BEST ROOFTOPS IN BANGKOK?

S’il y avait une sortie incontournable à choisir à Bangkok, je dirai sans hésiter : admirer la cité des anges autour d’un verre en haut de l’une de ses tours. Voici le top 10 des meilleurs rooftops de Bangkok.

Slider

Maintenant, que vous connaissez les meilleurs rooftops de la ville, vous n’avez plus qu’à y aller (à Bangkok) en cliquant ici par exemple.



Voici le top 10 des meilleurs rooftops de Bangkok en détail :

S’il y avait une sortie incontournable à choisir à Bangkok, je dirai bien évidemment sans hésiter une seule seconde : boire un verre en haut d’une tour pour admirer la vue magique sur toute la ville. S’il fallait y ajouter un moment en particulier dans la journée, je dirai tout aussi naturellement à la tombée de la nuit ou plus précisément au coucher du soleil qui laisse une luminosité exceptionnelle et garantit des photos sublimes et un instant inoubliable. Bangkok est l’une de ces rares villes au monde qui offrent assez facilement des panoramas « perchés » époustouflants. Voici le top 10 des rooftops à Bangkok, à ne rater sans aucun prétexte, quoi faire absolument à Bangkok (top 10 rooftops Bangkok).

VERTIGO & MOON BAR (61st FLOOR)

Le lieu est juste exceptionnel. On ne se lasse jamais de cet endroit surplombant la magnifique cité des anges. Magique au coucher du soleil. Un must assurément. J’adore toujours autant à chaque fois.

Adresse : 61st Floor, Banyan Tree Hotel, Sathorn

Horaires : tous les jours de 17h à 1h (restaurant de 18h à 23h)

LONG TABLE (25th FLOOR)

Idéal pour celles et ceux que la hauteur démesurée fait peur. Le Long Table rooftop se distingue surtout de par la qualité de sa « gastronomie » en servant une cuisine thaïlandaise raffinée et des cocktails délicieux, le tout à des prix très raisonnables. La démesure tient aussi dans le nom officiel du rooftop : “The Long Table of Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara AyuthayaMahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Piman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit”. LOL

Horaires : tous les jours de 17h à 2h (dîner servi jusque 23h)

THE ROOFTOP BAR (83rd FLOOR)

Pas idéal pour celles et ceux qui ont le vertige LOL. Le Rooftop Bar, c’est ni plus, ni moins  le rooftop le plus haut de Bangkok.

Perché au 83ème étage du Baiyoke Sky Hotel à Pratunam, est-il vraiment utile de préciser combien la vue y est magnifique, même derrière des vitres?

Adresse : Ratchaprarob SOi 3, Pratunam

Horaires : tous les jours de 10h à 22h30

L’APPART (32nd FLOOR)

Conçu comme un appartement parisien de la haute société parisienne du début du 19ème siècle, les clients peuvent choisir de manger dans le salon, la bibliothèque, la terrasse sur le toit ou même dans la cuisine de ce rooftop situé en haut du superbe Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit. Design et concept vraiment originaux et réussis!

Adresse : 32nd Floor, Sofitel Sukhumvit

Horaires : tous les jours de 10h à 22h30

ZOOM SKYBAR (40th FLOOR)

Le Zoom Skybar est l’un des plus récents rooftop de la ville. Avec une vue fantastique depuis le 40e étage de l’hôtel Anantara Sathorn, il offre une perspective différente sur la ville par rapport aux autres rooftops situés plus au centre de Bangkok.

J’aime beaucoup la cuisine française moderne revisitée façon thaïe.

Adresse : 40th Floor, Anantara Sathorn

Horaires : tous les jours de 17h30 à 1h

ZENSE (17th FLOOR)

Le Zense est assurément l’endroit idéal et chic pour prendre un cocktail au coucher du soleil ou pour profiter à deux (ou à plus) d’un dîner romantique sur le toît.

Adresse : 17th Floor, Central World, 999/9 Ratchadamri Rd

Horaires : tous les jours de 17h30 à minuit

RED SKY (55th FLOOR)

Si vous êtes fan(s) de shopping, il y a de fortes chances que vous ne soyez pas loin du Red Sky. Profitez-en pour aller y boire un verre (ou 2) et ainsi admirer sa vue panoramique à 360° forcément impressionnante.

Adresse : 55th Floor, Centara Grand, Central World

Horaires : tous les jours de 17h à 1h

ABOVE ELEVEN (32nd FLOOR)

Un de mes coups de coeur assurément. En plus de venir y boire un cocktail au coucher du soleil, vous pourrez également faire l’expérience d’une cuisine péruvienne-japonaise inhabituelle mais exquise. Le must.

Adresse : 32nd Floor, Fraser Suites, Sukhumvit Soi 11

Horaires : tous les jours de 18h à 2h

SKYBAR LEBUA (63rd FLOOR)

Avez-vous vu Very Bad Trip? C’est le skybar star par excellence, servant régulièrement de décor au cinéma. La vue plongeante sur la rivière Chao Praya et Bangkok est forcément splendide. Seul hic, les tarifs vraiment élevés mais bon…

Adresse : 63rd Floor, The Dome au Lebua, Silom Rd, Bangrak

Horaires : tous les jours de 17h à 1h
