Bangkok can be described as one of the most sought after destinations in the world. Luring all types of personalities and characters from business tycoons, humble backpackers and celebrities, Bangkok is undeniably a great place to spend a holiday. A city that is a blend of contrasts from historic temples to upmarket boutiques, there is much to see and do.
An attraction that just about every visitor must see is the Grand Palace. A complex of buildings makes up this iconic attraction of Bangkok, which was used as the official residence of the king from the 18th century. The Grand Palace was originally built in 1782 by King Rama I and during the course of time housed different occupants; several renovations and extensions took place.
A tribute to the artistry and craftsmanship of the local people, the Grand Palace is adorned from top to bottom with intricate designs and motifs. As the home of royalty, visitors can expect to see lush gardens, beautiful courtyards, magnificent temples and residences.
The Temple of the Emerald Buddha can also be found in the Grand Palace, where a statue of Lord Buddha made from a single piece of jade can be seen. The Dusit Hall is possibly the grandest and most beautiful pavilion of the Grand Palace. Other highlights of the palace include the Amarinda Hall, Boromabiman Hall, Hall of Justice and the original residence of King Rama I.
Located on Na Phra Lan Road, visitors should take care to dress modestly when entering the compound. An inspiring and mesmerising look into the rich and glorified history of Bangkok, the Royal Palace remains close and dear to the hearts of its people.
