Mandarin Oriental Sala Rim Naam: this is a restaurant that belongs to the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok. The Sala offers traditional Thai dinner. When I was there I was looking for a clean place that offers a class performance of Thai cultural dance and a clean dinner 😛 that comes from clean kitchens ;P our hotel recommended this restaurant for us . the restaurant is across the river opposite to the hotel.we enjoyed the ride in a traditional made Thai boat from one side of the river to the other. you should know that you will have to sit on the floor 😉 its so traditional. I really Loved it, also when we made the reservation we mentioned that we don’t want any spicy or raw food at all. The experience was wonderful I love to watch cultural dance and read about what it means. they will hand over a booklet that explains all the dances in Thai and English . you shouldn’t miss it !
Now About Transportation to close places I prefer taking BTS SkyTrain 😉 don’t worry its easy but really crowded lol but its so fun to indulge your self with other ppl and commute with them 😛 its so easy even if they don’t understand you at the station I mean they don’t know English all you have to is point with your finger showing the ticket man or the security where you want to go, then they will help you out. of course the hotel will let you know according to where you want to go which station you have to go to. They have machines for tickets but I don’t really recall my memory I think they are tokens 🙂 anyway its fun if you are able to take the stairs to the sky train station. Its the best way even better than TukTuk the small cars:) because Bangkok streets are 24 hours crowded.
