Back to Bangkok,
A little bit depressed
by what we had seen in Vietnam and Cambodia combined, our
trip was almost coming to the very end. We had one final
evening in Bangkok, so decided to spend it in style, staying at the Lebua at State Tower,
an absolutely gorgeous hotel.
Our room was tastefully decorated with a view to die for
(we stayed in the 2 bedroom suite on the 60th floor), overlooking
the streets of Bangkok and the infamous river Chao Phraya.
We started off with a glass of Champagne before dining
at the Lebua Restaurant, located on the 63rd floor, making
it the world's largest al fresco restaurant. The food was
good, not great, but the view was absolutely unbeatable
so it definitely made up for any shortcomings with the food.
We had an after-dinner drink at the Sky Bar, making the
evening just about perfect before returning to our room
preparing for our airplane trip to coooold and snowy Sweden
the following day. This truly was the end to our three month
long journey to South East Asia and we can't wait to go
back and explore so many places we did not have a chance
Tower & Sirocco

And apparently the world's highest Al Fresco restaurant.

This restaurant was fabulous. Although we
dined on the 63rd
floor, it was still not cold outside, with little wind and
piano music echoing through the "Dome" and it's surrounding
areas. One had to walk down the stairs to enter the
dining area. A very exclusive entrance and even
more spectacular setting. A very great evening
to celebrate the end of our 3 month trip.
