The dazzling, spectacular Grand Palace is the most famous landmark in Bangkok. Any list of things to do in Bangkok would be incomplete if it doesn't feature a visit to this elegant royal abode. When you stay at our resorts in Thailand, a visit to the Grand Palace is the prefect start to your vacation before your dive into the glitz and glamour of Bangkok. It was built in 1782 and for 150 years served as the home of the Royal family and the seat of the government.
Upon entering the complex that holds the Grand Palace, you will come across important landmarks such as Wat Phra Kaew or the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. One of Thailand's most important national treasures, the nearly 650-year old Emerald Buddha is housed in its sanctum.
The Grand Palace of Bangkok is a grand old dame that continues to leave visitors speechless with its majestic architecture and intricately detailed interiors. It is perhaps the finest expression of traditional Thai craftsmanship and bears testament to the creativity of the Thai people. It is also where you can find the state department, defence ministry and even the Royal mint. The Grand Palace is the gilded beating heart of Thailand and its storied culture.
Please note, that if you wish to visit the Grand Palace and its many monuments, both men and women need to be modestly dressed. That means arms, legs and feet covered. So be sure to avoid shorts, sleeveless clothing and flip flops and carry some socks if you're wearing sandals. With Club Mahindra, you can witness many such magnificent experiences across 100+ resorts in India and abroad!
