Experience five-star elegance amidst one of the most prestigious skyscrapers in Bangkok: the Bangkok State Tower. Located close by are some great options for 5 star hotels in Bangkok but for a unique experience out on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, consider the Anantara Bangkok Riverside Resort & Spa which is an elegant Bangkok resort that expertly caters to both business and leisure visitors. Be sure you stop by the State Tower to enhance your trip to the city, as it is billed as Thailand’s third-tallest building and the 139th tallest in the world. No visit to the state tower is complete without visiting Sirocco, which is famed for being the world’s highest al fresco dining enclave. It is a part of the exclusive Lebua hotel, housed within the tower, and you can experience sumptuous dining fare on the 63rd floor, while you take in the majestic view of Bangkok’s glistening cityscape, the perfect backdrop for a romantic candle-lit dinner or an important business dinner with possible clients. Conde Nast Traveler has listed the Sirocco under its “Hot Nights” and “Hot Tables” tables feature, and it stays open until 1.00 am for optimal late-night enjoyment. Enjoy the soothing strains of a live jazz ensemble, the ideal serenade that adds a dash of aural spice to your meal. Sirocco is one of Bangkok’s most sought-after dining sites, and it boasts a stylish “Sky Bar” and exquisite Mediterranean fare that is sure to leave your taste buds tingling with flavour.
