This urban home is a studio type accommodation with its private, rain forest style garden on the bank of Samsen Canal. Wat Benjamabopit, the Marble Temple is 2 km away via shaded walkways along Chitralada Palace. Wat Phra Kaew, the Emerald Buddha Temple, and the Grand Palace is 6.4 kms further down. Because of its close proximity to Rattanakosin and the royal residence, modern development around this part of Bnagkok is somewhat under curve. As a result, Ratchawat old community seems to freeze itself through time, and indeed, maintains its way of life against all changes that otherwise happen to other parts of this 250 years’ old city.
Ratchawat offers a charm of its own right. Around the corner, the old style local market is lively with daily fresh produces. Surrounded by at least 3 temples, the market is a popular spot for the good people to come make their morning merit and receiving monks’ blessing chanting to open up an auspicious day. All day round, Ratchawat market is one of Bangkok’s best street food.
Facilities: Wifi, hot shower, refrigerator, air-conditioning, complimentary fresh coffee & tea, exclusive garden on Samsen Canal with large trees in the heart of busting Bangkok.
Bus stop in front of the house. 1 km to Samsen Railway Station, 50 meter to Motorcycle-taxi post, 3 km from Sky Train’s Victory Monument Station.
