  • Normally, it's just big plain area build for special event like royal family member's funeral. nothing to do much but it's surrounded by other attraction places. ie, Royal castle, emeral Buddha, musue...  more »
  • It is a very large site. No nothing has previously been wake-up ceremony of the King, such as is made in mid-February during events, large field. Who or what is being held and examined in advance seems good. Way to go by taxi to Wat Phra Kaew and being unloaded at the southern end of Sanam Luang.

  • Unfortunately, this large park across from the Grand Palace is closed - temporarily. It was used for the King’s cremation ceremony back in October 2017. A sprawling complex was specially constructed f...  more »

  • VERY INTERESTING PLACE. NOT TO BIG BUT EXISTING. THERE ARE A FEW ITEMS TO SEE HERE. THE MOST INTERESTING IS CITY POLE PLACED AT BIGGEST BUILDING. WHOLE VISIT WILL GET AROUND 20 - 30 MINUTES. FREE ENTRANCE
  • Such an amazing place that was built to honor the memory of a very important someone for the Thai people. A man they respect above all. It was a lesson, a real learning about their culture, their beliefs. This place, so beautiful, so full of meaning will cease to exist really soon and I can only thank and say how fortunate I was for the opportunity of having been there. Memories I shall never forget, beauty that isn't possible to be shown in a picture.
  • Arrived at a very quiet time so I was able to enter after just a short 15 minute wait. Expect to wait A LOT longer, usually. They have rows and rows of chairs for people to wait in. Very beautiful and interesting theology. I went at night and the light up was stunning. The museum inside feels a bit like propaganda.
  • I was amazed of the architectural design. Many people visited this place to see and experience the awesomeness of the place. When I went there it was a bit crowded. They offer some snacks, free water, umbrella and wheelchair. The place is so huge and the intricate design and fine details of the structures really amazed me so much.
  • It's a monument in memory of the latest Thai king that died. Even if it's a place of devotion to one Thai king it's still one of the best ways to know Thai culture, you can enter for free and will bet one bottle of water. Inside there are many buildings in how they made the King funeral, that is from building Thai statues and has to do Thai cultural cloths to the recent history during this kings life. It's definitely a must if your into history, monument and photos. Warning they have big waiting times to get in but it's worth it. BTW you can't go in if your using shot pans, just use one long ones from you room or just buy one for 100 but you will definitely need it on any temple in Thailand.
