Explore the area
For you to get an idea of the neighbourhood and the geography of Bangkok, rather than just words and photographs we have used Google maps so that you can also get a spatial picture of the area.
These maps are continual works in progress and we have split them up into different categories, we have highlighted with placemarks places that we (and previous guests) think are of interest and importance. If you have any suggestions please email them to us and we will include it on the maps for other people to enjoy.
Here is a pdf file to print, it has directions and a map in Thai - it is a helpful tool to give to the taxi driver at the airport. Or use our Airport pick-up service, also here is a map of the skytrain.
I believe the airport link is now open, I have not been on it yet, but if there is more than one person then I think a taxi will be better.
This is a link to the time table for the ferryboat you can this private boat to cross the river.
The apartments that we let are situated by the riverside opposite Bangkok's central pier, this riverside setting is one of Bangkok's five star neighbourhoods, and is surrounded by major hotels, such as the Peninsula, The Shangri-la, The Oriental, Chatrium suites and the Millennium Hilton - the location must be good!
According to Tripadvisor 7 of the top 20 Bangkok Hotels, are our direct neighbours.
