  • We actually visited November 2019. It was a beautiful sunny day and the palace was spectacular. Definitely a must do and you should organise a tour and you need a long skirt or pants

  • A must visit place in Bangkok full of history, ornate architecture, and art. The stunning detail found throughout the complex is mind boggling. Take your time and meander your way through the property-you won’t be disappointed. Every corner provides rich new attractions for the eye. Foreigners take note - you cannot wear shorts, you will not be allowed to enter. There are vendors around the entrance that will see you a pair so don’t distress, just have 200 baht handy (per pair).
  • This is easily one of the most magnificent places we have ever visited. Everything was built with so much detail and thoughtfulness. It is incredible how the closer you got to a building or structure, the more details it had. If you are visiting Bangkok, you absolutely need to dedicate a whole day just for this. It is that beautiful.
