Magnificent Grand Palace of Bangkok...Amazing Thailand-Part 1





The Kingdom of Thailand ~ is an irresistible combination of  breathtaking natural beauty, inspiring temples, outstanding hospitality and superb cuisine. This is my third visit to 'The Kingdom' so far...and I'm completely amazed by it's rich history, heritage and culture . Truly 'THE KINGDOM is AMAZING!!!'
Bangkok ~ The beautiful Thai capital is an independent, dynamic, influential and one of the leading cities of South East Asia. The dazzling, spectacular Grand Palace of Bangkok is a grand old dame indeed. It is undoubtedly the city's most famous landmark. Built in 1782 and served for 150 years as the home of the Thai Kings.The palace has remained the seat of spirituality and power in Thailand .
Here, a salute to the creativity and craftsmanship of the very talented Thai people.
