Next Day, we had limited time and lots to explore in Bangkok. So we started with Grand Palace and Temple of Emerald Buddha.. 500 Baht per head for entry.
With more than two lakh square meters to cover, the Grand Palace stood tall. Home to the revered Emerald Buddha, you also showed me how the late King Bhumibol was loved and adored by your people. Thousands dressed in black were paying homage to him, even after four months of his demise.
Our first stop was The Grand Palace and our research said that to enter you should cover your knees and shoulders (Do remember this if you plan to visit the same place). The Grand Palace is a complex of buildings at the heart of Bangkok. The palace has been the official residence of the Kings of Siam (and later Thailand) since 1782. The king, his court and his royal government were based on the grounds of the palace until 1925. King Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama IX), resided at Chitralada Royal Villa in the Dusit Palace, but the Grand Palace is still used for official events. Several royal ceremonies and state functions are held within the walls of the palace every year. The palace is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Thailand and how could we miss this spot. The magnificient and majestic place offers the perfect backdrop for photographs too! The intricate architecture with different statues looked great.
That was my Day 1 -Day 2: Walked to The Grand Palace with a fellow traveler.
