Come early to avoid the afternoon heat and crowds that are sure to gather at this top tourist destination in Bangkok. The official residence of the King of Thailand since 1782, the palace and its temples are absolutely stunning – don’t miss the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, regarded as the country’s most sacred temple. You’ll be outside most of the time, so bring sun protection. Also, get covered up – visitors in shorts, tank tops, and flip-flops will be turned away.
