    Baiyoke Tower 2

    Baiyoke Tower 2, Bangkok

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

The price includes a drink (alcoholic if you desire) which you can sip in the bar.

    Admission: 200B.

    Baiyoke Tower II

    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.

    Tower has the Baiyoke Sky Hotel, the tallest hotel in Southeast Asia and the third-tallest all-hotel structure in the world, with 673 guest rooms.

    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.

    Night scene through the window

    Be prepare to enjoy the magnificent night scenery of Bangkok at the top of Biyoke Sky Tower. Since the platform at the top of tower able to rotate 360 degree, visitors don't need to walk around the clock, just stand still and have a good time.

    If you are tired enjoy the night view under open roof, drop by to the down stair cafe / pub, sit tight enjoy the drinks or food while observe through the window.

    Pratunam - Baiyoke Tower

    Next to here is a night market, Pratunam. So after shopping, you can go there and see the entire city from 83rd floor.
    It cost 200 bath, but in the rotary bar just downstairs from the terrace, you can take a soft or alcohol drink showing the same ticket that you've already paid at the entrance while you see the entire city at your feet.
    Enjoy it, better at night!!!.

    A long way to the top...

    by MJS17 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    The first time I went to Bangkok I stayed at the Indra Regent and amazingly was oblivious to the fact thet the Baiyoke Skytower was only a few hundred metres away. On my second trip to Bangkok I made sure I didn't miss it. It really is one of the things you should do. We went to the 77th floor observation deck but apparently you can go to the 84th floor roof deck for an open air experience. After you've checked this out have a look around Partunam. Some people hate it but I loved it. It was a real bustling part of town...

    For those who do not know Baiyoke is the tallest tower in in Bangkok.
    After spending the night here I was a bit dissapointed by the price charged. It is far too expensive for the room and is best just to call in and visit. The buffet breakfasts and lunches are well worth the money as there is a wide selection of foods from all over Asia and deserts etc. All you can eat so turn up as hungry as you can be and make the most of it. There is also a nice bakery at the reception floor (not ground) of the hotel. The skybar is useless and tacky. It is best to just call in for a feed and visit the top floor to get a great view of Bangkok.
