At the end of the day it’s time to head for a sun­downer drink – and nowhere has a bet­ter panorama for this than the Dome at Lebua, lo­cated on top of the State Tower at the river end of Silom Road. A three-stop Sky­train ride (THB28/ $0.80) from Sala Daeng sta­tion to Saphan Taksin, fol­lowed by a five-minute walk, will get you there. Then it’s a long el­e­va­tor ride to the 63rd floor and out onto an in­cred­i­ble ter­race with stu­pen­dous views of the city.You can choose from new cham­pagne bar Flute, a Per­rier Jouet Bar, or the iconic Sky Bar – the world’s high­est al­fresco bar. There’s lit­tle to match sip­ping a cock­tail around its chameleon-like cir­cu­lar bar (con­stantly chang­ing color) while gaz­ing down on the ur­ban sprawl 820 feet be­low, as mil­lions of lights turn Bangkok into a glit­ter­ing nightscape. State Tower, 1055 Silom Road; open daily 6:00 PM – 1:00 AM;
