Baiyoke Tower II

Siam Square, Pratunam, Phloen Chit & Ratchathewi

Cheesiness and altitude run in equal parts at Baiyoke Tower II, formerly Bangkok’s tallest building. Ascend through a corridor decked with aliens and planets (and the Star Wars theme song) to emerge at the 84th-floor, open-air revolving platform that looks over a city whose concrete sprawl can appear never-ending.
