Thailand: Grand Palace

Yesterday I got my first four postcards of 2017: one from Thailand, one from Taiwan, one from Russia and one from Turkey.

The card from Thailand shows the Chakri Maha Prasat in the Grand Palace. The Grand Palace is a complex of buildings in Bangkok. Construction started in 1782, but it was enlarged over the centuries. Between 1782 and 1925 it was used as residence of the Thai Kings and still today it is used for official events. Today it is also one of the most important tourist attractions in Thailand.

Thank You very much Jobbo!
