  -> Bangkok
    -> Grand Palace

The Grand Palace is where the head of the Thai Buddhist Church lives. Also included here are pictures from the adjacent Wat Phrakaew (Emerald Buddha Temple). Grand is indeed the word for this. The place is enormous, with every square inch gilded or covered with mirrors. It was our first experience with the throngs of Chinese tourists in Thailand. Without Chinese tourists, many of the places we visited would have been completely empty.
