    My Grandparents' House

    ...an old teakwood shophouse on the Klong San side of the river...excellent views while sipping a variety of cold/hot non-alcoholic drinks and nibbling on light snacks:

    The contents of those bottles are more than a little suspect.

    In a country of mountains and jungle and waterfalls, I'm not too sure what's excellent about the view.

    Nice old wooden house though.

    Stinking polluting industrial barges and the odd actress being murdered? I guess it beats the view from your abode.

    It beats my current view by one million percent. I'd take "My Grandparent's House" view in a heartbeat.

    Indeed. Hard to come by these days.
    The rare occasion that one will come across these fine old hard wood structures.
    Take joy when you do.

    Just an educated guess but it closes around dusk. 18:00. Opens at 10:00.

    Are u telling me that a Thai restaurant with no shade closes at 6pm? Like they only open during the super sunny hours that Thai people love so much and then close when they all want to come out and eat?

    No..the sign in the first op pic is telling all of us. Bangkok and the rest of the country is full of wee shops like this that cater to local workers.
