Me - Grand Palace
Driver - Huh?
Me - Wat Phra Kaew
Driver - Huh?
Me - This one. (Luckily, a photo of grand palace is in the Bangkok map to show him.)
The entrance fee for the grand place is 350 Baht per person but free for locals. I think it is ridiculously expensive. I think it was on Saturday and there were a lot of tourists. It is very clean and a tourist-friendly place. The famous Emerald Buddha (ၿမဘုရား) also inside the grand palace.
There are a lot of gorgeous flowers inside the palace. I gave some times to get a few great shots.
Stupas in Thailand look different from Myanmar. Both look beautiful in my opinion.
The wall painting inside the grand palace are interesting. It is well maintained but doesn't look like ancient painting. It looks pretty new.
This is the building where Emerald Buddha (ၿမဘုရား) exist. They are not allow to bring camera inside the building. So I had to take photo of Emerald Buddha from outside the building. You will see it in next post.
The Emerald Buddha is very small and sitting inside the building. We are not allowed to bring camera inside the building. So I had to take these photos from outside which is actually quite far and low light. I have to zoom all the way to 270mm and hold my breath while taking these photos. I am pretty happy with the photo quality I got.
I hope you can see clearly what is the Emerald Buddha look like.
