Bangkok Forensic Museum at Siriraj Hospital

Bangkok Forensic Museum at Siriraj Hospital

Bangkok Forensic Museum [toc] Bangkok Forensic Museum is not on people's top 10 list of things to see in Bangkok, at least not on a first trip, but it seems to rank high on people's 'Off the beaten track travel guide'.

Cielo Sky Bar Bangkok on Sukhumvit

Cielo Sky Bar [toc] Cielo Sky Bar is another fantastic high spot located at the intersection of Rama IV and Sukhumvit road in Bangkok. The view from the 46th floor of the Luk Condominium is surprising considering that the building is located more on the outskirt of town than the other famous rooftop but this is compensated by the height and the beautiful 180˙ panorama and the prices which are

Speakeasy Rooftop Bar Bangkok at The Muse Hotel

Speakeasy Rooftop Bar at Hotel Muse [toc] Speakeasy Rooftop Bar at Hotel Muse Bangkok on Langsuan street is not your usual rooftop bar: like the entire hotel, Speakeasy displays a convoluted Art-Deco design to create a fancy atmosphere. And it's a partial success. The lobby of the bar is nicely crafted but rather dark, like the rest of the hotel. The staff is politely welcoming but rather strict on the

Three Sixty Rooftop Lounge at Millennium Hilton Bangkok

ThreeSixty Rooftop Bar at Millennium Hilton Bangkok

A great rooftop bar by Bangkok riverside [toc] The Three Sixty Rooftop Lounge at Millennium Hilton Bangkok is a superb but rather under-appreciated rooftop bar. This might be because seen for far, the bar seems to be inside an indoor panoramic cupola. This indoor bar has indeed fantastic views as it seems to hang high above the busy Chao Phraya river, but it would not qualify as a rooftop if
