Bangkok (Thailand) – November 24, 2017 (travelindex.com) – Dinner In The Sky Thailand has launched its special brand of Unforgettable High Altitude Dining Experiences in Thailand, the first time this global phenomenon has been made available to Thais and international visitors to Bangkok. Featuring the world’s only suspended dinner table, twenty-two guests are fixed securely in German TUV-approved safety harnesses, enjoying a four-course gourmet dinner prepared by Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit and accompanied by incredible city views from an area of 1,000 SQ.M. above the Emporium and Dinosaur Planet – Straight off BTS Phrom Phong.
Twenty-two guests will be seating with specially equipped safety belts around a large dinner table with the entire Dinner In The Sky system suspended by a 200-tonne European telescopic boom crane. The experience promises front row seats to the most astonishing views the city has to offer, either at Sunset or late on into the night sky – a culinary experience like nothing else bound by the laws of gravity. And with free UBER rides to and from the experience, the entire night will be a night to remember!
Friso Poldervaart of Dinner In The Sky Thailand can barely contain his excitement as he explains, “Thailand has always been recognized as a leader in Asia for dining options of all kinds. But Dinner In The Sky is Thailand’s first high-end dinner table to be suspended and served at this altitude. This innovation encourages guests to ‘Take their Eating Experience to New Heights’. We’re pleased to say that it’s the first time EVER in Thailand that Dinner In the Sky is ready for take-off. Think of DITS as the World’s most exciting dining event coming to town!”
