Baiyoke Tower in Bangkok
Bangkok Highest Rooftop And Thailand’s 2nd Tallest Building
With 84 stories the Baiyoke Tower is an unmissable towering landmark in Pratunam area. The skywalk with
large viewing windows on the 77th floor is the best place to get sweeping bird’s eye views of the skyline floor
while the revolving rooftop observation deck on 84th floor is a bit too noisy and hot to keep visitors very long.
Bayoke is currently the 2nd tallest building in Thailand, at 309 metres. Adding the 34.35-metre spire,
the building is 343.35 metres tall in total.
Baiyoke Tower (pronounce ‘Bayok’) is an aging hotel built in 1998, and has mostly become an attraction and
a shopping complex all in one. The area where the tower stands is the famous Pratunam market with thousand
shop all selling clothing and garments. It’s not glamourous and a can even be a bit dispappointing, but it’s all about the views.
Baiyoke Tower II Shopping Experience
Apart from the view points, Baiyoke Tower II offers six levels of shopping. But don’t expect glitz and glam, as
shopping in Pratunam area caters to wholesale, mass market type of clothing. Instead of brand names and
designer labels, think affordable clothes that are good for blending in rather than for making a fashion
statement. You don’t have to buy in bulk as prices are already very cheap even if you pay the retail price for
single pieces. Most shops will offer a discount when you buy three or more items.
Compared to nearby Baiyoke Tower and Pratunam Market, Baiyoke Tower II shopping offers more variety
for men and indie type of clothing. The second basement level is interesting, as it has all kinds of graphic
-printed T-shirts imaginable, whether cartoon characters, football club logos, graphic nude women, heavy
metal types, rock emblems, reggae style, embroidered patterns, tie dye, and many more. Accessories like
bags, beads, necklaces, hats, belts and more T-shirts can be found on the fourth floor.
