Besides other nicknames such as City of Angels the Thai capital is often named as the city that never sleeps. This is so true since even at night there is always something happening and going on worth seeing and visiting. Here are a few recommendations to visit in Bangkok at night:
Activities along the Chao Phraya River at night
The lifeline of Bangkok is always rewarding to see at night. Several spots and activities cater to tourists giving you a spectacular experience. One thing you could do, is take a river cruise on a dedicated boat with included dinner and dance show. However, for people on a budget or less time you could also just hop on one of the river ferries that cruise along the river and enjoy the views. Attractions along the river include the beautifully illuminated Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn), the Asiatique — The Riverfront night market and the brand-new shopping mall Iconsiam. Both shopping venues have their own and free shuttle boats from Saphan Thaksin pier.
Enjoying the diverse nightlife
One could start at one of the plenty available night markets or outdoor restaurants, that often turn into a bar or live music venue later in the evening. Another place, that has become an attraction just to walk around and see it by oneself are the red light districts in Bangkok — Soi Cowboy, Nana Plaza and Patpong, which also features as a night market with counterfeit goods and unique Thai souvenirs. If you are staying at a hotel in Sukhumvit Soi 2 it's just a stone throw to Nana Plaza and the bars in Soi 4. There's nothing indecent or naughty to go there and have a drink in the bars, you can even see couples, groups and families walking around there. If you not exhausted yet and would like to dance the night away, the highest density of nightclubs are in Sukhumvit Soi 11, Thonglor and RCA.
Rooftop experience at night
Almost every well-known hotel or commercial high-rise building in Bangkok has their own rooftop bar or restaurant. Nothing can compare to watch the sunset and the city lights or river after dusk. Search on the internet which place fits you the best as there can be wide gaps in the price range and dress code for visiting a rooftop bar. Still, one of the most popular rooftops bar, made legendary by the Hollywood movie Hangover, is the Lebua@State tower. They even have an iconic cocktail named “The Hangover“. Other places that are favourites of travellers and locals are the Red Sky bar at Central World or the Escape bar and fusion restaurant (mixing Peruvian with Japanese cuisine) at Emquartier.
