    Baiyoke Tower

    by antistar Written Mar 18, 2015

    Bangkok isn't a beautiful city, and the Baiyoke Tower isn't a beautiful building. But it is tall - the tallest in Thailand, and at nearly 330 meters high, taller than pretty much everything in Europe. The Observation Deck is brightened up with some very quirky photo shoot sets. You can take pictures of yourself driving a tuk-tuk, a hot air balloon, and a 1950s Thai living room, among other things.

    Baiyoke Tower II is an 85-storey, 304 m skyscraper hotel. I went there just for the 360 degree view of Bangkok. I payed 400 bhat for the entrance ticket, with that you get a free drink at the bar located on the 83rd floor Just down the top floor . standing at the revolving desk, was nice but i felt dizzy afterwards
    Honestly, I enjoyed the bar and the drink with view more than standing at the revolving desk

    Highest View of Bangkok

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Baiyoke Sky Hotel has an amazing, rotating viewing deck up on the 84th floor! There is also a regular viewing deck on the 77th floor which we did not go to. Opened Daily from 10:30am to 11pm on weekdays and from 9:30am to 11pm on weekends.

    I'm not sure what the cost is if you just want to go up to the viewing decks. You would have to pay for it on the ground level as you cannot enter the elevators unless you show your receipt. We dined at Stella's Palace for dinner which they allowed us up to the viewing decks at no extra cost.

    The Views are just amazing and definitely worthwhile. Especially at night! Bangkok is all lit up!

    Baiyoke Tower 2

    by cal6060 Updated Nov 6, 2012

    Bangkok has two Baiyoke buildings in Pratunam district. Baiyoke 1 is a white building with colorful windows, and Baiyoke Tower 2 is a more iconic tower in downtown Bangkok. Baiyoke Tower 2 is the tallest hotel tower in Southeast Asia. It is a 85 storey building with the height of 304 m (997sf).

    Baiyoke Tower 2 is not only a hotel with 673 rooms, but it has a public observatory on the 77th floor, a rooftop bar and music lodge on the 83th floor, and 360 degree revolving roof deck on the 84th floor.

    I had noticed the tall building while riding a taxi from a highway to enter the city. First, I thought it was just an office tower or government building in the city center and really did not pay much attention to it. One day, we got out of the metro to look for our hotel in the same district. For some reason, we entered this tower hotel to use its toilet. That was how I knew it is a hotel, and took its lift up to 77th floor to check out the free public observatory. It was worth checking it out especially at night!

    You can also see the tower from the Suan Pakkad Palace Museum. I enjoyed looking at the contrast between the traditional Thai houses and the modern Baiyoke Tower 2.

    Tallest Building in Bangkok (4: tickets)

    by machomikemd Updated Oct 15, 2012

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Part four and final part of my Baiyoke Sky Tower Tips with more pictures.

    Baiyoke Sky Tower is the tallest Buidling of Bangkok but if you want to have more spectacular views of Bangkok Skyline and Beyond, Lebua State Tower Sky Bar and Banyan Hotel Moon Bar has better views and free entrance but the prices of the drinks are sky high! If you are a hotel guest of the sky tower, admission is free on the observation deck and the revolving roof deck but if you are a tourist, you will have to pay 300 Baht at the ticket counter at the ground floor as entrance fee (with one free drink included) then ride the separate elevator to the tower for 1 minute and 25 seconds and viola! you are at the 77th floor observation deck. you will ride another elevator and another flight of stairs going to the 84th floor revolving sky deck and then shooot away for pictures and videos.

    the sky deck opens from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm everyday.

    Tallest Building in Bangkok (3: more new pictures)

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    part Three of my four part tip on the Baiyoke Sky Tower with more pictures around the sky tower.

    The Baiyoke Sky Tower building is 309 meters or1,013 feet tall and although this is a big hotel in bangkok, it is popular with tourists who want to have a view of it's top revolving deck on the 85th floor as it is the highest building in Bangkok! It has 85 floors, with a public observatory on the 77th floor and a 360-degree revolving roof deck on the 84th floor. The view in the Top is Breathtaking since you can see the various expressways of bangkok and the chao phraya river and grand palace complex but I was not that Impressed since I've been to many Tower's Including the Highest being the CN Tower in Toronto Canada (see my toronto page) and Stratosphere Tower in Vegas and Macau Tower. tokyo tower, seoul tower and more.

    Baiyoke Tower

    by Cathy&Gary Updated May 6, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is certainly worth going to the Baiyoke Sky Hotel and up to the 77th floor to the Observation Deck, as well as fantastic views there are multi media kiosks, telescopes and all the info on the building of the hotel.

    There is also a revolving viewing deck with great photo opportunities on the 84th floor, this is Thailand's first open air viewing deck which is located on the highest floor of the building.

    The Baiyoke Tower opened in 1998 and the building is 309 meters high. If you were to walk the 2060 steps from bottom to top it would take you more than an hour to reach the top. The pilings run 60 meters deep underground or about the height of a 22 storey building.

    We had the seafood buffet dinner at the Bangkok Sky Restaurant on the 76th floor, this was 690baht which also includes admission to the observation deck and revolving view point. I will do a separate review on the restaurant, it was worth every baht!

    Open every day: 10.30 a.m. - 10.00 p.m.
    Address: Pratunam District, Bangkok
    Directions: Near the Pratunam Market

    Thailand's tallest building

    by Willettsworld Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Baiyoke Tower is the country's tallest building. It contains the Baiyoke Sky Hotel, the tallest hotel in Southeast Asia and the third-tallest all-hotel structure in the world, with 673 guest rooms.

    The building is 304 m (997 ft) tall, or 328 m (1,076 ft) tall if its antenna is included. It has 85 floors, with a public observatory on the 77th floor, a bar called "Roof Top Bar & Music Lounge" on the 83rd floor, and a 360-degree revolving roof deck on the 84th floor which you can go up and visit for amazing, if rather polluted, views over the city. The price includes a drink (alcoholic if you desire) which you can sip in the bar.

    Admission: 200B.

    Take a picture of Thailand tallest building, the Baiyoke Tower II. It was right beside our hotel so taking a picture during the sunny summer day was a cinch.

    Okay views, bad food...

    by Lunaina Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We decided to go to the Baiyoke Tower for dinner... we ended up on the 78th floor. The rooms were covered with some stuff that affected our views. The food was cold once you sat down at your table, it was from a buffet, and not that good, and expensive compared to what you can find in Bangkok. So I would suggest to only go to the Baiyoke Tower for the views on the viewing deck on the 84th floor!

    The Baiyoke Tower II, located on 222 Rajprarop Road in the Ratchathewi district of Bangkok, Thailand, is the country's tallest building. It contains the Baiyoke Sky Hotel, the tallest hotel in Southeast Asia and the third-tallest all-hotel structure in the world, with 673 guest rooms.

    The building is 304 m (997 ft) tall, or 328 m (1,076 ft) tall if its antenna is included. It has 85 floors, with a public observatory on the 77th floor, a bar called "Roof Top Bar & Music Lounge" on the 83rd floor, and a 360-degree revolving roof deck on the 84th floor. Construction on the building ended in 1997, with the antenna being added two years later, in 1999.

    The Baiyoke Sky Hotel website itself lists the height without the antenna as 309 m (1,014 ft), but the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH), Emporis, and SkyscraperPage list it as 304 m (997 ft), with SkyscraperPage stating that this height was supplied by the structural engineering company.
