A good way to watch the hive of activity on the Chao Phrya River is to have cocktails at the Verandah of the Oriental Hotel. This casual restaurant is right on the terrace of the Oriental Hotel overlooking the Chao Phrya River and directly opposite the opulent Peninsula Hotel. I took a boat from Saphan Taksin jetty at the end of Silom line to the Oriental jetty for pre-dinner cocktails. A standard alcoholic cocktail will set you back around B300. It is a perfect place to watch the sunset over the Chao Phrya River.
Smart casual dress code is required.

Address: Saphan Taksin BTS station
Directions: From Saphan Taksin BTS station, walk towards the jetty. Look at the colour coded route map for Tha Oriental and board the boat with the corresponding coloured flag. A one-way trip costs B12.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
