The Grand Palace buildings and grounds are so massive and intricately decorated that it’s hard to know where to look. Which is why instead of trying to capture the buildings as a whole, I instead focused on wandering around and appreciating the painstakingly detailed Grand Palace patterns, mosaics, mirrors and carvings.
As I mentioned previously, the palace was built in 1782 and was home to the reigning Thai king for 150 years. The grounds include courtyards, government buildings, receptions halls and Temple of the Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaew). What really matters though, is that the place is stunning and truly should not be missed when in Bangkok. Even all the roofs are individually tiled!
