Great Palace

Thai name : พระบรมมหาราชวัง

GPS : 13.74993175,100.49200773 (See on the map)


Be careful of tuk-tuk drivers telling you the Grand Palace is closed and try to take you visit other places. Most of the time they are lying and trying to lure you into jewlerry shops where they get commissions and gems are often fake. This one of Bangkok's classical scams.

The Grand Palais (or Royal Palace) is fast enough to visit because you can not enter to see the inside as it is one of the royal residence still in use. The King of Thailand does not live there but the palace is at its disposal. We meet sometimes a squad of guards in white outfits that seem more there for the parade as a real desire to secure the place.
