Few cities in the world fire the imagination like Bangkok. Ornate palaces that host royal processions, Buddhist temples that witness monks chanting ancient sutras, canals that lead to a maze of water markets, night bazaars that never sleep - have long proved a powerful magnet for travellers. In this sprawling metropolis, Banyan Tree Bangkok, a 5-star luxury hotel in Sathorn road, offers a spectacular rooftop restaurant and bar - Vertigo Grill & Moon Bar on the elevated 61th floor. The hostess Suritawa welcomes us with the hospitality Thailand is famous for. The greater Bangkok area has a population of around 12 million. This has in turn shifted the country from being a rather homogeneous Thai population to an increasingly vibrant mix of Western, Indian and Chinese people, giving the city a cosmopolitan status. Bangkok is known in Thai as Krung Thep Mahanakhon. The ceremonial name translates it to The city of angels.

Photo on the 62th floor of the Banyan Tree Hotel- Sathorn road in Bangkok at Moon Bar opening hours: 6.30pm - 11pm (weather permitting). It's one of the best bars in the world!

De Moon Bar is de bar van het al fresco openlucht Vertigo-restaurant van het Banyan Tree Hotel, op de 62e topverdieping van de Thai Wah II Tower. Het is de op één na hoogste bar van Zuidoost-Azie en u heeft er een prachtig uitzicht over Bangkok. Als u romantisch wil cocktailen moet u hier zijn; bovendien liggen de prijzen van de drankjes hier rond het normale hotelbar-niveau. Je kunt er vanaf 17.00 uur terecht. Mooi, want dan maakt u de zonsondergang tussen 17.30 en 18.00 uur mee, als de miljarden lichtjes van Bangkok gaan fonkelen -een fascinerende aanblik. Je kunt in deze bar gerust aanschuiven om alleen iets te drinken. Het eten in de aanpalende Vertigo Grill is goed, naar Thaise maatstaven wel behoorlijk aan de prijs. Een diner voor twee kost zo'n 200 EUR inclusief de wijn. Maar ja, zo'n ambiance mag ook wat kosten!
