Night Photography in Bangkok

Bangkok is an amazing city at night boasting spectacular rooftop bars, impressive temples, neon signs, and colorful tuk-tuks slalom through the traffic. Below are just a few examples of what to photograph in Bangkok by night.

Saphan Taksin BTS Skytrain Station Bangkok

CHAR Rooftop Bar

MBK in Bangkok

There is a bridge linking Siam Square with MBK Shopping Center which is a perfect spot for light trail photography.

One of the highest rooftop bars in Bangkok is Vertigo & Moon Bar – situated on the 61st floor of the Banyan Tree Hotel. You better not be afraid of heights!

Sunset Wat Arun

Wat Arun is one of Bangkok’s most famous landmarks, but unfortunately, the 70 meters high temple is under restoration at the moment and is not lighted up at night. This shot was taken from Eagle’s Nest rooftop bar at Sala Arun.

Chinatown in Bangkok by night

Chinatown is amazing at night, and the long strip of neon signs provides some great photo opportunities. I took this shot after 10 p.m. and some of the neon signs were already turned off. Come here between 6 and 9 p.m.

There is something special about street food and it’s hard to beat T&K Seafood in Chinatown by night.
