Sublime oasis

While expensive by any town’s standard this calm in the storm of sensations that is Bankok is worth it. Ms Atom and the staff are so welcoming we felt like family (in a good way), maybe even royalty. The food, both breakfast and a diner, are first rate. And you can eat while you watch the constant parade of boats on the river, most entertaining. The flower market just down the street is fascinating, especially at night. Must see sights abound in the neighborhood and the water bus-boat stops are just around the corner to take you up or down river.  Skip the in room drinks and grab your refreshments from any of several shops (even 7 Eleven) along the street. Lounge by the pool or sit on one of the the riverside decks. The sunset can be fabulous.
