Vertigo Rooftop Bar
Vertigo Rooftop Bar and Moon Bar are among the best rooftops in Bangkok, on the 61st floor of the famous Banyan Tree Hotel on Sathorn Road, a tall and skinny looking building.
Vertigo is the restaurant where you can have a dinner with some pretty amazing views but most people just like to hang in the comfortable chairs and sofas of the bar, for a sunset drink and some unforgettable photos. The view while not as nice as Hilton 360 is nevertheless breathtaking. You can get a bird-view on the megalopolis spreading as far as the eye can see; if the sky is clear which is not too often in Bangkok.
Prices are on the high side, expect to pay 500 Baht ++ for a glass of wine and 250 Baht ++ for a beer, which means 250 Baht +10% service charge and 7% government tax, so in fact, it would be about 292 Baht. But if you think about it, as long as you order even a soft drink, there is no entry fee to enjoy this amazing panoramic view and take some really nice shots. Staff is as efficient, smiling and polite as you can expect it from a Banyan Tree hotel. (Banyan Tree Phuket)
The best time to go for sunset is around 6.30 pm and the best way to go there if you don’t have your own vehicle is by taxi. To be on time for sunset, allow extra time as traffic in this area is pretty bad at the end of the week. Dress smart casual is required, no shorts or flip-flops.
