The Sky Bar

i've just sipped down 2 glasses of Moët et Chandon champagne at The Sky Bar in Bangkok.
it was devine...until i got the bill...more on that later, but first things first:

the Sky Bar is located on the 63rd floor of The Dome building (Thailand's 2nd tallest building). the bar is actually inside the world's largest all-open air restaurant; Sirocco, with amazing views out over the city and the Chao Phraya.

i was whisked up here by a local (but obviously wealthy) Thai friend. although i thoroughly enjoyed the amazing views, live jazz and great company, i couldn't help think of the huge gap between the people here and those back down below just living with the bare basics.

i must admit, it's nice to be able to visit this type of up-market location, but i'm glad i have to work hard to get here. it would be so boring if this was "the norm".

so as the night wore on and it was time to go back to my hotel, i was presented with the bill; ouch. around 2000 bahts per glass...well i can't complain, it was Moët and if i was gonna make a fuss about it i should have ordered a beer!

I love this particular champagne too!
My hubby and I'd take it on a special day sometimes :).
Your Thai visit is really something!

you and your "hubby" have nice taste in champagne! although i must admit, it's always nice to pop one open every once in a while, just not at "bar" prices!
