but be sure that your guide is in good mood and speaks good English! And of course: Knows the history! If you have studied in advance you can make the trip alone. I've done both, but a good guide makes it fantastic.

The visit, along with the views of the Royal Palaces is well worth the effort. Beware though - it gets very very crowded

The palace grounds are truly worth seeing. Take a guide who can explain. Go early in the morning. Take at least 1/2 day

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around

We were a party of adults but children were in there with adults - sombre dress code and very good behaviour. Tourists all pay. Stroller is okay in some areas - but not all.
