While planning the Bangkok portion of our honeymoon, we knew we wanted to visit the Grand Palace Bangkok. Luckily our hotel concierge showed us the best way to get there (via public transportation) and gave us tips on what water taxi to take and where to get off.
Rather than being a single structure, the Grand Palace is made up of numerous buildings, halls, pavilions set around open lawns, gardens and courtyards. It has been the official residence of the Kings of Siam (Thailand) since 1782. That is a long ass time.
If you find yourself in Bangkok, visit the Grand Palace. Do it…
Visit the Grand Palace Bangkok
I couldn’t have been more excited to walk through the Grand Palace gates.
I have shorts on because it was hot and humid and was required to cover up my bare legs. Modesty is a necessity at the Grand Palace Bangkok.
These pictures hardly do it justice.
My handsome husband!
I think part of my soul is southeast Asian.
Every time I talk about my honeymoon with friends and family, they always refer to it as a “once in a lifetime” trip. I beg to differ. I will absolutely make it a priority in my life to visit not only Thailand but the Grand Palace Bangkok again.
