Char Rooftop Bar Hotel Indigo Bangkok

January 29, 2017 by David Herd

Char Bar

Char Rooftop Bar Hotel Indigo Bangkok Char Rooftop Bar Hotel Indigo Bangkok in 81 Wireless Road is yet another addition to the growing number of rooftop bars in Bangkok. Open at 6 pm in time for the sunset.

Impressive view of the city

Char Rooftop Bar Hotel Indigo Bangkok Bangkok at night is rather stunning, when the lights come on it’s like a fairy land.

Whisky & Bourbon

Buy by the glass or by the bottle. At B850 a glass I may give the Johnny Walker Blue a miss. 🙂

Back to the magnificent skyline

Char Rooftop Bar Hotel Indigo Bangkok I hope I have convinced you at Char Rooftop Bar Hotel Indigo Bangkok is worth a visit. 

How are the beer prices?

Char Rooftop Bar Hotel Indigo Bangkok

Well I’m glad you asked. B160 for an Asahi or Heineken & B150 foe a Singha is quite reasonable for a rooftop bar of this quality.

But my girlfriend drinks cocktails.

Char Rooftop Bar Hotel Indigo Bangkok

You are breaking my heart, either pay the B280 for a Margarita or find a new girlfriend who drinks beer. 🙂

 Char Rooftop Bar Hotel Indigo Bangkok

 photo Hotel20Indigo204.jpg Grab a front stalls seat and order some cocktails & snacks, then just sit back and enjoy the stunning view of the Big Mango at night.

Talking about snacks…

There are some interesting choices on the menu at fairly reasonable prices.

Sirocco Sky Bar State Tower Bangkok

March 22, 2016 by David Herd

Totally awesome

Sirocco Sky Bar State Tower BangkokSirocco Sky Bar State Tower Bangkok is one of the best rooftop restaurants bars in the world. In fact I really doubt if any city in the world has more roof top bars than Bangkok. I would certainly like to know if there is any place more spectacular than Sirocco which is located of the 64th floor of the State Tower building in Bangkok.

Sirocco Sky Bar State Tower Bangkok

Sirocco Sky Bar State Tower Bangkok Otherwise known as the Dome the distinctive gold roof glints in the Bangkok sunshine and can be seen from all over this great city. The tower is also home to the Lebua Hotel, for a great room rate just use this link.

 A different angle

Sunset from Sirocco Sky Bar Bangkok

Sirocco Sky Bar State Tower Bangkok Sky bar at Sirocco is amazing, the restaurant is very popular with the trendy Bangkok crowd, the food is good but the price is ridiculously high.

Centre Point Silom Hotel 

Sirocco Sky Bar State Tower Bangkok

One of my favourite Bangkok Hotels, use this link to book and get a great room rate.

 Centre Point Hotel Silom

Sirocco Sky Bar State Tower Bangkok Great location close to the Sky Train and the river ferries. One of the nicest ways to spend an hour in Bangkok is cruising along the mighty Chao Phraya river. The river ferry takes you up the lazy river for only B150 for the whole day. It is a great way to see many of Bangkok’s wonderful landmarks. A ticket to Chinatown is only B40, get off at pier number 5 at Ratchawong and walk 10 minutes up the road.

Back to Sirocco

Sirocco Sky Bar State Tower Bangkok Here are some friends of mine from Wiltshire west of London. Naturally among the many places I showed them in Bangkok Sirocco was a must see. Of course we also did a canal cruise on a long-tail boat.

Fabulous food

Sirocco Sky Bar State Tower Bangkok As you would expect the food is fabulous but the price is very high. Make sure you have your credit card with you. 🙂

 Beautiful smile at Sirocco Sky Bar State Tower Bangkok

Roof 38 Bar Sathorn Rd Bangkok

March 21, 2016 by David Herd

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

Roof 38 Bar Sathorn Rd Bangkok 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

Roof 38 Bar Sathorn Rd Bangkok The Bangkok afternoon traffic builds up just before sunset.

High above the traffic.

Roof 38 Bar Sathorn Rd Bangkok

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.

Bangkok Roof 38 Bar One this evening I enjoyed pre dinner drinks before dining at the Wine Connection in Patpong.

Wine Connection

Patpong Road Bangkok

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

Bangkok Silom Sky Bar Cloud 47

January 24, 2016 by David Herd

Bangkok before & after sunset

Bangkok Silom Sky Bar Cloud 47

 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

Bangkok Silom Sky Bar Cloud 47 About 45 minutes before sunset  in this city of 8 million people.

A closer look at Baiyoke Tower

Bangkok Silom Sky Bar Cloud 47

The building directly in front of the Baiyoke Sky hotel is Centara Grand at CentralWorld. On the top floor is the magnificent Red Sky Bar.

Chang draught beer special

Bangkok Silom Sky Bar Cloud 47 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 Sky Bar Cloud 47 The tall building in the centre is the Banyan Tree Hotel which has another famous Sky bar and restaurant called Vertigo on the 61st floor.

Bangkok’s tallest buildings

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

Bangkok Sky Bar Cloud 47 Such an exciting sight to see the lights of the “Big Mango” start to come to life.

 Bangkok traffic

Bangkok Silom Sky Bar Cloud 47

 

Peak hour is a good time to avoid the Bangkok traffic, take the Sky train instead.

Larry is quenching his thirst

Bangkok Silom Sky Bar Cloud 47 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.

Absolutely breathtaking

Bangkok Silom Sky Bar Cloud 47 City views don’t get much better than this.

Bangkok Sky Bar Cloud 47

Bangkok Sky Bar Cloud 47 By now we were on our 6th beer and feeling no pain at all.

A great night

Bangkok Silom Sky Bar Cloud 47 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.

Red Sky Bar Central World Bangkok

December 24, 2015 by David Herd

Absolutely amazing

Red Sky Bar Central World Bangkok Red Sky Bar Central World Bangkok offers a breathtaking view of this wonderful city. Perched on the 56th floor at Centara Grand Hotel on top of Central World shopping Mall.

Bistro and bar

Centara Hotel Bangkok A huge wines selection at the bistro which occupies the entire 55th floor, both indoor and outdoor dining sections to choose from, and the solely outdoor bar deck of the 56th floor wraps around the circular core of the building providing an uninterrupted 360 degree panorama of the amazing Bangkok metropolis.

Happy hour is 5 to 7 pm

Red Sky Bar Bangkok Buy one get one free is a good deal as the price as you would expect at such a venue is rather high. A Jack Daniels or a beer is B360 so getting 2 for 1 is a good deal.

After happy hour finishes

Red Sky Bar Central World Bangkok Well that’s another story, some friends turned up and Lisa from Townsville was drinking champagne which turned out to be B1,100 per glass, which equals $42 AUD or $30 USD. Now that’s not really a problem but her and her friend John left without paying, subsequently Greg, the little guy in the middle got stuck with a huge drink bill. 🙂

Enough of that, back to the amazing view.

Red Sky Bar Central World Bangkok The Baiyoke tower is 85 stories and is the tallest building in Bangkok, it includes the Baiyoke Sky Hotel, the tallest hotel in Southeast Asia and the seventh-tallest all-hotel structure in the world.

Game changer

 MahaNakhon Tower Bangkok

MahaNakhon is a luxury mixed-use skyscraper currently under construction in the Silom/Sathon central business area of Bangkok.

Atlantic Bar 2nd Road Pattaya

Atlantic Bar 2nd Road Pattaya for last 15 years has been one of my regular watering holes. Here are many of the interesting people & staff who have enjoyed it with me. The photo above is 2003 with the lovely Aew.

This is not a travel blog just a personal photo collection of 15 years at the Atlantic bar.

All that money around her neck means she is having a birthday.

December 2005

  Atlantic Bar 2nd Road Pattaya   Her name is Dah, a silly mate of ours Pothole, aka John Martin bought her a new nose & boobs & fathered 2 children with her, now in 2015 they are 8 and 6 years old. Naturally the liaison failed after several years of mayhem & war, and now he pays a fortune to educate and look after them. Is it any wonder we call him Pothole?

John  Secrets & Joergen Ulitzer

Joergen Ulitiza December 2005 and the boys are having fun, now in 2015 John is living happily in Bangkok while Joerg languishes in a Hong Kong prison on a drug smuggling charge. November 2015 and charges against Joerg have been dropped.

Sexy Cherry Bar babes Pattaya

June 29, 2014 by David Herd

Xmas 2011 at the Cherry bar in Pattaya

Sexy Cherry Bar babes Pattaya Sexy Cherry Bar babes Pattaya, I have been studying them closely for over a decade. This bar on the corner of 2nd Rd & Soi 3 Pattaya has been my local watering hole since 2003.

And so this is Xmas

Sexy Cherry Bar babes Pattaya I have been living in Pattaya since October 2011 but I have been coming here for 34 years. Nothing stays the same & neither does the Cherry Bar, over the years there have been some incredibly beautiful girls pass through here. Sadly not as many in 2015. 🙂

Why do I like it so much?

Sexy Cherry Bar babes Pattaya Well apart from the many beautiful girls that have passed through there, being on a busy corner allows me to watch the passing parade while enjoying an evening drink. At the other end of this complex is another very good bar which has just become 50% larger, the Atlantic Bar.


View from The Cherry Bar

Sexy Cherry Bar babes Pattaya This was the view from where I sit about 3 years ago, it’s not quite as good now as you will see further on.

OK, back to the sexy girls

Sexy Cherry Bar babes PattayaFlashback to 2003, the first year I started drinking at the Cherry Bar. One of the many sexy Cherry Bar girls.

Dah from 2003

Sexy Cherry Bar babes Pattaya  What a knockout smile.

Mai & Oay in 2012, terrific smiles

Sexy Cherry Bar babes Pattaya  Mai is a sweet girl who gave up her job a a Honda sales person in Bangkok to work at the Cherry Bar, she has since moved across the road to Honey 2, the soapy massage parlor. Oay on the other hand is a tall glamorous high maintenance girl who is never without a Farang throwing money at her.

Oay is certainly a knockout

Sexy Cherry Bar babes Pattaya

Last I heard she found a sponsor and quit the bar scene.

Happy group in 2012

Cherry Bar Pattaya Joergen Ulitza, Barrie Comfort, Dah, Pothole aka John Martin & John Lopez. Sadly Joergen was arrested in Hong Kong last year in July 2014 and is awaiting trial scheduled for November 2015.

All charges dropped

Sexy Cherry Bar babes Pattaya On November 6th all charges were dropped and Joergen flew to Pattaya for a couple of weeks before heading home to Melbourne on December 10. He is a very lucky man.

Daryl Evans & Heine from Airlie Beach in Australia, 2004.

Sexy Cherry Bar babes Pattaya The bar has always been a great place to meet friends from Australia, this is from February 2004, Daryl on the left now lives in Pattaya at Markland where I also live.

July 2003 , Jan in the white became my favourite girl.

Sexy Cherry Bar babes Pattaya Over the next seven years Jan was my number one favourite girl, so beautiful with a smile to die for. When I talk about Sexy Cherry Bar girls, Jan was the best.

Easy to see why

Another favourite pastime. photo IMG_0624.jpg

Absolutely gorgeous.

More of beautiful Jan

Sexy Cherry Bar babes Pattaya   Sexy Cherry Bar babes Pattaya   Sexy Cherry Bar babes Pattaya  Top is 2003 & the rest are 2008 & 2009.

Do you agree Jan is absolutely beautiful?

David Herd at Cherry Bar  This was November 2008, I could publish an entire post on Jan but I guess I have to move along.

Jan visits Cherry in 2012 pregnant with 3rd child.

Sexy Cherry Bar babes Pattaya

I’m betting raising 3 children is not as much fun as working at the Cherry bar. 🙂

October 2011

David Herd ThailandAnne & Om in October 2011. Sadly about 1 year later Om passed away after a short illness, I really miss her smiling face.

RIP Om.

Sexy Cherry Bar babes Pattaya

I wanted to hang this on the wall at the Cherry bar in memory of Om, but because of Thai tradition & culture they would not let me.

Dressing up for Loi Krathong

Loi Krathong  Loi Krathong is a festival celebrated annually throughout Thailand and certain parts of Laos and Burma (in Shan State). The name could be translated as “to float a basket”, and comes from the tradition of making krathong or buoyant, decorated baskets, which are then floated on a river. Loi Krathong takes place on the evening of the full moon of the 12th month in the traditional Thai lunar calendar. In the western calendar this usually falls in November. On the night of the full moon, Thais launch their krathong on a river, canal or a pond, making a wish as they do so. The festival may originate from an ancient ritual paying respect to the water spirits.   Government offices, corporations and other organizations bring large decorated krathongs. There are competitions for the best such krathong. A beauty contest is a regular feature and fireworks have become common in recent years.

Street cooking at its best

Sexy Cherry Bar babes Pattaya For six months or s these guys were doing a roaring trade cooking pigs before the chemist under the Cherry Bar complained to the police about the shop fling up with smoke every night.

Big Simon from the UK

Simon Wilmont In January 2013 four English friends from Wiltshire arrived and took over the Cherry bar, I would usually leave them about 10 pm and they would kick on to 2 or 3 am at the sexy Cherry Bar.

Aoy is another favourite of mine.

Sexy Cherry Bar babes Pattaya  Aoy is a very sweet girl who left the Cherry Bar when she found a guy to take care of her, I miss her & wish her luck.

 The green roof is the Cherry bar.

Sexy Cherry Bar babes Pattaya Not much to look at, but thousands of great memories have happened under that green roof. 🙂

Bath time in Soi 3

Sexy Cherry Bar babes Pattaya While Grandfather does the cooking the little one decides it is time for her bath. A great example of observing Thai life from the Cherry Bar.

I ordered a double Jack Daniels.

Sexy Cherry Bar babes Pattaya  I have been in a long term relationship with Jack. 🙂

The cost for the Leer Jet was $185,000 aud and the hospital over $300,000.

New friends December 28 2015

David Herd Cherry Bar  On the right is Jeff who is a friend of my cousin Vickie in Calgary, the other guy James saw me outside my condo in soi 1 and said “hi David” I know you from your Cape Town blog. Amazing that he recognised me in the street, so I now have another new friend, James from Pretoria. My fame is obviously spreading. 🙂

Gone baby gone!

 photo Cherry Bar gone 4.jpg Shock horror, September 1st 2016 and my beloved Cherry bar is no more. Purchased by the people who own Billabong in LK Metro they will rebuild a bigger and hopefully better bar. You can take away the bar but you will never be able to take away my wonderful memories.

Shock horror has turned into “you bloody beauty”. 🙂

Billabong 2 Pattaya It’s a new era as they say in the classics, today is Sunday September 25th and Billabong 2 opens it’s doors. Doors! what doors? I don’t see any doors.
