Songkran Trip | A Walk to Grand Palace

On the third day of our Songkran Trip, we were planning to visit Grand Palace. Unfortunely, on that day it was only opened for locals (and free!) but it's closed for foreigners :( 

Though, I can still get in to Grand Palace - maybe the guards thought that I'm a Thai. My friends couldn't get in because they didn't wear the dress code or the guards thought that they come from Myanmar, haha. So, we just took picture outside the gate and went to Wat Arun.

Dress code regulations in Grand Palace (or even any temples in Thailand)
  • No flip flops
  • No vest tops, tank tops or tight tops
  • No pants or skirts that show ankles. Basically no mini skirts, shorts, 3/4 length pants, skinny pants, etc
  • If you are not wearing the right dress code in Grand Palace, you can rent clothes but you have to pay - which is quite expensive (around 200Baht), I don't suggest this :P
How to Get There: Take BTS to Saphan Taksin and go out through Exit No.2. Take Chao Phraya River Boat  (around 15-25Baht - I forgot) to Pier 9 (Ta Chang Pier). Walk 5-10 minute through the market that will bring you to the entrance gate of Grand Palace.
Entrance Fee: 500Baht

Market near Grand Palace, we ate our breakfast here
