We ate lunch buffet. I ordered "coconut cooler" (in the right of photo, 140 Baht). It was cocktail of rum, cointreau, lemon juice, pineapple juice and coconut milk. It was good. After meal, I went out to the deck. The river wind was cool. The boat arrived at the Oriental Hotel pier around 6:00 PM. We returned to the room at the hotel.Back to Topics
