Best Places To Go At Night At Riverside Bangkok

Bangkok's Riverside along the Chao Phraya River is loaded with bars, restaurants and excursions. The region becomes additionally vibrant as dusk come around, and here are the best places to check out:


River cruise

Possibly the best way to experience Bangkok's Riverside is by taking a cruise starting just as the sun is setting. Two of the city's iconic landmarks Wat Arun and Grand Palace are an awe-inspiring sight as they light up in their glory. Two of the best cruises to opt for are aboard the Aspara Dinner Cruise and River Star Princess Cruise. The former offers a romantic dinner for two as you drift past some of the city's best landmarks located alongside the river. The latter is more of a party setting with live music, dancing, dinner buffet and a lot of mingling between the guests. Hotel's such as AVANI Riverside Bangkok Hotel can arrange a cruise of your choice during your stay there.


Sky Bar

The Sky Bar located at the Lebua State Tower is an awesome place to hit after-hours. True to its name, the bar showcases 360 views of the city, including spectacular views of the Chao Phraya River and the Bangkok skyline. The bar is one of the city's most popular haunts among tourists and locals for its creative range of cocktails, and of course the views. The bar was made immensely popular as the smash hit movie Hangover 2 was filmed here. When staying in Bangkok, if you are looking for a luxury hotel, Riverside Bangkok is the ideal place consider due to all the precious landmarks, clubs and attractions in the area.


Live Muay Thai

Head over to Asiatique for a mind-blowing theatrical performance of the ancient art of Thai kickboxing, Muay Thai. The plot of the story takes you on a wild journey from Siam to Bangkok, action-packed with kicks, punches and much more. The show is 90 minutes long and you'll be interested in knowing that, although a stage performance, the fight scenes are pretty much real. Just imagine a montage of amazing movie fight scenes happening a few feet away from you in real life! A new addition to the show is "Warrior Rising", which features rising stars from the local Muay Thai scene.


Trader Vic's

The birthplace of the signature cocktail , Mai Tai, Trader Vic's is the place to head after dark for the best Mai Tai and amazing line up of musicians in all of Bangkok. Expect a variety of music including jazz, blues, funk and some rock and roll. Wednesdays is ladies night and there is a free flow of sparkling wine.


Be My Guest

Step away from the luxury and glitter of posh restaurants without compromising on the stunning views of the river by walking into Be My Guest. Casual dress code and a no-frills menu means you don't need to dig deep into your pocket.
