Year later, on our trip to Cambodia we stopped in Bangkok for a few days and decided to visit the Palace for the second time; the experience was completely different. There was an incredibly long queue to get in and the hot weather didn't help at all.The peaceful atmosphere was replaced by a noisy crowd.
The place is worth visiting but don't forget to go as early as possible, wear comfortable clothes, a fan, a hat, water and be prepared to wait in line for a long time. You will be lucky if you are able to take a picture with no tourists in it.
These pictures are from my second visit to the Royal Palace.
