The Nation - - AROUND THAILAND -

Tourists flocked to Bangkok’s world­fa­mous at­trac­tions, the Grand Palace and the Tem­ple of the Emerald Bud­dha, af­ter their re­open­ing to vis­i­tors yes­ter­day.

Both were closed to vis­i­tors from Oc­to­ber 1 to Sun­day be­fore and dur­ing the Royal Fu­neral and Cre­ma­tion of His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

The Grand Palace is now open ev­ery day from 8.30am to 3.30pm. The Tem­ple of the Emerald Bud­dha is lo­cated within the Palace com­plex.

As the Grand Palace is a Royal Palace, vis­i­tors are re­quired to dress re­spect­fully. Men must wear long trousers and shirts with sleeves, while women must wear long dresses or trousers and cover their shoul­ders.
