    Wat Phra Keo and  

Grand Palace

The Wat Phra Keo is one of the most spectacular temple districts of the world and together with the grand palace you can find a nothing-comparable area in the rest of Asia. Of course we get there by express boat. From the river we saw already the golden stupa at the entrance, shining in the sun.

After short walk along the sidewalks with the authentic open-air kitchens, souvenir shops, Tuk Tuks and so on, you reach the main entrance. Only with long trousers, covered shoulders and closed shoes you can go in. You can borrow these clothes at the entrance desk for less money, too.

In 1996 it was our first visit of this spectacular and fascinating district and it became a very great photo shooting and a big video event. The indescribable splendour of thousands of jewels, gold platted statues and mirror mosaics took us the breath. We were sure, that we would come back again during our next visit to Bangkok.

Two years later we came back again, but without photo camera and video. We took a guide and we listened the whole history of the grand palace, he told us. Itís been an extraordinary experience.
