Bangkok, 1 November, 2016 – Bangkok’s Grand Palace is reopening its doors to tourists and visitors from 1 November, 2016. However, as Thailand is still in an official mourning period for His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, visitors to the Palace should wear appropriate and respectable attire.

The Bureau of the Royal Household as well as related authorities including the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, the Ministry of Transport’s Marine Department, and the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration have announced the following advice for tourists who would like to visit the Grand Palace.

Entrance and exit

There are three drop-off and pick-up locations for tour companies taking foreign group visitors to visit the Grand Palace.
1. Travel by car only: drop-off and pick-up at the Royal Rattanakosin Hotel.
2. Travel by car and boat: arrival by car, drop-off at the Royal Rattanakosin Hotel; return by boarding the boat at the Tha Chang Pier.
3. Travel by boat only: boarding the boat (maximum capacity: 400 passengers) both ways at Asiatique The Riverfront, and access via the Tha Maharaj Pier. However, there is an extra cost of 130 Baht per person.

Tour buses can park at the Rama VIII Bridge, the Old Southern Bus Terminal (about 1 km past Central Pinklao), Wat Dusidaram (at the foot of Phra Pinklao Bridge on the Thon Buri side). For smaller tour vehicles or private cars, the drop-off and pick-up is at the Chang Rongsi Bridge.

Tourist facilitation and assistance

The six officers and volunteers are stationed at the Tourist Assistance tent opposite the Wiset Chaisri Gate from 08.30-16.30 Hrs., or call +66 (0) 2642 2767 (Chinese language) and +66 (0) 84 651 5549.

The Department of Tourism in collaboration with the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration has arranged to set up signage for the drop-off and pick-up locations in English and Chinese.

The Marine Department will deploy Tourist Assistance officers at three piers: Tha Chang, Tha Maharaj and Asiatique The Riverfront.

Tourists must show their passport at the checkpoints before entering the Grand Palace, and It is advised not to bring many belongings.
