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.

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.
