Baiyoke II Tower information
Lonely Planet review
Thailand’s tallest tower soars to 88 storeys (85 of them above ground), the upper of which are often clad with some truly huge advertising. The main attraction here is the 84th-floor revolving observation deck. The views are as impressive as you’d expect (unless it’s too smoggy) but only just enough to compensate for the tacky decor, uninspiring restaurant and inconvenient location.
