Take a selfie with a guard at the Grand Palace#2 of 43 things to do in Bangkok
The beautiful 18th century ensemble covering 218,000 square meters is made of several buildings surrounded with four walls. There are temples, museums, the Royal library and the temple of the Emerald Buddha in the palace’s territory.
