The Grand Palace In Bangkok

Hey little bloggers!

One word BREATHTAKING!

Today we went to the Grand Palace. We were informed by our travel agent that there was a strict dress code at the Palace so we had to cover our shoulders and wear runners not flip-flops so we got dressed in the appropriate clothes and off to the Palace we went. The Grand Palace is the royal residence that once was a walled fortress. It was built in 1782 and for 150 years the home of the Thai King, the Royal Court and the Administrative Seat of Government. We awed at the amazing architecture. (Rebecca awing a little bit louder than the rest of us sometimes. "Awe SWEET!") It was so detailed and creative. Wat Phra Kaew (Temple of the Emerald Buddha) is also within the walls of the Grand Palace. The Emerald Buddha is Thailand’s most sacred site. While admiring this Buddha we learned that the robes on the it were changed with season by the King of Thailand and is part of an important ritual in the Buddhist calendar. A picture definitely does not do this Palace’s beauty justice.
