Transit Bangkok
Grand Palace [Pier N8]

Construction of this stunning Bangkok landmark began in 1782 when King Rama I decided to move his capital across the river from Thonburi. Based on the same plan as his previous palace, it then served as the residence if the first kings of the current Chakri Dynasty and is now divided into three main quarters. The highlights include the Chakri Mahaprasat Hall, nicknamed the Westerner with the Thai hat due to its combination of Western-style architecture and traditional Thai-style roof; the Dusit Mahaprasat Hall, which is said to be a model of Thai Royal architecture thanks to its breathtakingly beautiful interior design; and Wat Phra Kaeo

To get there: Turn right, go straight for 300 meters and turn left on to Nah Phra Lan Road. The Palace and the temple entrance are on your right. No sleeveless shirt, shorts, miniskirts or flip-flops, though clothes are available for rent. Tickets for the Palace and the Temple are 350 Baht (foreigners). Open daily 8.30am-3.30pm but the palace hall is only open on weekdays. Free tours in English are available at 10am, 10:30am, 1:30pm and 2:00pm.
