A funny thing to see but I definitely prefer the real one! The Temple that it is in, is also worth visiting! So when you are there anyway just have a quick look!

Had it not been for a tour guide when visiting Bangkok’s Grand Palace, not only would I have been endlessly lost but I learned that each of the many architectural styles of structures are derived from various cultures and countries. As example, the golden, bell-shaped stupa is Phra Si Ratana Chedi, and is in the architectural influence of Sri Lanka... More

In case you dough know where it is...it's inside the Grand Palace right within the compound of Wat Phra Keaw(Emerald Budhha)...one of the great sculptures I've seen. If you've paid for the entrance fees THB 500 which is the only Wat that charges so make it worth the penny..and if there's anyone tries selling somethin'..maybe inside Touters wondering around...remind yourself...

Angkor Wat is absolutely amazing, and you should definitely visit it while in Cambodia. This odd model of the temple is rather tacky and I still don't understand why it was put in the middle of the Grand Palace's grounds.

There is an interesting small model of Angor Wat on the temple grounds. This mini Angor wat shows the similarity of construction to the Grand Palace temple complex. Angor Wat was at one time part of one of the Thai empires.

This miniature-sized Angkor Wat complex model is pretty cool, but I'm not quite sure why it's here--the life-sized complex is in Cambodia! I would have liked some background info--was Cambodia part of Thailand at the time it was built, etc.

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
