The Temple of the Emerald Buddha is located close to The Grand Palace in Bangkok which should be on the to-do list of any tourist to Thailand. This Temple has always been very popular as many of Thailand’s best temples and scenery is located in the area.
The best time to visit the Temple of the Emerald Buddha is in the morning when the doors open at 8am. Like all other Temples in Thailand always come dressed appropriately (no exposed knees or shoulders) and enjoy a walk around the area. Note that the admission fee for The Grand Palace area which also includes The Emerald Buddha temple is 500 THB (US$16). Also this ticket admits you into the Vinmanmek Mansion Museum in the same area. The architecture us amazing and well worth a visit when in Bangkok. The opening times are between 8am to 4pm and the area has many tour groups during the day.
