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.

A beautiful place to visit. It'll take about an hour to go through everything. Make sure to wear a shirt that covers your shoulders and don't wear shorts!

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.

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.

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.

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.
