Exploring Thewet Area by The Chaophraya River: we found a boutique hotel convert from a Royal Home from the Era of King Rama VI, and 2 unique restaurant.

Places featured:
1. The Raweekanlaya Bangkok: was originally built in the late 1800’s as the residence of the royal governess of His Majesty King Vajiravudh or Rama VI. The residence is also remnant of Thewet Palace, which used to be located in the area. The Raweekanlaya Bangkok features 38 guest rooms carefully designed to reflect the heritage of Old-Siam with contemporary touches. It is a true urban resort with over 900 square meters of lush greenery, ​​​highlighted by a 120 years old Banyan tree.​ They offer rare hard to find royal Thai cuisine.
2. Steve Café & Cuisine: is a riverside restaurant by the Chaophraya river, serving authentic Thai home-cooked cuisine. Some items are really hot even for a Thai; like the Southern yellow curry sea-bass and coconut heart (แกงเหลืองปลากระพงยอดมะพร้าว). Good food, reasonable price and charming ambiance.
3. Poonsin restaurant: is a well known restaurant among Thai older generations, Serves Chinese cuisine.  The roast duck is a must to order. There are wide varieties of items to choose: from steam to fried. One dish that really surprised us with their creativity is “Prawn wrap with duck feet skin, deep fried top with crab sauce ”
