  • Uncover the history behind this unique complex

Start by downloading the Action Tour Guide app, which will function as your personal tour guide, audio tour, and map all in one. Once downloaded, your tour begins at the Grand Palace gates, in the heart of bustling Bangkok. From there, you’ll enter the spacious grounds and get your first good look at this ancient, storied complex. One of the first things you’ll see on your route is the famous Emerald Buddha. This incredible statue is perhaps the most well known of the Palace’s many wonders, and for good reason. There’s plenty of history (and mystery) behind this statue, all of which you’ll soon uncover! Next, you’ll see other intricate statues, including one depicting a terrifying demon that holds an important place in Thai legends. Then you’ll follow a route through the rest of the Palace, taking in sights such as the shimmering Golden Chedi and the deeply sacred Hor Phra Monthian temple. While you explore, you’ll be learning all about the history, culture, and mythology behind the plentiful works of art which decorate the palace. At last, you’ll see the extravagant Borom Phiman Mansion before continuing to a pair of fascinating museums. Then you’ll complete your circuit of the Palace. Your tour will conclude back at the main gate, right near where it began.
