My river-side apartment, 170 m2 with a large terrace facing the river, would be a great place for any couple wishing to have a romantic holiday.
The apartment is on the 12th floor of the condo complex with sweeping views of the Chao Phraya River.
Somerset Maugham, Joseph Conrad and Noel Coward singled out the Chao Phraya as one of their favourite spots in the Far East.
David Bowie went on a boat trip to explore the Chao Phraya River during his 1983 Bangkok concert tour. A Thai event promotion manager recalled,
"He ate sticky rice and chewed spicy Thai cilli with a straight face." "He seems to have enjoyed every minute."
This enchanting river will not fail to charm you as well.
The main bedroom has a king size bed and a large screen TV. The small second bedroom has a queen size bed. The living room is spacious and has a piano and an audio system which allows Bluetooth connectivity.

My apartment is located in the western part of Bangkok where almost all places of cultural/historical interest such as Grand Palace, Wat Poh, Wat Arun, Chinatown are located. Numerous cultural heritage sites are indeed situated along the banks of Chao Phraya river, making my river-side apartment an excellent base to explore Bangkok's rich historical and cultural heritage.
The Chao Phraya River makes a great way to get around. Chao Praya River Express operates a regular boat service up and down the river. Fares are extremely cheap - you can get just about anywhere for € 0.28-€ 0.62. The nearest pier is several blocks away from my apartment. From there, you can go on a boat trip to visit Grand Palace, Wat Phra Kaew and Chinatown, etc.
