The hotel is within walking distance of the Flower Market, Tha Tien Fresh Market, Yodpiman River Walk and Tha Maharaj Riverside Community Mall at Maharaj Pier.The hotel easily connects to the city center via Bangok's most distinctive mode of transportation - the river ferry. A boat ride down the river from Chao Phraya Tourist Boat Pier, literally on our doorstep, takes guests past the Chinese Shrine, which has commanded a majestic presence in the neighbourhood for centuries

Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.

Not at Riva Arun but they have a sister hotel nearby where you can swim. Ask when you check in.
