What to Expect
After a morning or afternoon pickup from centrally located hotels in Bangkok, transfer to the Grand Palace for your guided tour. Your private guide leads you through the stunning complex, which contains a number of elegant buildings throughout the expansive grounds. Built in 1782, the complex blends traditional Thai architecture with European influences among the gold-plated spires and statues. Visit the Royal Coronation Hall, the Royal Funeral Hall, and other locations, including some that are still used by the royal family for important occasions. Continue to Wat Phra Kaew to view the Emerald Buddha, and listen as your guide shares facts about the history and making of this sacred Buddhist statue. Note the roof tiles and intricate designs that decorate this famous temple. Your tour ends at the Gems Gallery, before a shuttle return to selected hotels. Please note: Visitors are requested to dress modestly at the Grand Palace.
