On our first day in Thailand, we decided to visit the Grand Palace immediately after checking-in and having lunch at the Pathumwan Princess Hotel. We got to the place at 1PM --- the place was not only scorching hot, it was way too packed!
Grand Palace's Fashion Police
if you're wearing any prohibited outfit, they'll point you to the right direction (see below)
The Borrow Section
Men and women line up to get their pants and sarongs!
You can see how much tourists the Fashion Police have reprimanded :)
Rental Fee: 200B per clothing article
The Prohibited Stuff
and no smoking inside the Grand Palace!
it is also punishable by law if you wear shoes/sandals inside a temple that has a buddha
Entrance Fee to The Grand Palace: 400B/head

Some of the photos during sight-seeing :)
Ornate Pillars, Ornate buildings!
that pretty much sums up the place :)
blue arrow shows the best way to get a good portrait
against the majestic temples
Attention To Detail
everything, from the roof to floor, is absolutely detailed
don't forget to take a photo against these artistic creations
the temple windows reminded me of one of my fave
arcade games, the Whac-A-Mole
I left the place in awe of these people's hard work and love for art --- while calculating 400B times approx 1,000++ adults touring the place. Sure is a lot of money!
I will discuss how to get to The Grand Palace in my next post!
