Bling Bling at Grand Palace

On December 11, 2013 by Novita Karana

You’re not go to Thailand if you’re not visit Grand Palace.

I think you should visit Grand Palace once in your life. 500 bath entry fee (November 2013) is worth when you see the fantastic details of it. Some Wat Wat and temple have dresscode for visitors. The dress code is you should

dress proper. Man: no tanktop, no short pant, and no sandals. Woman: must have sleeve blouses, no short pants, no mini skirt, no sandals. You better put the Wat Wat, palaces, mansions, museum in one day.

The palace has been the official residence of the Kings of Siam (and later Thailand) since 1782. The ex Kings residence is open everyday, and there’s only one gate to enter the palace. Some says there’re scammers that say Grand Palace is closed and they will accompany you to jewels shop. Don’t trust them, just walk until you find the gate. We went to Grand Palace by taxi from our hostel. The taxi meter started at 35 bath and end up at 78 bath. Taxi stop is 35 steps far from the Grand Palace gate, taxi can’t stop in front of the gate, so you must walking 35 steps to reach the main gate. :)

You can buy postcards, there’s postcard shop with beautiful view of Thailand in right side of entrance. GP3
Buy the ticket, get free map at the entrance, enter the palace, and you will be amaze of all the details and colours.
Don’t forget to keep your ticket, because the Grand Palace ticket includes free ticket to Vimanmek Mansion (it costs 100 bath).

We arrived to the palace on 11AM (wake up in the morning is very hard for us), the weather was VERY HOT, and it was SUPER CROWDED of tourists. After looking around, we decided:
1) just take some pictures as fast as it can.
2) exit palace and go to next place.
We’re too lazy to enter the palaces, because we must take off our shoes, and put it on the rack. We just walking around and see the beauty of the colours.

Phra Thinang Chakri Maha Prasat
The Phra Thinang Chakri Maha Prasat is a blend of Thai traditional architecture and a combination of 19th-century European styles. These buildings are composed of nine major and minor halls, structured in a similar scheme to the Maha Monthien Halls from north to south, however the two building groups contrasts greatly in styles.

Tips for visiting Grand Palace:
1) Come early
2) Bring mineral water, it’s hard to find mineral water inside.
3) Dress properly (no short, no short skirt, wear shirt with short sleeve), so you don’t need to buy or rent clothes
4) Bring hat
5) Bring plastic bag to put your shoes, and then you can carry or put it on your bag. If you want to enter the temple, you must put your shoes outside.
