Tourist Boat on Chao Praya river The 100 baht ticket starts at 9am to 3pm from Saphan Thaksin BTS so go at 9am to make the most of the great value ticket. You can buy it at the tourist office inside the station or outside at the pier. An interesting & different way to see the sights. Get on & off any of the tourist boats various stops for access to places like the reclining buddha at Wat Po & the Grand Palace etc. Less polluted & congested than a tuk-tuk in the city. After the last tourist boat you can still use the Chao Praya express boats until about 7pm at no extra charge. From the central pier you can also pick up the shuttle boats to hotels like the Oriental, Hilton & Peninsula.
Baiyoke Boutique hotel For all you who are not on a shoestring budget or bankrolled by a wealthy relative then the Baiyoke Boutique Hotel is the ideal choice. The rooms are modestly sized, good water pressure, working air conditioning, an LCD tv [ xtra tbth200 per night for a DVD player], the staff are friendly and it's located near to shopping areas as well as a central location in the Pratunam district. My wife an I just came back from a 5night/6day stay there and we had a fantastic time; shopping as well as sight seeing. On the other hand the distance to the BTS could be minor problem as the "15 min" to get there is by passing some of the hottest and most congested parts of Pratunam. But as i said earlier, if you plan early and have your itinerary ready then the Baiyoke Boutique is the place to stay.
