Grand Palace and Wat Pho

We arrive in Bangkok about 2pm and fly out to HCMC at 4pm the next day and want to see The Grand Palace and Wat Pho the morning we fly out.

Would we have time to do this and be able to leave our hotel around 1pm? Our hotel is about a 15 minute walk from the Palace.

Also what time does the Palace open and would it be better to do the Palace first or Wat Pho?

Depends on how in depth you want to 'see' the Grand Palace. First time I was there I took 6 hours walking round and looking (but I am very much a historic buildings etc buff).

Hi GeeBee,

The Palace opens at 08.30:


You will need some time to get around and enjoy the beautiful buidings/grounds. Personally, I would stick to the Palace only.
