Where to sunbathe in Bangkok?


Recommended Posts

Is there any public pool, or somethhing like that (but not in hotels), where one can sunbathe? We have a pool in our building, but it is under the roof.

So, where to sunbathe? Or it is mission imposible in this city?

Please, refrain from advices that sunbathing is not healthy, that it brings cancer, etc.

I was born and raised in one Mediterranean touristy town where it is strange to be white during summer period. So yes, it is a cultural thing. And I know that Thais like to be white. But I put the que

LOL is this a joke? I guess it is not. There is like endless places to sunbath in Bangkok but assuming you want to be in a bikini etc. your best deal with be at a hotel or condo building where you pay a monthly amount. I personally just have keycards of a few condo's where my friends have units. 

 

Bangkok is very big too, not sure which area you looking for. I actually think it would be relatively easy to strike a monthly deal now many condo's are so empty (was it wasn't that difficult before already too). Like 500-1000 baht a month or something (likely incl a gym / sauna too).

 

P.S. Are you sure there isn't a rooftop you can access on your building if the pool isn't there?

There is a small rooftop pool at the Sathorn Saint Hotel, I think 100-150 for a day of pool use.  About 300m behind St Louis.  There is a path that goes there next to the Family Mart at Surasak, but look at GPS.  Not the Hilton by any stretch, but it has a good vibe.  Great garden up there, and panoramic views.

And I don't understand why my question is strange or funny?

Asian people like white skin, so by sunbathing you make yourself less attractive, which is contrary to what most people would do.

If you would ask on some western website which whitening creme is the best, people there would probably also think it's funny or strange.

The problem being is that you go to somewhere public in a pair of shorts, put a towel down and take off your shirt and start soaking up rays - then suddenly you find a body blocking your sun and a member of The Farang Puritan Decency Patrol has taken offence at seeing bare skin and has come by to tell you to stop being indecent in this highly conservative country as sunbathing in public is no doubt triggering every Thai who walks by.  All of which is nonsense.  Most Thais could give a rip.  Farangs being farangs.  As long as your not parading inside a Thai temple shirtless public sunbathing is pretty much your own business.  Well, unless you're spotted by The Farang Puritan Decency Patrol.

People can be comical.
White people in Thailand hang out in the sun to get brown.
Brown people in Thailand stay out of the sun and use all sorts of creams to get white.
Talk about Cosmic Humor at its finest.
