Where To Stay In Bangkok : The Best Areas To Stay
1. Bangkok Riverside Area - Bangkok's riverside is beautiful and very scenic, especially after dark, with its glittering temples, shrines, and the Royal Palace. In this area, you can explore
Bangkok's historic roots
The riverside of Bangkok is a little more expensive than other areas of Bangkok, both when it comes to hotels and restaurants. The district does not have Subway MRT and only one Skytrain station, Saphan
Taksin. From Saphan Taksin, you are a short walk away from Central Pier (3 min) where you can take the riverboats and ferries up the river. Many of the hotels have free shuttle boats that transport guests
to and from Central Pier. You can also take the free ferry to Asiatique and Icon Siam from Central Pier.
Bangkok's historic temples, Chaopharaya dinner cruise and floating market are all centred in the Riverside area.

neighborhoods, is located in the central part of Bangkok along Sukhumvit Road.
