Novotel to Bo Bae Tower

by Melanie_Putra

Hi Guys!

I am interested to visit Bo Bae Tower for shopping. Is it worth it if I don't intend to buy in bulk? Don't fancy JJ Market anymore since it is too hot for me. Is it better than MBK? I just want to look for some clothing...
Anyway, just want to confirm the best way to go there from the Novotel Hotel.
1. Is this the best way to travel from Novotel Hotel to Bo Bae Tower - Catch the BTS to Rachathewi Station then head for the Rachathewi Pier to hop on the river taxi?
2. How long is the walk between the BTS station and the pier and again the Bo Bae Pier and the Bo Bae Tower?
3. Is it safe for a single female to take this route?
4. Is it complicated? where do you pay for the river taxi fare and how much would that be per 1 way? Can you catch any river taxi that is heading that direction?

Thanks, Mel

There more then 1 Novotel Hotel in Bangkok (I think 5 of them) can you specify the exact location of yours?

Taxi wont cost you more then 70 Bhat per way and lot more comfortable with heat and sun (also rain) in Bangkok these days. If you really wish to take the canal boat then you have to take the EAST/WEST (Golden Mount Line) heading West from Saphan Hua Chang Pier which is near Ratchathewi Station, 2nd stop (Talad Bobae pier)fare 8 to 10 Bhat, and you still have to walk about 5 minutes to get there,

Its absolutely safe to walk there.

BoBae tower is mainly for the garments, MBK offer a lot more then garments

Sorry... it is Novotel Siam Square.

That is not very far from Bobae Plaza, I suggest you better take meter taxi from the street which will cost you 50 to 60 Bhat

Melanie: it is very very safe for a female traveller.
I'd be more concerned about the pick-pockets around at crowded markets and public river taxis. Always carry your bag in front of you instead of around your back.
Play it safe and you'll have a great time!

Travel Tips for Bangkok

Mind this....

by kylian74

I was standing by infront of this board waiting for the opening of the Grand Palace. At first we were only about 5 persons lined but 15 minutes before opening there was a tourist bus arrived, so the entrance gate become too busy with tourist!

FORTUNE TELLER

by Adeline_Foo

Get your fortune told outside the WAT TRAIMITWITTHAYARAM TEMPLE Here I am putting a coin inside one of the many machines to get my fortune! There are altogether seven machines ... one for each day from Monday to Sunday. You are supposed to put one coin into the machine of the day of your birthday. For example, if you were born on Monday, you will get fortune from the Monday machine. It was fun doing this but don't really believe it!

Head and Feet

by Unknownsu

Thais believe the head to be the most sacred part of the body. Thus, refrain from touching a Thai on the head, especially an adult, even as a friendly gesture. The feet are also off limits. They are considered the lowest and dirtiest part of the body so trying keeping your feet on the grounds at all times.

Hot, hot, hot!!!

by syllybabe

dress for warm weather...shorts, sleeveless tops, t-shirts, a hat, sandals, etc. anything that will combat the heat. SUNSCREEN!! you'll probably do a lot of walking outside and without sunscreen, before you know it, you could be fried :-) lots of memory for your digital camera and extra batteries. almost everything in bangkok is a photo opportunity.
