Thailand's Grand Palace never fails to astound me every time. My mother and I made a short trip to Bangkok last month, and we just had to visit the Grand Palace again.
The intricate details of buildings are magnificent. A quick stroll around the complex will easily transport you to another world. The Grand Palace may not be the official residence of the Royal family now, but it remains as a spiritual symbol of the powerful Thai kingdon (particularly in the early 20th century). As Thailand has never been colonised, the country is steeped in traditions and art not seen elsewhere, and the Grand Palace reflects that beautifully.
