Go early to beat the crowds — but even I went right when it opens at 8:30am and lines were already forming. Entrance fee is about $500 bhat. The temple structures are all beautifully crafted and the complex is huge. All of it is outdoors...More

I travelled solo and the time I went here was so crowded.. Ticket is at 500baht per person; however, you have to be creative so that you don't get other people in your pictures.. It's a nice place..

Great and impressive temples complex and palace but it's very crowded and also, in my opinion, not the best in Bagnkok. Make sure that you wear respectful clothes and you bring a hat (as you won't be able to find hats to buy inside). Overall...More

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most

Yes. They accommodated many different languages. I heard some Spanish speaking guides. Plan in advance and I'm sure they will find a Spanish speaking guide for you.
