Bangkok never disappoints tourists thanks to its stunning landscapes and fascinating things to do. Your trip wouldn’t be complete if you don’t come to the sky bars there.

>> Top popular Bangkok’s sky bars (Part 1)

Cloud 47 Rooftop Bar and Bistro

Cloud 47 is also a pleasant surprise compared to many of the other sky bars in Bangkok. The location can’t be beaten, right in the centre of Silom Road and just past the Patpong Night Market, it’s a 5 minutes walk from Sala Daeng BTS station. Situated on the roof of the United Center office tower this place still offers the glamour of a Bangkok sky bar without the elevated prices to go with it – drinks are very affordable here, considering you usually pay more for the views. Also no dress code required. As the name suggests, Cloud 47 is on the 47th floor and the views are great but reserve your table if you want to guarantee the best spots in the house.

47th Floor, United Center

United Center office/Cloud 47 is about 5 minutes walk from Sala Daeng BTS.

Octave Rooftop Bar, Marriott Hotel Sukhumvit

The amazing 360 degree views from this Bangkok sky bar is one of the top selling points yet because the hotel is not right on the main tourist drag you can enjoy the views in relative peace and quiet, without having to battle for a table or a seat. This is also helped by the fact that Octave Rooftop Bar is set over three floors at the top of the hotel and that the designers made sure there was a substantial selection of seating that would be able to enjoy those breathtaking views. With three floors to choose from you can select which one best suits your mood, from the lounge atmosphere on the first level, perfect for dinner, to the DJ chillout tunes on the floor above.

Marriott Sukhumvit/Octave Rooftop Bar is a 3-5 minutes walk from Thong Lo BTS station.

Sky Bar at Lebua State Tower (via booking.com)

Sky Bar, the Dome at Lebua State Tower

This has to be the most famous sky bar in Bangkok though the drawback to fame is the inevitable crowds. Sky Bar by Lebua is a fabulous place, there’s no doubting it, and if you’re a fan of The Hangover movies this will be the place you want to visit for a night out, but expect it to be busy. The buzzing vibe may be just what you’re looking for, and when combined with the amazing views from the 63rd floor you can see why the location scouts for the popular Hollywood movie picked this place above all others. Look out over the river and the city as the sun sets over Bangkok.

Lebua State Tower/Sky Bar is a 7 minutes walk from Saphan Taksin BTS station.

Park Society, Sofitel So

The bar and restaurant of Park Society stands out among all the many other sky bars in Bangkok because its views are different to the norm. Set on the 29th floor of Sofitel So, this rooftop bar has a beautiful view over the greenery and lakes of Lumphini Park and beyond to the skyscraping skyline of Siam and Silom offering the perfect combination of a nature versus man vista! The best time to enjoy these views is around sunset as the sun goes down and you’ll get to see the park and the changing light of the city, making this destination perfect for romantic evenings.

Sofitel So/Park Society is a 3-5 minutes walk away from Lumpini MRT station. A big road to cross tho.

Vertigo and Moon Bar, Banyan Tree Hotel

Our number one best sky bar in Bangkok is the Vertigo and Moon Bar! Set up on the 61st floor of the Banyan Tree Hotel this is one of the highest sky bars in the city, and as the name suggests it’s probably not the ideal place to bring someone who doesn’t like heights! But, if you’re ok with the heights you’re in for an amazing night out enjoying the beautiful views over the city and the winding river. The views aren’t too dissimilar to Sky Bar at Lebua and despite the fact that this place doesn’t have a Hollywood accolade it makes number one on our list because it’s quieter and more relaxed than Sky Bar. Here you actually have the chance to sit and enjoy the views while relaxing over a cocktail whereas there you’ll be competing for elbow room. Vertigo restaurant is at one end of this completely open rooftop venue and the Moon Bar is at the other, connected together via an open-air bridge, this place really is everything what you would expect from a sky bar in Bangkok!
