Travelodge Sukhumvit 11

Grand Palace

Probably the most visited and revered landmark in Thailand, The Grand Palace is a must-visit for all travellers. The construction of the Grand Palace began in 1782 during the reign of King Rama I, founder of the Chakri Dynasty, and it has been the architectural symbol of Thailand ever since. The Grand Palace served as a significant royal residence until 1925 and is now used solely for ceremonial purposes.

Apart from the Palace, this place is also the residence of the Emerald Buddha, carved from a single block of fine jade. Since this is a sacred place, follow the dress code: no short pants, shirts without sleeves or bare feet. As in any temple in Thailand, remove your shoes. Proper clothes are provided near the entrance of the Palace complex if needed.
