come through #Bangkok
and the 1st thing they do is head to #lebuahotel
rooftop to begin what they hope will be the beginning of one of the most epic nights of their lives, thanks to culturally enlightening film Hangover 3.
While a beautiful bar, albeit filled with bros in ill-fitted suits, I would suggest another adventure next door.
This abandoned tower is nicknamed Ghost tower by the locals because someone apparently committed suicide and now haunts the place. It was abandoned in the 90s during the Asian financial crisis and has become one of the most beautiful places in Bangkok to see the sunset and view the river.
A group of us brought some wine and music and joined others doing the same. Most of the rooftop does not require moronic risk such as I am taking here in my effort to feed my addiction to heights. You simply climb many many stairs and are on a flat surface. There are missing pieces of cement so you could have a nasty fall so I don't recommend you get pissed drunk! But I mean if you exercise the same caution when doing a rocky hike you will be fine.
The tricky part is that it has become very hard to get past security, but posts for #ghostowerbangkok
will show you folks are making it through. A hefty bribe is a prerequisite, and persistence. It used to be 5 dollars but not sure about now!
Would love to go on a date there next time I'm in the city where I lived as an #expat
for 4 years! 🇨🇦

Be safe and respectful of the locals no matter what!
