Skyscraper Scenes

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!

Travel is not just what I do but it is who I am. When I first traveled abroad in high school as a foreign exchange student, little did I know that it would serve as the threshold of a lifetime interest in globetrotting. Now nearly 10 years later, I have lived in four countries and plan to do much more traveling in years to come. The world of teaching English has given me incredible opportunity to engage in cultural anthropology and I certainly can't get enough of the language learning process as a polyglot in the making.My personal website is currently under construction but I also maintain a micro-blog on facebook that enables me to share my insights and experiences with my ever-growing following. All in all, I am most proud to be known as a global citizen, a reference I accept with humility and honor. Blogging is rad! Many thanks (muchas gracias, feichang ganxie, grazie un millon, fala menogu) to KFTW for allowing me this platform to connect with the world and vice versa. St. Augustine said it best: “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page."
