Bangkok before & after sunset
Bangkok Sky Bar Cloud 47 in Sathorn Rd is one of the many wonderful Sky bars in this great city. Much more casual and affordable than the others with an amazing city view.
Looking toward Baiyoke Tower
About 45 minutes before sunset in this city of 8 million people.
A closer look at Baiyoke Tower
Chang draught beer special
Pay only B299 or $12 AUD for unlimited Chang draught between 5 and 7 pm. A great deal for beer drinkers.
Thai Wah Tower II aka Banyan Tree Hotel
Bangkok’s tallest buildings
This is from a small bar area on the 2nd floor which would be a great spot for a private party.
A slightly different angle
Maybe you prefer a tent
Just before sunset
We are eagerly waiting for the lights of the city to come on.
Bangkok’s tallest building
MahaNakhon is a luxury mixed-use skyscraper currently under construction in the Silom/Sathon central business area of Bangkok. Designed to fit into the Thai landscape with a unique pixelated facade, it will have the unconventional appearance of a glass curtain walled square tower with a cuboid-surfaced spiral cut into the side of the building. Upon its estimated completion in 2015, it will become the tallest building in Bangkok at 314 metres (1,030 ft), with 77 floors. Featuring hotel, retail and residences, 200 units of The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Bangkok inside the building are priced between around US$1,100,000 to US$17,000,000, making it one of the most expensive condominiums in Bangkok. From Wikipedia.
My favourite time of the day
Such an exciting sight to see the lights of the “Big Mango” start to come to life.
Peak hour is a good time to avoid the Bangkok traffic, take the Sky train instead.
Larry is quenching his thirst
My friend Larry Krausz has recently moved to Thailand from Australia, we have known each other for quite a while, in fact in 1999 we travelled around the world including Carnival in Rio de Janeiro.
City views don’t get much better than this.
Bangkok Sky Bar Cloud 47
By now we were on our 6th beer and feeling no pain at all.
A great night
This certainly was a night to remember, Cloud 47 will become one of my regular Bangkok haunts. For those of you who like to boogie the band starts at 9 pm.
Remember the name
Put Cloud 47 on your bucket list, especially if you are a beer drinker.
