Ask anyone who has been to Bangkok what their 'must see' list of the city entails, and without fail they'll include The Grand Palace. This half-day sightseeing tour in Bangkok can be taken in the morning or afternoon and will allow you the opportunity to explore the complex, accompanied by a local guide. The Grand Palace Complex is home to a number of attractions including Wat Phra Kaew (Temple of the Emerald Buddha).


Highlights

  • Instant Confirmation
  • Great overview and orientation of the city
  • Choice of morning or afternoon departure
  • Led by a local guide
  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included

Built in traditional Thai architecture mixed with European designs, The Grand Palace complex, once the official home for the Kings of Siam, is unquestionably one of the Thailand's major tourist highlights. The King still uses the Grand Palace for certain ceremonial occasions and the regal flavor within its enormous royal grounds is still evident. During the tour you will visit the Royal Funeral Hall and the Royal Coronation Hall.

The main centerpiece of the complex however is the 45 centimeter Emerald Buddha. Carved from just one piece of Jade it is the holiest and most revered religious object in Thailand. The Emerald Buddha is housed within Wat Phra Kaew, which is a very ornately decorated building whose roof tiles reach up into the sky.

Amazing...no one should miss it

Reviewed by: suenades, March 2014

Tour was well organised and our guide, Hai was friendly and informative. We were collected on time from the hotel and the transport to and from was clean, safe and refreshingly cool. The tour content was detailed without dragging on too long, which was ideal as our group had ages ranging from 20-50+ years. This tour is a must-see for first time visitors to Bangkok as it gives a lot of cultural background. Of course we had to suffer the obligatory visit to a gemstone wholesaler on the return, but you get used to that in Bangkok as every tour does it.
