About
Made famous by The Hangover movie franchise, this bar on the 64th floor of the ritzy State Tower in Bangkok’s vibrant Bang Rak business district is great for a glamourous night out. At the tallest open-air bar on the planet, pop some champagne and enjoy 360-degree views of the city's skyline. The LED-lit bar, which changes color every minute and a half, adds to the enjoyment of their selection of classic and offbeat cocktails. So come dressed in your evening's best—there is a dress code afterall—and capture lots of memories at one of the swankiest spots in town. – Tripadvisor

Thanks to Southwest Airlines, our flight on 29 Dec 22 was cancelled, thus we didn't travel to Clearwater. We had a non-refundable New Year's Eve dinner cruise booked on Starlite Cruises, a reservation at the Wyndam Hotel and a rental car with Budget.
As soon as I knew we weren't going to going I began canceling reservations. Through texting I was able to let Wyndam know about the situation, and a kind rep took care of canceling our reservation. Fortunately we still safe from paying a penalty, but I appreciated the customer service I received from them. I cancelled the rental on line, knowing I would have a $50 cancelation fee on my pre-paid car. I was pleasantly surprised to see my payment, minus $50 promptly refunded to my account, as well a subsequent refund of the $50!! So nothing lost there.
Finally, Starlite Cruises. I had emailed them to cancel, so our spots could be used by someone else. Was aware of the no refund policy, but explained why we had to cancel. The next day I received a call from a very nice woman. She told me my $440 was going to be refunded! I was so thankful, as that's a significant amount of money to lose. I will absolutely give all three agencies my business when we reschedule a trip to Clearwater.
As for Southwest, they have reached out to refund tickets and give bonus points. They really screwed up, it was the perfect storm, but I'll still fly with them. Look forward to visiting when my husband gets past knee surgery!

Clearwater Beach is another beautiful Gulf Coast Beach. Lots of shopping and restaurants. Family friendly as well. Inflatables near the pier are perfect for kiddos. $35 for an all day pass the kids had a great time jumping, and sliding…swimming in the ocean and playing on the shaded playground. Also, sunsets on Pier 60 bring in local artisans selling some great unique items at fair prices. We truly loved it. The reason I give Clearwater 4 stars instead of 5 though is due to the amount of litter on the beach. I’ve been to Ocean City, VA Beach and Myrtle…and this is the dirtiest beach I’ve ever been to. It’s really sad. People just pack up at the end of the day and leave behind all their trash. Plastic cups, bottles, diapers, and beer cans. Unreal that people are that nasty and lazy they can’t even pick up their own trash when they go. Other than that Clearwater Beach truly is awesome and gorgeous. And a lot of fun! Clean up your trash people!

During our Orlando holiday we drove here for the day to escape the theme parks. We arrived about 10am. (Over 2 hour drive, problems at Tampa) We parked easily next to Pier 60 which is very central and got a lot more busy within a couple of hours. Parking from 10-8pm cost around $30 which is pretty standard around here. We hired a couple of beds with an umbrella ($35 until 5pm)
There’s a lot of shops, restaurants and hotels around.
Beach was immaculate and lifeguards are all along the beach. It felt quite safe and well maintained we found great places for both breakfast and evening meals.
There is a great feel around the early evening and a fantastic sunset.
I would recommend and will visit again maybe staying overnight to break up the driving.

The actual soft white beach itself is beautiful but overcrowded, the sunset is always spectacular. However the businesses and City Fathers have turned paradise into a tourist trap of traffic clogged streets, price gouging restaurants & businesses that think a visitor is some one that needs the last dollar squeezed out of his pockets, There is too much traffic on the narrow streets and grossly inadequate parking. I had to park miles from the restaurant! The public beach lot is expensive &was full. There was a time when you could drive around and find a spot on the street but now no spot is free. If you park on a public street you must enter a credit card in a computer cash box. They are charging valet rates for a car left on the street! I finally found an unattended private lot that had no prices posted and was charged $50 for a lot with no security! It's cheaper to park in Manhattan. I walked around with a knot in my stomach wondering if my car would still be there. The restaurants were all overcrowded with long waits. It was hard to even find an affordable eatery that didn't rush you in and out. I chose Crabby's by default. It was overpriced and was like eating in a parking garage. A far cry from the old Crabby bills that used to be there.. You can only walk halfway out on the pier without paying a fee for the privilege of walking the rest of the way. I have a snowbird condo in the area and I used to love Clearwater but there are more beautiful beaches in the area: Caladesi and Honeymoon Island and I don't enjoy getting fleeced. I won't be back.

We attended the Clearwater Beach Sugar Sand Festival 2022. The sand sculptures were so detailed and lifelike. If you have the opportunity to attend, then do so. Adults are $12 for entrance to this most amazing display of sand art.

Clearwater is a lovely area and calm water with alot of hotels lining a nice boardwalk filled with restaurants and shops. There are lounge chairs and umbrellas to rent on the beach ($30) but it is definitely a very crowded vibe. There are a lot of day trippers which makes it a very crowded beach. Loves crabbys dockside restaurant by marina and encounters with dolphins boat tour.

Came here four years ago and decided to come back to get away from the crazy covid-19 in Massachusetts. It was crowded but it wasn't like before covid-19. They had very limited street performers at dusk and very limited people selling their stuff on the pier prior to sunset. The sand was Clearwater soft as usual. The sunset is still awesome.

My family was looking for a beach to visit for fall break and after reading about clearwater beach, we opted to give it a try. We loved clearwater and it is now one of our favorite beaches. The sand is white, powdered sugar, in texture and the water is fantastic. The waves aren't too big, perfect for kids that want to try body boarding without the possibility of getting slammed on the beach by a rogue wave. Their are vendors that sell cabana rentals with chairs or loungers for the day. These cabanas are around $35-$40 a day and well worth the price. Some beaches require water shoes due to rocks or coral or other things like that, Clearwater is soft sand as far as you would want to wade.

We came to Clearwater Beach to get out of the snow on a recommendation from a friend. So glad we did. The sand is powder soft, water is warm (even in March), and the beach cabanas are reasonably priced (I highly recommend renting one for the day). The beach was pretty crowded, however there was still lots of room to walk, play, and relax. Stick around for the sunsets, they are amazing!!

Having visited Clearwater Beach many times over the past 35 years, a recent visit after nearly 20 years was disappointing to say the least. All the character of the resort has been lost. High rise hotel chains dominate the beach front and block the rest of the resort. The price of restaurants (more chains) and bars is eyewatering. Obviously the beach is still beautiful, but crowded. One noticeable thing missing is the wildlife - very few birds have braved the concrete jungle. Such a shame. A trip further down the coast to St Pete's Beach - hardly changed at all. Leave Clearwater to the rich.
