  The Hotel from the river
by SirRichard

For real oriental luxury in Bangkok, stay at the Oriental Hotel.

If you just wanna visit or have breakfast or a snack on the river terrace, you better go have a shower and wera your best suit. I tried to enter "as a tourist" (T-Shirt and so) and they didn't let me in!!!

But if you go through, sit and watch the long tail boats speed by. Look at the ferries on this hustling and bustling river.
