Explore the Royal Grand Palace, Bangkok’s main tourist attraction
Visit Thailand’s holiest religious statue carved from jade at the Wat Phra Kaew
The Royal Grand Palace, with its collection of pavilions and golden spires can only be described as an oriental masterpiece. Inside the Royal Chapel there is the Emerald Buddha, which has been carved from a solid piece of jade. The palace is a true architectural masterpiece, consisting of several buildings from the outside and a magical inside, which was used as a Royal residence from the 18thcentury to the mis-20 century. It is without any doubt a national reference and possibly the most visited royal monument of Thailand, which shouldn’t be missed. To round odd the tour, we call in at a local lapidary factory and showroom where you will be able to get locally made jewelry, handicrafts and silk at competitive prices.
