Palaces in Thailand

Thailand's palaces are simply exquisite and fortunately many of them are open to the public.
 

Must see

Thailand has enjoyed a royal tradition for many centuries and Thai monarchs have always been treated with a reverence unparalleled elsewhere in the world. Throughout the years this level of devotion has been reflected in virtually every aspect of Thai culture. It is certainly reflected in the lavish splendour of the country's royal palaces. Of course, by far the most important palace in Thailand is Bangkok's Grand Palace. For many, a visit to the Grand Palace is an absolute essential when in Thailand. Although Bangkok does have its fair share of important palaces, it by no means has a monopoly. There are a number of important palaces of various types and styles dotted around the country.
