There is no official high observation points in that area open to the public. Especially none without glass between you and the scenery. Four Points Sheraton does not really offer great views of BK and that's about the only place with an outside area. You can go to Neo's Bar at The Address - great view of BK, but no outside area there. And, of course, professional photography not allowed.

I'm currently on a bit of a vintage trip - got addicted to Snapseed...

There is a roof top swimming pool on Dusit hotel, can't remember if you need the roomkey access to the top floor. If there are no glass boundary, it might give you a very good close up view.

The view of BK at the back entrance of Dusit is just right, I need to check my album.
