What to do in Bangkok? The #12 of things to do in Bangkok is to have a drink at the Octave Rooftop bar.
Bangkok is famous for all its extravagant Rooftop bars, one higher than the other, one has better cocktails than the other, and they all have amazing views. There are so many options, and they are all amazing – it’s hard to pick one. I went to the Octave Rooftop bar from the Marriott Hotel. The bar is fully open and offers a 360 degrees view over the whole city. It feels like you are on top of the mega metropole Bangkok. Located on the 49th floor, the wind is smoothly refreshing you, and with chill beats from the DJ desk, you can enjoy your drink. The atmosphere is relaxed, and the cocktails are amazing.
Of course, prices are in the upper price range, but if you have one cocktail/mocktail while enjoying the view, it won’t break the bank. My Mocktail cost around 300 THB (8,5 Euro). The dress code is smart casual, no shorts and no sports shoes but a jean and a T-shirt should make it.
Best way to get there is by BTS. The station Thong Lo is just next to the bar, and you avoid all the traffic hassle.
