The Grand Palace in Bangkok is the official residence of the King of Thailand and is used for state functions and ceremonies. Construction began in 1782 and is still going on. Currently there is a major renovation in progress but doesn’t get in the way of enjoying this wonder of ancient architecture. The Grand Palace borders Wat Phra Kaew and Wat Pho along the river. It is a must see when visiting Bangkok.
I was wearing shorts that day and shorts are not allowed on the palace grounds. You have to rent pants.
