Hunt down the perfect breakfast
Eating is an essential part of every Bangkok experience, and Charoenkrung has been a mainstay on this front for both locals and tourists. Try to get up early and explore its food scene, which has everything from pocket-friendly eateries like Tuang by Chef Yip known for its scrumptious dim sum, Prachak Roasted Duck for legendary Chinese-inspired BBQ duck and pork, and Michelin-recognized Jok Prince for rice congee.
Charoenkrung is also known for many hip hangouts where you can get a good cuppa, delectable pastries, and western-style brekkie. Get freshly baked sourdough at Sarnies on Soi Charoenkrung 44, and head to La Cabra in Talad Noi to try a Scandinavian-style coffee experience.
Most of the dining and drinking spots here in the hood are open from dawn to dusk, so you can take your time to enjoy Charoenkrung and its many culinary delights.
Tips: “Explore Charoenkrung in a different way, hop on a tuk tuk to Si Phraya Pier and get on the public boat! Alternatively, you can take the hop-on, and hop-off service, which is available from 9am to 8.30pm, to visit famous attractions along the Chao Phraya River. For better views, head to our M Club executive lounge and Yao Rooftop and enjoy some drinks. To unwind and relax, grab a seat from our lobby and soak up the stylish interiors.” — Kanda Chukachon (Aom) | Chief Concierge, Bangkok Marriott Hotel The Surawongse
