Seaview cafes near Bangkok

We all love the breezy, salt-scented air of the beach; but not everyone in Bangkok has the time to visit beach towns like Pattaya or Huahin every weekend.

But don’t be too sad, because Bangkok still sits by the ocean, with a tonne of cafes with gorgeous seaside views to visit and unwind. The best part? Some of these locations are just minutes away from the city centre and are easily accessible via BTS and taxi.

Check out our other cafe guides here:
