Good day!

Thank you! ...

Marina, take a boat ride and reach the Temple of dawn - all the same different things.
If you just want to Church to get, you need to get to the pier and take a ferry. And if you want it on the boat ride, I understand you just interested in a regular boat and not a cruise, it is another. But IMHO, ride the Shuttle boat - a dubious pleasure, especially during rush hour. It is still a vehicle, do not think that you are there to see. In principle, about how to get there here we have written in detail -
But, nevertheless, here's the layout:
If you just ferry to cross, then I would chose the option to fully get across the water, but will have a little walk, but the city view, if you have not seen. Actually for me I Bangkok love that only would do so, I mean, more walk walked. In short, from the hotel along the Mall, Indra Square exit on the main street of Ratchaprarop and turn left. Walk to the canal pier to Pratunam. There on the boat get to the end of Phan Fa, is near temple of the Golden mount. And from there on foot through the whole district to the pier, Tha Tien, from where we ferried to the other side. We heard that Tha Tien like closed for renovations, but there is so nearby pier ferries run, on the spot will understand. Of course to go far, but a lot of things along the way will see, there is after all the most interesting places, maybe some temples along the way to visit.
When we did not want to walk a lot, then you can take the subway to the Marina to get with transfers. First on the airport metro two stops to Makkasan, and there on the subway and transfer to Sanam Chai. Sanam Chai is a new station according to the map, I'm there ...
