Soldier at Grand Palace, Bangkok

Bangkok_Thai Soldier_bw edit

The Grand Palace in Bangkok, Thailand served as the royal family’s home from the late 1700s to early 1900s. While the royal family currently lives elsewhere, it still hosts official events, plus swarms of tourists. The King’s Guard is part of the Royal Thai Armed Forces and performs ceremonial duties, protects the palace and protects the King and his family. We saw them marching when we visited the palace.

The Grand Palace is worth a visit. It has a lot of gold, which makes it very beautiful!
