    One strange thing about this is that the scammers who infest the Grand Palace area telling naive tourists it is closed will be telling the truth for a change. However, taking up their invitation to go and see a big Buddha will still invariably mean ending up in a hard sell souvenir shop!

    I think that those scammers won't be anywhere near the place for fear of their lives!
