Grand Palace & Wat Phra Keo - 1 Day


The Grand Palace and the adjusted Wat Phra Keo are the “must see”- sights of Bangkok. The Grand Palace served as the official royal residence until the late 40’s and used today for official ceremonies.  The Temple of the Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Keo), is home to most revered Buddha-image in the kingdom and regarded as the most important of all Thai- temples and is not to be missed by any visitor of the capitol.

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.
