start Bangkok with a boat trip on public transport at sathorn pier ( BTS skytrain saphan taxin ) take a day trip ticket for about 180 bhat and with it you get a boklet about all the stops and the surroundings .
from iconsiam you can take a cross-ferry-boat to the other side and there you can try to find harmonique , one of thailands 10 best restaurants .
I call it the house of spirits .
the athmoshere is great , it is family-owned in 150 years and the best time to come is when there is still daylight .
Worth seeing ICONSIAM, wat arun, phraya athrit .
the last stop of the blue line is phraya athrit where you go through a narrow selling-tunnel . on the road you come out to turn right , about 300m , cross the road and dive into the very nice quarter with small street .
from iconsiam yoy go on with the touristline (blue line, public transport) to wat arun , very touristified temple complex . if you are a spirituell searcher look for wat janawa instead , whoich is at Charoen khrung road near saphan taxin.
there is a very nice pagoda-restaurant under a huge tree at the corner and there is a small bookshop furtheron .
if you are looking for adventure : find the khlong sansaeb ( its about an hour walk on sumen road , fortification, and boat – pier on the Canal .)
there are speedboats of public transport ( 15 bhat) .
now I try to write about ban kachao, the green lung of Bangkok, a semi-island
