next group of buildings we visited was the Dusit group. These include
the king's audience hall which contains the mother-of-pearl throne
under a nine-tier white canopy.

Grand Palace in Bangkok was an extremely interesting place to visit
with it's many ornate buildings and statues. We could have probably
stayed longer, but there were other things to do and see. Our time
in Bangkok was limited and we wanted to pack as much into it as
next stop would be a full day excursion to the ruins at Ayutthaya
and Wat Yai Chai Mongkol. Join us there on the next page ...
