Baiyoke Sky Tower Tours
The Baiyoke Sky Tower is the second-tallest building in Bangkok. It houses a large hotel, viewing platform, restaurants and bars, shops, and a revolving deck. The sweeping views of Bangkok are impressive, especially at night, and will help you get your bearings in the Thai capital.
At 85 stories high, Baiyoke Sky Tower is the tallest hotel in Southeast Asia. The building itself is 997 feet (304 meters) high, but with its antenna it measures 1,077 feet (328 meters). Visitors enjoy spectacular views from the 360-degree revolving observation deck on the 84th floor, a public observation deck on the 77th floor, a bar on the 83rd floor, and numerous elevated restaurants. Whether or not you stay at the Sky Hotel, the Sky Tower offers attractions for you to spend a few enjoyable hours.
Most travelers visit the Baiyoke Sky Tower independently, although a number of ticket packages are available. These include entrance to an observation deck along with hotel transfers, or a dinner package at the restaurant.
