Because its magenta bracts are curiously arranged compared to those seen on othe...

The best rooftop bars in Bangkok

Few cities in the world have a skyline as impressive as Bangkok’s. As such, a rooftop drinking scene has evolved here that’s nearly as memorable as the street food and is far removed from the backpacker scene that crowds the bars and patios of Khao San Road.
