Eight Places to Enjoy the Perfect Happy Hour
Collected by Matt Long
Happy hour drinks are easy to find around the globe, but what makes a truly great experience is the surroundings. Stunning views, great weather and good friends all come together to create the perfect happy hour and these eight places are some of my favorites.
Wat Sam Phraya, Phra Nakhon, Bangkok 10200, Thailand
Bangkok is a city of beautiful views and In Love is one of its best riverside restaurants. Overlooking the Chao Phraya River, watch as dozens of river taxis race by and the sun sets behind the Rama VIII Bridge. We found this spot quite by accident...
