    No visit to Bangkok is complete without a trip to the dazzling Grand Palace, the city’s most famous landmark. Built in 1782, the Grand Palace of Bangkok is a stunning testament to the brilliant architectural and decorative skills of the Thai people.served as the official residence of the king of Thailand from the 18th century to the early 20th century. Today, it is used only for ceremonial purposes.

    The complex consists of over 100 brightly colored buildings, golden spires and glittering mosaics. Marvel at golden domes, inspirational spires, mosaics of glass or porcelain, exotic wall murals, richly carved and gilded roof supports, doors and windows adorned with mother-of-pearl inlay or gold and black lacquer work, multi-hued tiled roofs and enormous bronze or brightly colored statues. See Dusit Hall which used to serve as the Funeral Hall of the Grand Palace.

    You will also be able to visit Thailand’s most sacred shrine – Wat Phra Kaew (Temple of the Emerald Buddha) – Thailand’s holiest shrine which contains the small and much revered Emerald Buddha. The jade Buddha (between 60 and 75 cm statue) dates back to the 14th century and is located high above the heads of the worshipers and tourists. The murals that adorn the walls of the Temple depict scenes from the Thai version of the Hindu epic Ramayana.
