Sky Bar at lebua
Sky Bar at lebua
Sunday, 27.07.2014 (continued from Floating markets Damnoen Saduak and Amphawa)
Get up at 6 pm, taxi to Surawong to meet my friends at 7 pm at Somboon Pochana seafood restaurant in Surawong. I am not sure if I have heard of this place before, but they certainly have a high turnover of customers and were full (my friends had a reservation).
After that, van to Asiatique (I have been three times before, nothing to write home about, probably the same overprices stuff you can get elsewhere), where my friends to some shopping.
Then to Sky Bar at lebua (State Tower 64th floor). Stay there 9:40 to 10:48. I didn't know that we would go there, fortunately I dressed in long trousers and closed shoes for the dinner, otherwise I would not have gotten in!
I follow my friends and ignore staff (asking if I come for dinner or drink). There is plenty of staff around, advising customers where they can take photos and where not. My friends order drink, I just enjoy the view without ordering a drink (the whole trip was an invitation, but I want to check if ordering a drink is compulsory or if staff will bother you). This leads to the surprising discovery that you can enjoy the view for free, without ordering a drink! (Now I have to check carefully what the policy at Bayoke II tower is, maybe I can pull the same trick there.) The area around the bar (no chairs, standing only) was full, but not crowded.
From internet: drink prices start at 320 Baht (+10% service charge + 7% VAT) for a beer.
