Description

Once you've gorged on Pad Thai and stocked up on Bangkok souvenirs, make some time for Thai culture with this guided tour of the Grand Palace. Get the lowdown of a life of royalty, see Thailand's holiest religious statue, the Emerald Buddha, carved from one single piece of jade!

This stunning, ancient Siamese court, built in 1782, was once the residence of the rich and powerful Kings of Siam, who sure did love a bit of gold. Meet your guide at the Rembrandt Hotel and get ready for a 4-hour Grand Palace blowout!

Learn the importance of each decadent palace and what each one was used for. You'll visit the Funeral Palace, the Reception Palace, the Throne Hall, the Coronation Hall and the Royal Guest House.

The star attraction has to be the mesmerizing Emerald Buddha in Wat Phra Kaew, whose jade-green sheen and meditational pose will chill you out so much you might forget you're still in busy Bangkok!
