Discover Bangkok’s main attractions with tickets to the Royal Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew – the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. On this 4-hour tour you will explore the beauty and history of these famous sights with an expert guide.
What to Expect
On this 4-hour tour you will first explore Wat Phra Kaew and the nearby attractions before moving on to the Grand Palace in Bangkok. A visit to the Royal Grand Palace, the nation’s landmark and most praised royal monument in Thailand is a must for any visitor. The former royal residence of the Chakri Kings, the palace is the perfect example of an ancient Siamese court. Built in 1782 by King Rama I, it was the center of power for more than 150 years. Today, the palace is Bangkok's major landmark and most popular tourist attraction.
Wat Phra Kaew, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, is located right next to the Grand Palace and together form perhaps the greatest spectacle for any visitor to Bangkok. Dating back to 1782, when Bangkok was founded, Wat Phra Kaew consists of over 100 brightly colored buildings, golden spires, and glittering mosaics.
