Waiting for sunset

Roof 38 Bar Sathorn Rd Bangkok

Roof 38 Bar Sathorn Rd Bangkok is one of the many sky bars in this great city. I doubt if any city in the world has more roof top bars than Bangkok.

Mode Sathorn Hotel

Located on the 38th floor of the Mode Sathorn Hotel which is right next door to Surasak sky train. A nice relaxing atmosphere and the drinks are rather expensive as you would expect.

Freeway traffic

The Bangkok afternoon traffic builds up just before sunset.

High above the traffic.

The bar opens at 6pm so you can have an early drink and wait for the sunset. It was rather disappointing on this particular due the the haze caused by farmers burning off in the north of the country.

Waiting for the crowd to arrive.

One this evening I enjoyed pre dinner drinks before dining at the Wine Connection in Patpong.

A short train ride to Patpong and to will find the Wine Connection, an excellent restaurant.

The lovely lady is the Roof manager, very friendly with a beautiful smile. She has worked at some other bangkok Roof bars and I think the 38 bars is very lucky to have her on the staff.

As I mentioned earlier the wonderful Sirocco is perched on top at the 64th floor.

When I’m in Bangkok I like to stay in Sukhumvit Soi 11, here is an excellent budget hotel, if you USE THIS LINK you will get a great rate of around B1100 per night, or $30 USD.

Octave Rooftop Lounge Marriott Bangkok

 

The best Bangkok budget hotel I have ever stayed in.

Here is another Sky Bar you should check out.
