The Grand Palace reviews
Must visit in Bangkok, absolutely stunning. Arrive early to try and miss the crowds/heat and avoid the scammers near the front gates. Well worth the 500 baht fee (which can be paid by card).

*Disclosure: Self-initiated review. No benefits were obtained in exchange for this unbiased review.* October 2022 I went to the Grand Palace on a weekend, and paid 1000 baht for an English-speaking guide who was one of several independent(?) guides offering their services at the main entrance. Dress code was unnecessarily strict. My partner had to raise her arms above her head to prove that her top will not lift and reveal her belly. Even after entering, I witnessed guards approaching a modestly dressed tourist and asking her to cover her shoulders! However if you enter the grounds fully covered, even with the tattiest clothes and the nastiest flip-flops, you'll be absolutely fine. Alright enough with the whingeing. The buildings were really lovely, with gold leaf and coloured glass featuring on the exterior and interior of many buildings. There's also an interesting fusion of European and Thai aesthetics, reflecting a particular period of Thai history. Many buildings were not open to the public and had to be admired from outside. More informational signs would also be great. In all, probably a must-see in Bangkok.
A must visit place in Bangkok full of history, ornate architecture, and art. The stunning detail found throughout the complex is mind boggling. Take your time and meander your way through the property-you won’t be disappointed. Every corner provides rich new attractions for the eye. Foreigners take note - you cannot wear shorts, you will not be allowed to enter. There are vendors around the entrance that will see you a pair so don’t distress, just have 200 baht handy (per pair).
