Featured in the final climax of The Hangover Part II, Skybar is an open-air rooftop bar in the heart of the Silom District.
The view is beautiful and it’s a classy spot to start or end a trip with a drink, but beware that the prices are insanely expensive. Forget your high-priced cocktail in London, New York or Los Angeles. There are few bars with a higher markup than this one, with the cheapest glass of wine costing you nearly $20 USD. It’s especially surreal in a place like Bangkok, where every beer is one buck or less, and you can get a great meal on the street for less. But it’s geared towards the farang who wants a great view and it does deliver.
Get one drink, soak up the view and take some pictures with the friends. Just don’t bring a date and expect to have any money left at the end of the night.
