The sheer size of the palace complex is impressive. You will need half a day to see it properly. On some days they close certain buildings due to the visits from the royal family but they tell you up front if this is to happen, like it was the case with me. To enter you need to wear respectable clother (long trousers for men and long skirt and long sleeve top for women, trousers are not allowed for women). If you don't have it, they will rent the clothes to you. You need to leave a refundable deposit but those clothes are so damn uncomfortable and you will be hot in it. The entry tickets are a bit expensive (if you compare it to other things in Thailand), about $14 each. You are only allowed to enter a few temples and all other buildings are off limits. You can only walk around and look from outside. The place is still worth seeing as you do not see things like that every day. Photographing isn't allowed inside the emerald budhha temple as people are doing their rituals and we tourists just walk around and look silly with our cameras :)
