What’s special about most cafes in Bangkok – in addition to delectable cuisines – are the design elements. From modern designs or soothing atmospheres that reminds us of attractions foreign countries, Bangkok cafe’s are pretty hard to forget.

However, in case you’re looking for a cafe that brings you more than those elements, we suggest heading over to 747 Cafe, where you can have your meal inside of a giant airplane.

747 Cafe is built inside the world’s largest airplane

747 Cafe is a two-storey airplane bistro located on a 3.95 acre plot of land in the Ladkrabang district.

“Reinvention” is the only word that best describes the reason why this gigantic Boeing 747 HS-STA didn’t choose to land at Suvarnabhumi airport and is now a cafe.

This Boeing vehicle was formerly known as the world’s largest airliner, whose passenger service started in 1988 and was later retired.

After the decommissioning the Boeing 747, the airliner was brought back to life again in 2020. This time, it was reinvented as a cafe that attracts a lot of attention from tourists and locals alike.

Even though the engines were withdrawn from the jet, other parts still remains intact. Therefore, visiting 747 Cafe will not only offer a new cafe experience, but will also allow you to explore every inch of an aircraft – a rare experience other establishments cannot provide.

Instagrammable spots at the aircraft cafe

Before entering the cafe, visitors are required to show a flight ticket, which is available at ฿120 (~USD3.60) per person.

The ticket price can later be used to cover the food & beverages you order. The menu covers a wide array of baked goods and drinks, with prices starting from ฿110 (~USD3.31).

Upon arriving inside, visitors will be introduced to the main lounge of the aircraft, which bears a striking resemblance to the interior of spaceships.

The dining area is dotted on either side with signature-round aircraft windows, where if you get your angles right, you can trick others into believing you’re having lunch on a flying airplane.

Upstairs is a cockpit, which is another main highlight of the cafe. In this quasi-functional room, you can roleplay as a professional pilot who is controlling the system while the plane is taking off.

As the pictures have shown, the aircraft’s interior features several photogenic spots that also reveal more about the systems that keep the plane flying.

Our favourite, though, is this cobalt blue reactor that reminds us of the Arc Reactor in Iron Man. With its outstanding look, we presume that this giant arc reactor’s counterpart must be the source of power used to propel the aircraft’s engine.

The cafe also provides a small terrace that stretches out across the jet’s wings, where you can take a nice pictures with the body of an airplane and crystal clear sky as a backdrop.

Only a 30-minute drive from Suvarnabhumi airport

747 Cafe is only 30 minutes away from Suvarnabhumi airport. With the experience that the aircraft cafe offers, we’re probably sure that you’re ready to drive over to this Boeing 747 right after disembarking from yours.
