  At Sathorn Pier, the river taxi, and Taksin Bridge
by Audrey118

Favorite thing: Well, we were on the river many times. With the hotel, we took a river cruise on the Manohra rice barge for dinner...it was rather romantic...even though there are lots of other people...27 guests...but you have your private table and can have a nice spicy meal and enjoy the cruise at night. They also offer sunset cruise with cocktails at THB1400.

You can also get ot Sathorn Pier and jump on any river cruise, or even jump on the long tail boat and try to figure out places with a good map.

Fondest memory: The picture here is of King Taksin Bridge, which is very close to the Shangrila Hotel and Sathorn BTS skytrain station. It is also known as the Sathorn Bridge and this two span bridge was completed in 1976.
The bridge marks the beginning of the Chao Phraya River fabulous Golden League - 3 km of architectural miralces.....
