Bangkok, high in the sky, Vanilla tasting, relaxing at Health Land and a spectacular river view

We found ourselves right on top of the swimming pool on a glass floor at Long Table restaurant. It's situated on the 25th floor of the Column Tower. Long Table opened its doors in 2008 and has become one of the city's top hotspots. The main room features a 25 meter teak table, which can seat up to 70 people and is the world's longest dining table. We had a table for two on the outside instead of sitting at the long table and had a lovely view over Bangkok City companied by a bright moon. Both the food and the service were excellent and we tipped the waiter extra for that because it was more than worth it! The official name of the long table is: The Long Table of Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara AyuthayaMahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Piman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit. So practise before you make a reservation for it ;-)! A reservation in advance is recommended, especially during the weekend.

The next day we went to Vanilla Garden in the Ekamai 12 area in Sukhumvit. The relaxing atmosphere of the cafe with a view of a garden inside the compound makes it a favorite spot for locals and foreigners. The Vanilla Bakeshop became an instant hit since 2014 and transformed into a famous hang-out spot for all Thai trendsetters and celebrities. We had the privilege to sit outside in the sun and we enjoyed our lunch with an open faced sandwich with salmon, topped with salmon roe and drinks served in hip jars of course ;-). Unfortunately the book store in the Vanilla Garden has closed its doors some time ago. The bookstore was the main reason to check out this place for us. But it is still worth a visit to have a relaxed lunch in the garden.

By chance we found a very clean health spa, Health Land, in the neighborhood. It's a great spa where you can have all sorts of body massages, facials and foot reflexology at affordable prices. We chose a one hour foot massage and we relaxed to the max!

Full of energy, after this spa treatment, we dressed up to go to Sala Rattanakosin to have dinner. It cost us two taxi's to reach this hotel because taxi drivers always say yes but don't even understand where you want to go. The food was not really special but the view of Wat Arun on the opposite side of the river was so beautiful that we absolutely recommend this place. We ended our luxury trip in style with fire works. We pampered ourselves thoroughly in Bangkok with roof top views, good food and drinks, hip places to spot and a spa on top of that. It fits us, that's for sure!
