What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Bangkok's Grand Palace Complex and Wat Phra Kaew

Private Tour: Bangkok's Grand Palace Complex and Wat Phra Kaew

Built in traditional Thai architecture mixed with European designs, The Grand Palace complex, once the official home for the Kings of Siam, is unquestionably one of the Thailand's major tourist highlights. The King still uses the Grand Palace for certain ceremonial occasions and the regal flavor within its enormous royal grounds is still evident. During the tour you will visit the Royal Funeral Hall and the Royal Coronation Hall.

The main centerpiece of the complex however is the 45 centimeter Emerald Buddha. Carved from just one piece of Jade it is the holiest and most revered religious object in Thailand. The Emerald Buddha is housed within Wat Phra Kaew, which is a very ornately decorated building whose roof tiles reach up into the sky.

This is the only way to see the 1 tourist attraction, in our opinion! We were so grateful to have Krit to navigate the shoulder to shoulder crowd. Viator is always prompt and efficient, which is why their tours are always our first choice.
