Day 1

Home of the Kings of Siam of the Chakri Dynasty, originally built by King Rama I, it served as the royal residence until 1946. Today the palace is still used on certain occasions for visiting royalty or special guests of the Kingdom.

Adjoining the Grand Palace you will find the Temple of the Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Keo), this is probably the best known of the royal temples. It is regarded as the most important temple in all Thailand and it is the venue of many of the numerous religious ceremonies in which the King participates, especially at the beginning of each of the three seasons when His Majesty personally changes the elaborate robes of the Buddha image, carved out of a single piece of emerald-green jasper.

We then continue to Vimanmek Palace, home to King Rama V in the early 1900s, is located behind Bangkok’s National Assembly, and it is the world’s largest building made entirely of teak. The three-storey palace has 81 rooms, halls and anterooms, excluding terraces and verandahs. Interestingly enough this palace was actually constructed on Srichang Island in the Gulf of Siam, but in 1901 King Chulalongkorn had it moved to its present site
