Grand Palace
The Grand Palace is the most popular tourist place in Bangkok. To be in Bangkok without visitting the palace is like you have not been in the city. Located in the old town or the Rattanakosin Island in the heart of Bangkok, the exquisite craftsmanship and grandeur of its architecture proclaim the true meaning of Bangkok as a "city of angels".
   
Vimanmek Mansion
A former summer palace of King Rama V that was moved from the resort island to be a royal residence in the Dusit Palace compound is the world’s largest golden teakwood building. After a renovation in 1982, the mansion has been opened to the public as the private museum of King Rama V which exhibits antiques, porcelain, photographs and other priceless memorabilia.
