One of the highest building in Thailand
The King Power Mahankhon Tower with his 314 m and 78 floors was ranked as number one in the list of the tallest buildings in Thailand from 2016 until 2018 and lost its place in 2019 by the Mangnolias Waterfront Residence building. But never the less the building is very unique and special in his architecture and the in- and outdoor observation deck at the roof top where the view is unbreathtaken and worth to visit. Some of these backround information about the building are sourced from the Mahanakhon Website and my visit.
But what is the King Power Mahanakhon building? Well it is a mixed use facility with very modern and exclusive condominiums (The Ritz-Carlton Residence), a duty free shopping mall, soon a very unique and stylish Hotel ( The Orient Express MahaNakhon is announced to open soon) and a fine Sky Restaurant & Bar and 360° in- and outdoor observation deck. Let’s focus my blog post on my experience with the Skywalk observation deck and the Restaurant & Bar.
The Skywalk with its amazing Bangkok cityscape view
Buying a ticket for the Skywalk is quiet easy and possible at the counter in the Lobby of the building but also some websites offer too but for visit the Restaurant & Bar you need to make a booking via the website (here the link for reservation). It starts with a spectacular elevator ride with 360 degree movie animation before entering at the 75th Level. Everything looks like little playtoys from above and the 360 degree indoor and outdoor panoramic view is incredible. This Skywalk is breath taking and for every Thailandtraveller a must action in Bangkok. For all brave, there is the glass tray to walk on with an unrestricted view to the ground.
My Rooftop Bar and Restaurant experience
When we visited the Skywalk the first time unfortunatly the Bar and Restaurant was not in place so we came 3 months later to check out the chef’s what they are possible to create. The Restaurants provides a modern stylish and cozy interior and a spectacular skyline view from every table. We decided to take a seat at the window to have an unrestricted view outside in direction to the lebua state tower. A look at the menu card revealed a clear selection of starters, main courses and desserts. The drinks menu contained an extensive and internationally customary selection of drinks and cocktails, or mocktails. So far no big suprise. The food and drinks are very delicious and in addition with the incredible cityscape view it is a highlighted experience.
The duty free shopping mall for travellers
The duty free shop provides for international travellers a wide variety of luxury products which are exempted from import tax and value added tax. To shop in the duty free area, an international flight from or to Thailand and a passport is required. The retail section where a variety of souvenir items and exclusive merchandise are available on the 4th floor.
