After the death of King Bhumibol, access to The Grand Palace and The Temple of the Emerald Buddha in Bangkok was restricted. However, since 1st November 2016, the doors were once again opened for foreign tourists. Although it’s not compulsory for you to wear black clothes, you are asked to dress respectfully and to wear muted colours or a black ribbon. Tickets are still 500 Baht. You may be asked to show your passport and your bags will be checked. These are the photos that I tweeted during the first week that the palace was re-opened.
