This week's nice view is from the Dome at State Tower:
This is the Chao Phraya River just before it heads out to sea. Actually, most of Bangkok is behind you; what you see here is actually the province of Thonburi. The Dome is a conglomeration of two restaurants and a bar, and is arguably Bangkok's hottest place to eat right now. Haven't eaten there yet--only been up to take photos for a magazine--but hope to get there soon. Will let you know how it is.
