Riva Arun Bangkok

Maharaj Neighbourhood

Tha Maharaj

If you’re not in Bangkok for long, then a visit to Tha Maharaj, just up the road from Riva Arun, is the best way to get in as many sights as you can, all in walking distance from one central location. Situated on Maharaj Road in Rattanakosin Island, on the bank of the Chao Phraya River, Tha Maharaj is a charming meeting hub of open-air restaurants, retail shops, riverside promenade and community garden, restored from traditional shop houses. Being surrounded by rich cultural heritage and tourist attractions such as museums, The Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Wat Arun The Temple of Dawn, Thammasat University, Silapakorn Fine Arts University, Siriraj Hospital and a host of diverse markets, Tha Maharaj really is your “go-to” solution to experiencing Bangkok on a time budget.

Wat Arun

If you are looking for the best location to capture Bangkok’s magnificent sunrise or sunset, you can’t go far wrong taking it all in from our own roof top bar directly opposite Wat Arun. One of the most symbolic landmarks in Bangkok, the majestic Prang (or Khmer-style tower) of the Temple of Dawn dominates the skyline and makes for a picture perfect photographic souvenir. The long time it took to construct the prang (1809-1851) is readily explained by the thousands of tiny seashells and pieces of Chinese porcelain adorning the 76m high central tower.

The Grand Palace & Wat Phra Kaeo

Construction of this stunning Bangkok landmark began in 1782 when King Rama 1 decided to move his capital across the river from Thonburi. Based on the same plan as his previous palace, it then served as the residence of the first kings of the current Chakri Dynasty and is now divided into three main quarters, including Wat Phra Kaeo, Situated in the compound of the Grand Palace, Wat Phra Kaeo, better known as the temple of the Emerald Buddha, was built as a royal temple when Bangkok was founded in 1782. The most important building in the temple grounds is the ordination hall, or ubosot, which houses the Emerald Buddha, Thailand’s most revered religious icon.

Wat Pho

You’re bound to have seen this one in countless travel guides and documentaries – you know, the one with the 46-metre-long Reclining Buddha? Now here’s your chance to experience this incredible statue up close. Wat Pho is right next to the Grand Palace, and is one of the oldest, largest and definitely most significant temples in Bangkok. This royal monastery has traditionally been a place of education, especially for Thai medicine and massage. So be sure to indulge in a Thai traditional massage at the school located in the grounds.

Wanglang Market

When it’s a favourite of the locals, you know you’ve stumbled onto something that’s going to give you keen insights into the people and culture. The narrow alleys of Wanglang Market are where you can pick up the hottest street fashion at bargain prices. Brand new or good quality secondhands, there’s a veritable feast of shoes, clothes, bags and accessories to be had. But if the feast you’d prefer is the culinary kind, Wanglang Market won’t disappoint either. Head for the end of the alley to Supatra River House, a renowned Thai restaurant, and sample its authentic Thai menu. To get there: Take a ferry across the river from Tha Maharaj (Maharaj Pier) to Wanglang Pier.

Tha Prachan Amulet Market

Many Thai Buddhists believe that religious talismans or amulets, often containing images of the Buddha or sacred objects, have special properties of protection and good luck. Tha Prachan is considered the largest and oldest amulet market in Bangkok and spans an area running from Thai Prachan Pier to Silapakorn University or University of Arts. Here you’ll find all things related to these sacred objects, from amulet trading centres and decoration services to amulet pawn shops and mini book stores on the topic. To get there: Walk from Tha Maharaj. The market runs along the road.

Flower Market (Pak Klong Talad)

Pak Klong Talad is a sight to behold, and one that will stay with you a lifetime. The sea of colours will bring a new appreciation for the wonders of nature. There isn’t a flower you can name that can’t be found here. The best time to visit  is between 2 to 4 am, when the day’s deliveries arrive and you’ll get to see the market in full bloom before retailers from all over town come to pick the very best bunches.

Siriraj Medical Museum

If you love the macabre and are looking for an off-the-beaten track experience, you’ll be right at home in the Siriraj Medical Museum. Located inside the historical Siriraj Hospital, this sinister museum promises hours of morbid entertainment with its vast collection of medical quipment and tools and anatomical and clinical specimens. Explore the history of medicine in Thailand as you wander the halls of the six distinct sections in the museum, each housing exhibits more disturbing than the last. Needless to say, you can expect preserved bodies floating in formaldehyde, skeletons and lots of body parts.

Museum of Siam

The Museum of Siam might be set in a former palace but if you’re expecting historical artifacts, dusty old relics and tired mannequins, you’re in for a surprise. Through a juxtaposition of modern art and advanced technology amidst traditional architecture, this cool museum takes you on a surreal and unforgettable trip through Thailand’s history. Permanent interactive audio-video displays that trace “The Story of Thailand”, from an ancient empire of Ayutthaya, wars and the rise of Buddhism to its rapid entry into the modern world.

Tha Maharaj

If you’re not in Bangkok for long, then a visit to Tha Maharaj, just up the road from Riva Arun, is the best way to get in as many sights as you can, all in walking distance from one central location.
