Whenever I travel I love visiting the tallest buildings in the world. Such was the case last summer when a friend and I went to Thailand's highest tower known as the 7 top view or Baiyoke tower. It happens to be a hotel as well with an international buffet sky restaurant and revolving observation deck at the apex that colorfully lights up at night. We went there prior to nightfall to get the best of both worlds: a daytime and nighttime view of beautiful Bangkok.
I managed to get short video footage of our night watch so much as the memory space on my camera allowed for. It was that kind of moment that you wish to reside in forever. The price wasn't bad for our time spent there. 1000 baht for both the buffet dinner and observation ticket. The indoor observatory contained various artifacts of Thai culture and history, including a model floating market. Then we bought a few souvenirs before going up to the outdoor deck.
7 top view is located in the heart of Bangkok nearest to Siam and Ratchathewi BTS sky train stations and is surrounded by a plethora of outdoor markets, eateries, and other sights and sounds that showcases the distinct flavor of Thailand. I definitely recommend it for any tourist's Bangkok bucket list, especially if you're looking for something rad to do on New Year's Eve.
Enjoy the pics!
