When it comes to Bangkok, there’s so much to do in the capital of Thailand. From the ancient temples and Buddhist monasteries to the vibrant street life and shopping, the city has it all. Between all of the commotion, it’s easy to miss the amazing views of the city. Here are five that shouldn’t be missed.
Lebua at State Tower
The glitzy Sky Bar, located at the Lebua hotel, is one of the world’s highest rooftop bars and it has a 360-degree view of Bangkok. Sip on some cocktails like the Hangovertinis, which was created in honor of Hangover 2, which was filmed there, as you take in views of the Chao Phraya River.
King Power Mahanakhon
Rise high above the city on Thailand’s tallest observation deck on the 78th floor. For a fee, you can walk on the skyscraper’s deck which has a glass bottom floor. Watch Bangkok come alive from day to night as the lights light up the sky.
Wat Saket, or the Golden Mount, which is built on top of a manmade 80m-high hill, was once the highest point in the city. The 18th century temple is one of the most important religious sites in the city and to reach the top you’ll have to climb 300 spiralling steps. The effort is well worth it because the views are to die for and you’ll even hear bells and gongs along the way.
