This beautiful 100-year old building, designed by Annibale Rigotti, is set in a spacious garden with a private pier on the bank of the Chao Phraya river, Bangkok. This was the first branch of the bank to be established and is still fully-functional.
Visiting Pak Klong Talat, Bangkok’s biggest flower market, is now more convenient and fun. You can take the Chao Phraya Express boat, get off at Pak Klong Talat Pier, explore the flower and vegetable market and enjoy a cup of coffee and delicious cake in a riverside cafe with a view of the city’s historical sites.
Most of Bangkok’s historic sites such as the Grand Palace and Wat Pho are located along the Chao Phraya River. So traveling on commuter boats to visit these places becomes one of the most popular activities among tourists. However, after a long walking tour, it is hard to find a place where you can sit, relax and sip a cup of coffee while watching the hustle and bustle of the river.
