Best nightlife spots in Bangkok

It’s hard to love Bangkok on your first visit. Roads are congested around the clock, tuktuks try to rip you off at every occasion and skytrains only connect a part of the city. Bangkok is Asia's response to New York City, it truly never sleeps. Hence, travelers mainly stop by for the worldclass nightlife, shopping and entertainment facilities.

If you have a few nights to spare in Bangkok, here is what you should do:

Splurging at The Dome on top of LeBua State Tower

As the world’s highest open air rooftop restaurant, Sirocco is THE place to splurge. Try the opulent Chef’s tasting menu or just pop in for a Hangovertini at the celebrated Sky Bar, to enjoy breathtaking views 200m above the streets of Bangkok. Sip your cocktail while listening to the tunes of the in-house jazz band and enjoying a fresh breeze. Fans of the ‘Hangover’ series might recognize Sirocco’s entrance staircase as backdrop for many ‘Hangover Part II’ scenes.

Advice: Dress to impress

‘A short road that has the longest dream in the world’

Think noisy hostels, beer towers, cheap street food, roadside fish spas and 7-Eleven tanktops. You either love it or hate it. I’m leaning more towards the latter. But I guess as a curious traveler, you should experience it at least once, if only to marvel the variety of wild, untamed humanity on display. Also, if you’re curious, this is the place to try some barbecued insects.

Advice: Beware of the little flower girls and pickpockets

Souvenir shopping at Asiatique The Riverfront

From casual market stalls to high end stores, from fastfood to upscale dining….Asiatique has it all. Bangkok’s newest attraction is a fusion of night market, entertainment complex and shopping mall. Although it’s not the most authentic place in Asia, it certainly has a unique vibe. Mainly visited by locals, the place feels much less touristy as you’d expect. With its cozy riverside setting, it reminded me quite a lot of Singapore’s vibrant Clarke Quay. Looking for a change from the busy city center? This is it.

Advice: Come hungry
