Aurum The River Place is situated on the Bangkok bank of the Chao
Phraya River, the main artery of Thailand, within walking distance
from the Grand Palace, the Emerald Buddha Temple, and the Temple of
the Reclining Buddha (Wat Po), to mention but a few.
It is part of the old Rattanakosin Island which came into existence
at the beginning of the reign of King Rama I of the Rattanakosin
(Bangkok) period over 225 years ago. Hence you will find in this
area many historical sites - palaces, temples, shrines, markets, old
communities and houses, with some areas still retaining almost
unchanged traditional ways of living.
From the hotel, guests can enjoy the view of the Temple of Dawn (Wat
Arun), one of Bangkok's best-known landmarks, located on the
opposite bank of the river. Watching the river life passing
by-passenger, long-tail boats, rice barges laden with goods, luxury
tourist boats, and many more, you will easily feel the peaceful pace
of the Thai river life style. When evening comes with a clear sky,
you will be stunned at the sight of sunset against the backdrop of
the glittering temples on the opposite side of the river.
