If you look beyond the traffic jams and smog, Thailand’s capital has a lot to offer; from peaceful temples to vibrant night markets.Grand Palace and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaew).
The Grand Palace is no longer used by the King and his family, still the apartments remain closed to the public as it is sometimes used for certain ceremonial occasions and to house visiting royalty from other countries. Wat Phra Kaew is a royal temple built within the Grand Palace compound and home to Thailand’s most sacred Buddha statue.
