Best Rooftop Bar in Bangkok for a Sundowner


There are many things to do in Bangkok. One is to watch the sunset from one of the many rooftop bars in Bangkok, a tasty drink in one hand and your camera in the other.

Ok, let’s be honest: I’ve only been to ONE rooftop bar in Bangkok. But the Red Sky bar on the 55th floor of  Centara Grand at CentralWorld is really breathtaking. And Red Sky is definitely the perfect name for it. You don’t have a riverside view like in some other rooftop bars in Bangkok, but you do have a stunning 360° panorama view. And when Bangkok sinks slowly into a glowing red sky, the passion fruit martini (the signature drink) starts to taste better and better and you don’t want to leave again.

Please note that there’s a smart casual dress code. NO flipflops! But Red Sky Bar is not the only roof top bar in Bangkok, where you have to change your backpacker outfit for something a little bit more fashionable. So dress up! It’s not possible to book a table or one of the gorgeous sunbeds so it’s best to be there right in time at 5pm when they open. My tip: Go shopping at Central World and then treat yourself with a nice sundowner!

Your next trip to Bangkok is not coming up soon but you fancy a sundowner now?

Best Sunset Ever

Hi, I'm Yvonne. Travel addict. Guilty as charged. Right now I'm probably falling off a camel somewhere in a desert, getting a new tattoo from a monk in Thailand or am carrying my luggage through a river in the jungle. But just as well I could be sitting on my sofa in Berlin, in my pyjamas. Good girls to to heaven, bad girls go everywhere. Everywhere sounds much more promising. So be travelous and follow me!

  1. Not such a bad place to watch a sunset! The combination of a nice drink in hand with a beautiful view is always a winner. Corventito rooftop bar in Budapest has been my favourite to enjoy such a thing!

  2. When I was in Bangkok last year I was at the red sky Bar. The view over Bangkok was just amazing. I am looking forward to next year. Then I plan to live in Bangkok for a few months and I can enjoy delicious food, friendly people (you are also from Germany so you know the “friendliness” of zee Germans) and I will definitely go to one of the rooftop bars again.

    By the way, your blog is the first famous travel blog in English that I found from one of our fellow countrymen or countrywomen. Keep up the good work!

    Und als beweis, dass ich keinen Stuss daher rede schreibe ich dir die letzten paar Zeilen auf Deutsch. Super blog, weiter so!
