds and high price of admission can dampen the experience. Closed-toed shoes for men are required.Recommended for:

My favorite of the 3 temples in BKK, the intricate designs and jewels on the structures are amazing. So much details, time, and work put into it. There is a lot to see in that Palace grounds alone. It's custom that you have long pants and shirts that cover the shoulder, or they'll provide you with a sarong wrap (for men and women).Recommended for:

The Grand Palace is an impressive series of temples and buildings. It is also the official residence of the King of Thailand. If a remake of "The King and I" was ever filmed again, I would urge the producer to shoot the movie here. However, ladies be forewarned - you must dress modestly when entering the premises. I wore cargo capri pants, but the guards said I had to wear a sarong skirt to completely conceal my legs. Thus, I had to wear two layers of clothes outside in hot and humid weather. It was unpleasant to say the least, so please dress appropriately and cover your legs!Recommended for:
