Wat Phra Kaew and the Grand Palace

Trip Stop: 

Also, known as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, Wat Phra Kaew is the colloquial name for the vast, fairy-tale compound that also includes the Grand Palace, the former residence of the Thai monarch. The gounds encompass more than 100 buildings, representing 200 years of royal history and architectural experimentation. Today it is Bangkok's biggest tourist attraction.
