While Thailand is known for its azure ocean waters, golden sand beaches, exotic wildlife, ancient temples and traditional dancers, it is also no stranger to sky scrapers! Amongst the many towering structures in the capital is Baiyoke Tower II, considered to be the tallest building in the country. It is a not to be missed attraction even if only for the panoramic views that it presents from the upper levels of the building. The bustling city of Bangkok takes on a completely different ‘look’ from this bird’s eye view high above the ground. Baiyoke Tower II is situated at number 222 Ratchaprarop Road in Bangkok’s Ratchathewi district.
The tower boasts of a height of 304 metres including its antenna. There are as many as 85 floors and the 77th floor has a public observatory from where one can take in breathtaking views of the bustling city below. On the 83rd floor is the Roof Top Bar & Music Lounge, a bar and a great place to spend the evening and watch the city lights come on. The revolving roof deck to be found in the building also provides a 360 degree panoramic view of the metropolis from high above the cityscape. It is a great place to watch day turn into night as the lights come on in the evening. For any visitor or even a local, the stunning scenery would indeed be a picture perfect moment to remember.
There is a vast array of attractions in the Thai capital and staying at an elegantly appointed and centrally located Bangkok hotel makes all the difference since it gives you the chance to truly enjoy your holiday experience. Located at the riverfront amongst the numerous Bangkok River hotels is The Peninsula Bangkok, providing stunning views of the river, its colourful cruise boats and the dazzling skyline. Offering contemporary accommodation options that are well suited for business and leisure travellers alike, this hotel provides easy access to the city’s main cultural attractions, shopping venues and commercial centres. It is also home to a spa where one can enjoy a variety of beauty treatments and therapies.
