Fastest way to get there: take the Silom Line BTS skytrain to Saphan Taksin Station. There’s a free shuttle boatto the River City Shopping Complex.

The undisturbed shopping gave off a ‘night in the museum’ effect

This is RCSC entrance opposite the banks of Chao Phraya river. I like how it looks so modern on the outside but a different world on the inside.
