The best bars and clubs in Bangkok

You can start from a rooftop bar at sundown, a bar on top of a skyscraper offering the chance to sip a drink from the 50th storey of a building while enjoying breath-taking views of Bangkok. The most famous is the Sky Bar where a popular scene of the movie The Hangover was shot; while other interesting bars are Vertigo, Cloud 47 and Bluesky.

The area of Khao San Road is popular with backpackers.

Other famous and more transgressive areas in Bangkok are Silom, Nana and Sukhumvit.

Even if the first impression can be negative, considering the excessive traffic and pollution, the city of angels certainly offers many chances for relaxation for all kinds of travellers.

What to do in the rest of Thailand

The island of Phuket is also particularly lively in terms of nightlife. Main landmarks are the Banana Club discotheque, on the promenade, and Patong in Bangla Road, full of any sort of clubs. Pattaya is renowned for its many bars and go-go bars, where drinks are more expensive because they include the cost of a performance.
