Combining a visit to the illustrious Grand Palace, home to Thailand’s Royal Families throughout past generations, and one of its most magnificent temples, this half-day tour is the perfect introduction to Bangkok. Explore the Royal Pantheon, Coronation Throne Hall and Royal Funeral Hall of the Grand Palace, then witness the famed Emerald Buddha of Wat Phra Kaew. Pay your respects at the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, Wat Pho, and be awed by the world’s largest golden seated Buddha statue at Wat Traimit.
While the Royal Family doesn’t reside at the Grand Palace today, it has long been the address of Thailand’s kings and queens throughout history. Its opulent structures illustrate a unique blending of both traditional Thai and European architectural styles, making it one of Bangkok’s most visited tourist sights today. Located within the grounds of the Grand Palace is Wat Phra Kaew, considered the most important Buddhist temple in Thailand and home to the highly revered Emerald Buddha.
