Bangkok is so big, we've split it up into areas, select one of the below for detailed accommodation and food listings in that area. Sights and general overviews for Bangkok as a whole can be found via the icons above. Don't know where to start? Read an overview of Bangkok's different areas.
Balco has the most non-descript decoration ever invented: it's like vanilla ice cream, but instead of cream they used water, and instead of vanilla they used nothing.
But when the sun goes down and all the lights go on across the riverbanks, and a breeze is blowing down the Chao Phraya, and boats are sliding by below, it doesn't matter because it's really beautiful. The drinks are a good deal, with beers starting at 80 baht and cocktails at around 180 baht; food less so, but the view alone is worth the trip up here.
