There is no shortage of rooftop terraces with wraparound views in Bangkok, but none can boast as beautiful a setting as the Octave Bar, perched between the 45th and 48th floors of the Marriott.
With five large terraces, this hot hangout of hip Thai youth offers breath-taking views of sunsets over the meandering river and the glittering jungle of skyscrapers.
The spacious bar in precious wood is filled with tropical vegetation and has lots of comfy chairs and couches, perfect for a drink try one of the spectacular Thai mojitos with saffron-infused vodkas or dine on a seafood platter dinner. In the evening, DJs get things hopping in the circular, blue-lit rooftop bar.
