Bangkok : Drinks Above the City

Vertigo - Bar

In Bangkok there are two places to go if you want to reach for the skies. One is Lebua State Tower and the other is Banyan Tree Bangkok.

Since Banyan Tree Bangkok is located just round the corner, we decided to head to the hotel’s rooftop bar, Vertigo and Moon Bar for some drinks (and mainly view) on our last night.

Unlike the so-called roof top bars and gardens in Singapore which has at least 2 or 3 layers of buffer or strange definitions (see Fullerton) the Vertigo and Moon Bar's rooftop bar at Banyan Tree Bangkok really meant business.

There is only 1 railing between you and the view. Dangerous it may sound, but it also meant there won’t be silly looking railings blocking your photographs and views which you are paying for.

The drinks were served with a complimentary platter of snacks including dried pumpkin, wasabi nuts (which are very popular with the Japanese diners here) and some cashew nuts. We found out about the Japanese part because there was a Japanese couple who was intrigued by our cameras and by my friend's ability to speak Japanese.

I had a Tropical Spritzer (235 THB) which tasted strongly of mango and pineapple juice.

My friends had the alcohol. I am just not into it. I can’t help thinking of the alcoholic swab they used for injections.

The views here were indeed impressive and if you can I recommend coming during sunsets for the best views.
