Wat Yannawa is near the Sathorn/Central Pier and near Saphan Taksin BTS station. It has beautiful roof. The pier has good views of the river. We spent about one hour there.

This is a temple that looks like a Chinese Fishing Junk and seems to be associated with prosperity and trade.....nearby is a monument to 108 Chinese (merchants or monks) who perished at sea (storm or pirates)....it is not clear but there is a memorial.

Sathorn is Bangkok’s central business district, but
here you’ll find much more than international banks
and suited-up office workers. Take a stroll along the
small alleys between the skyscrapers and you’ll find
yourself among Bangkokians living life at a much
slower pace. Feast on fantastic Thai food which you
can find in the town-house restaurants, office food
courts and sidewalk food stalls spread all over the
