...Baiyoke Tower and indulge yourself with their festive kind of Buffet foods..The tower has a hotel and lots of Restaurants specially in the upper deck. Be sure to check-out the dinning in the Sky Lounge @ night, they have great panorama of Bangkok in the evening!
Take a lift to the top of the Byokie Sky Hotel, the tallest in the Southern Hemisphere, and take a look around!
The lift goes up on the outside of the building, and that is scary, as you can see through a glass elevator everything around you!

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!
How to see Bangkok from above? Well, short of hiring a helicopter for a day, try the 84th storey high observatory floor of the Baiyoke Sky Hotel.
The building is 309m tall (or about 182 people standing on top of each other). If you find taking the lift a hassle, try the 2060 steps instead for a 1 hour climb. Do not worry about not seeing the view, the building has 1740 window panes. Less you worry about earthquakes, the piling of the tower runs 65m deep underground (~22 storey building) and the inside of the building occupies an area of 179400 square meters (or about 80 soccer fields).
Look for the ticket booth at the entrance of the Hotel. There is a separate lift you'll take to reach the apex. The first stop: the 77th storey for a quick browse through some exhibits and drown yourself in statistics. Connect to another lift, and you'll be on your merry way to the 83rd where you'll get to walk around an air-conned observatory area (and maybe buy a souvenir) before going for the real thing: the rotating observatory on the 84th in open air.
See BKK in circles.
After you're done spinning around, hop back to the 83rd, hunt for the rooftop bar to claim a free drink (anything on the menus for 200 Bahts or less), take some breathers before you go right back out to conquer BKK again.
Entry is 200 Bahts (circa Nov 07)
The Bangkok Observation is located at the top of Baiyoke Sky, the tallest tower in the Kingdom of Thailand. On a clear day you can apparently see as far as the coastline. It is a great place to watch all the traffic jams on the streets below.
The day we visited was cloudy so views were limited but it was still an enjoyable trip.
- 76th Floor: Sky Buffet
- 77th Floor: Observation Deck
- 84th Floor: Rovolving Roof Deck
The Baiyoke Tower II was opened in 1998. This building is 309 metres tall. The area inside this building is about 30 football fields. There are 1,740 window panes in the building. There are altogether 2,060 steps from the bottom to the top. It takes more than one hour to reach the top. The piling runs 60 metres deep underground or about the height of a 22 storey building.

Getting Up There:
If you are at the ground floor of the building I strongly recommend you take the glass elevator behind the ticket booth to the 77th floor. The elevator is on the outside of the building and it offers amazing views of the city as you are taken up to the observation deck
If you are at the parking lot, take the elevator down to the ground floor and then follow the instructions above. The view is far better than taking an elevator up from the parking lot.
The place claims to be "the World's Tallest Hotel", and from what I've seen, maybe it is.
When traveling, it is always good to find a view point to see a panoramic view of a city or region.
In Bangkok this place is the Bayoke Sky Hotel.
You can have a nice dinner on the 76th or 78th floor and then go up to the open rotating area almost on the roof and have a look at the huge city!
Go see the Baiyoke sky hotel, restaurant (Bangkok sky restaurant) and the revolving roof deck on the 84th (!) floor.
You can buy a ticket only for the view or you can buy a combined ticket whick also includes the restaurant (food's not included). The combined ticket is 410,- Bath.
You get a spectacular view of this enormous city! You also get to visit one of the better buffet-restaurants I have ever visited. Not because of the service or atmosphere (except for the view though..), but an amazing buffet of varios food from all parts of the world.
Enjoy a bird's eye view of Bangkok city!
Baiyoke Sky Hotel is the highest hotel in Thailand, possibly in Asia or in the world! There is a revolving viewing gallery constructed right at the top of this Japanese-owned hotel. Unfortunately, you have to pay about B120 just to go up there.
If you do a night cruise you will probably see the temples iluminated.
Its fantastic. Why dont you try a dinner ? Try Loy Nava dinner boat.
See this tiop on my page
It's the tallest tower in Thailand. They have a viewing deck where you can appreciate the view of the city. Go there day and night to see the difference.
