This was so beautiful and worth your time and money. 500 baht/ person. Remember to bring an umbrella, a hat, or anything can help you stand under the sun, and bring you a bottle of water, cold water is better.

The royal palace is a beautiful place to visit, but unfortunately tickets are oversold to giant groups of tourists. If you really want to see some great temples, I would recommend visiting other, lesser known ones in the city.
