Let’s face it. No matter how much of a jet-setter you are, stunning views never get old. Many places around Southeast Asia have made use of the pandemic years to construct or renovate their sky-high thrills, meaning even seasoned travellers have something new to explore. If you’re looking to indulge in new perspectives and exhilarating sensations, make sure to include these new attractions around Southeast Asia in your travel plans.
1. A sky-high beach bar in Bangkok
Situated on the 78th floor of The Standard, Bangkok Mahanakhon, Sky Beach is currently the highest and most glamorous bar in the city, where Bangkok’s stylish set comes to sip on craft cocktails. Despite the elegant location, the yellow retro décor and lounge chairs that channel the French Riviera make this venue feel playful. The drinks are equally fun: an inventive All-Day Frose is a cross between a Slurpee and soft-serve wine. But the views and Instagrammable telephone booth aren’t the only draws. Keep your ear to the ground for The Standard x Disco Diaries party series. This monthly event is the perfect excuse to dance under the stars in a sky-high beach bar in the heart of Bangkok’s CBD. Disco kings and queens: prepare your dancing shoes.
