#Facilities for business traveller  Free Wi-Fi, free parking, small desk for working, Laptop Safe, Ironing and board, O2 Sky Gym.

Fun tips :

1] The Hotels’ rooms are from floor 8th to floor 32. Sky rooms from 22nd floor to 32nd floor. And stick with the rule, the higher up room, the better the view.

2] The Continent  Room offers classy bathtub in the ensuite bathroom with a side of floor to ceiling glass wall. I’m saying that with a stay there, you will not miss any second of Bangkok city view even when you are in the bathroom.

3] Hotel provides both smoking and non smoking room. Make the choice suites yourself.

4] And similar to all other worldwide skyscrapers near a train station, if a little bit of noise may affect your sleep, ask to be located away from ‘few rooms’ that near elevator and the skytrain track.  But if you’re not sensitive to this, there should be no problem.

Asiatique the Riverfront

 

A Walk to Remember at Asiatique the Riverfront

IMG_2393

#The largest mall  by the Chao Phraya Riverside Asiatique the Riverfront, the old dock turned into large open-air Chao Phraya Riverside mall, where you will never feel bored at any corners of this themed park according to the city architectures of old, with over 1,500 shops, 500 fashions boutiques, 40 bars and restaurants in total space of 48,000 square meters.

IMG_2353

 

 

 

#Old dock themed  Over a hundred year ago, the pier occupied by the East Asiatic, now is being restored to be a landmark of Bangkok with retro architecture and industrial style decorations.  Shops are under 10 huge warehouses, split into small streets. And you may stop to take picture every 10-15 minutes because there are lots of themed park features like key (heart) locked wall, old style clock tower, old trams, human statues and animal figure like golden elephants.

IMG_2333

#Enjoy fresh breeze from the river  When you think about open-air market, you would think about hot and humid air of Bangkok which is even more painful experience when you have to be among the crowd. But at this huge riverside mall, opening in early evening, there is always a gentle wind generating fresh breeze makes the mall strolling even more enjoyable. Plus as it giant space, you will not feel crowded nor step on anybody feet unintentional. And forget about dust. The whole market floor and walk way is polish concrete.

IMG_2366#Enjoy shoppings It is like night bazaar where you can buy fashionable clothes, textiles, souvenirs, accessories and antique home decor items. There is more than 1,500 shops! Somehow you will find what you like.

#Enjoy the shows  If you would like to dive into Thai culture, this tourist friendly place also offers the proud to present shows from  Joe Louis Thai Puppet Theater, Calypso Cabaret, and Muay Thai Live.

#Enjoy the Ferris wheel A ride on the 53-meter-tall wheel will enable you to see stunning night view of the river bank and the “City of Angels” beyond from top.  Not recommended to do it alone because the view is quite romantic.

IMG_2459#Enjoy the tempting food, good wines and cold beers Over 40 themed bars and restaurants boast fine ingredients and serve Thai and international like French, Italian, Japanese, Chinese and all time favorite seafood. Good beers and wines from every corners of the world are serving at the open-air riverfront zone where you can enjoy live music playing every night. Sipping a glass of wine or a cup of cold beer, breathing the fresh breeze of the river, listening the song of your favorite while enjoying the river and dazzling city night view; what else you want more?

IMG_2376

#When to go Every day from 16.00-23.30 hrs. Avoid Saturday and Sunday if you prefer more solitude.

#How to go  Grab a BTS Skytrain to Saphan Taksin Station. Walk out of the station at exit 2, look for sign of “Sathorn Pier” and walk down to the pier where free rounded shuttle boat operates every day from 16.00-23.30 hrs, departs every 15 minutes.  Or if you are staying in Silom or Sathorn area, and would like to avoid traveling by boat,  taxi is also a good choice as it is not so long distance driving.  Or if you stay in hotel located on the river bank, mostly there is free shuttle boat from the hotels.

#Lots of Thai foods waiting you there!

#One of the most beautiful canal markets in Bangkok.

Talad Klong Lad Mayom lies about 12 km of Temple of the Dawn or Wat Arun in Thai.  This temple is perched along the bank of the Chao Phraya River.  If you have Thai 10 Baht coin in hand, take a look and you will see this temple at a side of it. So you can visit the floating market and go on visiting Wat Arun at the same trip.

#Exploring local life by the river.

Bangkok has another nick name as “Little Venice” as before the most popular transportation in Bangkok is a boat and people used canal instead of road. It is a part of their life. Nowadays, many things have changed, but simple local life by the canal is still happening and charming, worth your short day trip after your business trip in Bangkok or during your holiday.

Activities

#Strolling the canal market.

#Visting Temple of the Dawn (Wat Arun)

When to go

#Saturday, Sunday and Thai Public Holidays  from 09.00-16.00 hrs

How to go there

#By BTS Skytrain + Taxi

If you are in the city center, take a BTS Skytrain to Bang Wa Station (End of Silom Line; the dark green line) and walk out at Exit 1 or 2. Next take a taxi, tell the driver to go “Talad Klong Lad Mayom” It would take about 15 minute driving and taxi would cost approximately 70-90 Bath. BTS route click

#By boat + Public bus

Cath the public ferry at “Tha Prachan pier “ to “Tha Rot Fai pier” And walk out of the pier to the front road and wait for the public bus ( Rot Song Taew) to go Talad Klong Lad Mayom.
