Bangkok - Riverside, Silom & Lumphini (Chapter)
This is the Riverside, Silom & Lumphini chapter from Lonely Planet's Bangkok guidebook.
Chao Phraya River forms a watery backdrop to these linked neighbourhoods. History is still palpable in the riverside area's crumbling architecture, while heading inland, Silom, Bangkok's de facto financial district, is frenetic and modern, and Th Sathon is a subdued embassy zone.

- Relax Bangkok-style among the exercisers and exercise-observers in Lum¬phini Park, the ‘lungs of the city’.
