The Grand Palace (Thailand)

By Jalene B.D.S.

 

The Grand Palace is a complex structure at the Capital city of Thailand. Aside from being the official residence of the Kings of Thailand, it also houses some temples.

Entrance ticket costs 500 baht per pax

 

NOTE: Keep your ticket at Grand Palace. You can also use it for another tourist attraction which is Vimanmek Palace. When we got there, Vimanmek is closed for public viewing but they swap it for an entrance to Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall. Another great structure to behold!

 

HOW TO GET THERE:

BTS – From Siam Station, drop off at Saphan Taksin station. Fare costs 34 baht per pax.

Then, from Sathorn Pier/Oriental Pier, ride the Chao Phraya river boat express and drop off at Tha Chang Pier. Fare costs 14 baht per pax.

Walk across the street and you’ll see the white walls. Follow the crowds to the entrance.
