Therefore, when you stay at the hotel, you will have Bangkok at your fingertips.

Near the hotel, you will find a world that features ancient buildings, upscale shopping, and the city’s best restaurants and nightlife scene. You also have access to an elegant rooftop bar and an onsite spa at the hotel. So, if you are going to stay at a fashionable hotel in Bangkok, this is the place to make a reservation. While in Bangkok, you will also want to make a journey over the to the grand palace. If you only see one main historical attraction, you will want to see this place.

The Royal Palace

Indeed, the royal compound fully lives up to its name with its magnificent architectural structures. The palace is also home to Wat Phra Kaeo, which, in turn, houses the Emerald Buddha. Constructed in 1782, the grand palace was the royal residence for several generations. Today it is still used for celebratory events and for visits from heads of state.

If you go ahead and visit the palace, you will need to dress conservatively. This means you will need to cover your legs and arms, and avoid wearing any sloppy apparel. For this half-day sightseeing tour, you need to visit either in the morning or the early afternoon. You may want to requisition a guide’s help to see the palace and put everything into context. Without the help of a guide, it is easy to miss salient features or not fully comprehend the relevance of what you are viewing.  You can visit the palace from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm every day.

Wat Pho

Situated immediately south of the palace, Wat Pho makes an excellent accompaniment to your tour, as long as you are up for more walking. Also referred to as Wat Chetuphon, the temple was constructed by King Rama I. It is the oldest temple in Bangkok. Wat Pho has long been regarded as a healing place, and was famous, long ago, for its pharmacy. The building was also established by King Rama III as the country’s first university.

Presently, Wat Pho is known as the Temple of the Reclining Buddha. The statue is so huge that it cannot be viewed in its entirety. The reclining idol will make you glad that you also have a beautiful place in which to recline once you get back to your stylish five-star accommodations.
