The old royal district, Ko Ratanakosin houses the most famous and sacred sites of Thailand; Wat Phra Kaew (famous for the Emerald Buddha and the Grand Palace) and Wat Pho (famous for the reclining Buddha).
While several of the guide books and walking tours suggest covering both sites in a few hours of the day, we actually split them across two days which worked out pretty well! The scorching heat of the daytime can be quite exhausting and would have otherwise made for some cranky shots 😉
