A busy place with lots of buildings to see. Stunning architecture and sites, and a unique venue.
Lots of 'con men' outside the palace trying to tell you that the Palace is closed and to go with them for a tour, or offering to sell you tickets. Avoid them and make sure to get your tickets from the official entrance. We booked a guide for the 2 of us at the main entrance. She was brilliant, and took us to the good photo points as well as getting us around quickly and to the front of the queues. There are strict dress restrictions for ladies which are enforced, so make sure shoulders are covered with a shirt ( scarfs /pashminas are not acceptable) They do though 'loan ' shirts to ladies who have come incorrectly dressed
We combined with visits to the Reclining Buddha, the Main Temple and a river cruise , all of which are within the same area of the city. In total we did it all in about 5 , which was ideal for us. I'd strongly recommend a guide.
