Day 12: Bangkok's Grand Palace
The Grand Palace is nothing short of amazing. While not quite as big as Beijing's Forbidden City, it is similar in substance. However, it is much smaller--and much more ornate and lively. It's more expensive, too, with an entry fee of 300 baht (about $9). But it was definitely worth it.
Wearing shorts is forbidden, so upon entry one must pay a deposit for pants that he/she borrows. The deposit is refundable in full after visiting the Palace and providing a receipt.
Above are some photos of me in the Palace. It was an amazing site. Check it out.
