No visit to Thailand is complete unless you’ve visited the Grand Palace in Bangkok. This glorious series of buildings can be found in the heart of the city and they are simply magnificent. The official residence of the Kings of Siam and then Thailand since 1782, the Grand Palace is stunning in its grandeur.
It is lit up during the nights, making it even more enchanting. On its grounds sits the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, one of the most important Buddhist temples in Thailand. If you love soaking up history and marvelling at the detailing in such monuments, then this is definitely one of the recommended things to do in Thailand.
