Bangkok’s skyline is that of glittering temples, and skyscrapers set among the iconic Chao Phraya River. For those visiting this magical city, dining among the epic skyline during the day or evening is always a treat. Certainly, there are a few restaurants that stand out among them all as they offer a fusion of the best cuisines and views. Here, we have the top restaurants with stunning views of Thailand’s capital.

1. HI-SO Rooftop Bar

Sip your delicious cocktail and party the night away at HI-SO Rooftop Bar. Offering the best view of Lumphini Park’s lush greenery, the restaurant features the most exclusive setting for seeing one of Bangkok’s most famous parks. The terrace is the best place in which to dine, as it is backed by the lit cityscape while overlooking the park. Clear glass walls offer a truly infinite view of the city, while its upscale atmosphere provides a tasteful dining experience.

It’s also the ideal location for exchanging vows and sharing your love over a candlelit cocktail dinner celebration, as well as hosting a bachelor or bachelorette party. HI-SO Rooftop Bar’s mixologists are more than delighted to create a bespoke drink in honour of the bride and groom-to-be. Additionally, there will be a creative cocktail making session. Otherwise, you can throw your own party, hire your private DJ and have some good old-fashioned fun with your best friends. You can enjoy some light meals such as wine and cheese and cold cuts or opt for more serious dishes such as burgers and steaks. The canapes can also be customized according to your likings!

3. Sirocco

Reminiscent of a rooftop jungle, Sirocco overlooks the Chao Phraya River, and the surrounding famous temples. With tables set among lush greenery, the night sky evokes neon rays from the skyscrapers. Located at the Lebua, Sirocco is, perhaps, the best place to take in the views along the river. As it is set out in the open, there is nothing better than feeling like you are floating in the sky, while becoming one with the stunning skyline.

4. The Deck

If you are afraid of heights, The Deck may just be the best place in which to view the city. Set among the Chao Phraya River, The Deck offers low elevation with a unparalleled view of the famous temple Wat Arun. Located directly across from the temple, it is a great place to watch the sun go down, signalling the illumination of the temple.
