It is going up by 50 baht, from 250 to 300. That is only a 20% increase not 300%

It's 300% for AO because she refused to enter because the price was not what she expected.

I'd forgotten that AO refused to go in because the admission price was higher than than listed in her guidebook. Talk about penny-wise and pound foolish!

It isn't worth seeing for free in my opinion.

I miss AO. Her "unique" perspective was refreshing.

That's about $9.00 for one of the best things in all of Asia.

I agree Mango7.

Thailand is so about the people, the politics, the food, not it's gaudy buildings! I'll get howled down here by the PC's on this board-who really cares?

Mango - your comment on the Grand Palace- you must be joking right?

$9.00 is a bargain for such a wonderful place...deep with history, tradition, culture, beauty, grace. We were there 4-5 hours and, well, many, many photos! Have been twice to Thailand; visited GP both times. But...to each his own!

The Grand Palace is beautiful- repeat that ten times for your pennance or we will banish you from the board. Nobody dissess the Grand Palace

I went there in '03. It's alright for the first time visitor, especially if you're a geezer

mango---can you tell this 'geezer' one thing in bkk that you consider to be more dazzling, more interesting and more fun than a visit to the grand palace....after 11 trips to bkk, i still find it to be an amazing place!!
