We can go just up to the gate . There is nothing much to do. Off course we can take some pics in front of the gate.

You can see the palace in the distance, take photos with the guards and outside the palace gates. I was fortunate to be there when the horse and guard change over occurred, rather formal proceedings.

contrary to what you are told on the hop on hop off bus, you are not allowed in. You can only get to the gate and fence and take a few pics with the guard. I read that there is changing of the guard ceremony...More

I got to see some of the kings men on horses. The guards on duty the time I went spoke english. So you can ask them questions.

We visited the palace on the HOHO route, arriving at 11.40. The commentary suggested the changing of the guard would occur at 12pm, so we waited around until 12.30 and still saw nothing. One member of our party was particularly interested in seeing the COTG...More

No need to spend more than 10 minutes or so here. Get a few pictures, have a quick look around and then get out of there.
