The Royal Grand Palace, with its collection of pavilions and golden spires can only be described as an
oriental masterpiece. Inside the Royal Chapel there is the Emerald Buddha, which has been carved from a solid
piece of jade. The palace is a true architectural masterpiece, consisting of several buildings from the outside and
a magical inside, which was used as a royal residence from the 18th century to the mid-20th century. It is
without any doubt a national reference and possibly the most visited royal monument of Thailand, which
shouldn’t be missed. To round off the tour, we call in at a local lapidary factory and showroom where you will be
able to get locally made jewelry, handicrafts and silk at competitive prices.
Note: Parts of the Royal Grand Palace and/or Wat Phra Kaew can be closed during special royal or Buddhist
ceremonies and during visits of foreign heads of state.
