A new observation deck has opened on the 71st and 74th floors of the Mahanakorn Building, Bangkok’s highest building, which houses famous boutiques and hotels.
・The observation deck is 310 meters high and is located outdoors.
・You can take a picture as if you are floating in the air.
・The view of Bangkok is not through glass.
An outdoor observatory as high as the Tokyo Tower, that’s amazing! I actually went to the observatory, and I was pleasantly surprised by the sense of openness.

The much talked about Mahanacon Building
The Mahanakorn Building is directly connected to Chong Nonsi BTS station. It’s not too far from Siam, the center of Bangkok, making it convenient for sightseeing.
But still, it’s a uniquely shaped building!
To the ticket counter

The price is reduced to 765 baht ($26.01) from November 16, 2018 to the end of January 2019 to celebrate the opening.
By the way, we used a reservation service called kkday to go there.(Reference: Bangkok’s new attraction! Mahanakorn Skywalk Observation Deck Entrance Ticket)
There’s a page in Japanese and it’s easy to make a reservation.
Elevator with a thrilling feeling
We proceed to the elevator platform. So futuristic, so cool!
By the way, Mahanacon does not allow you to bring in drinks or food. Before getting on the elevator, there was a luggage check.
Our turn came, so we finally proceeded to the elevator.
The moment I stepped into the elevator, I was astonished to see images projected all over the elevator!
This video is very beautiful, so if you’re going to be there, be sure to take a good look at it.
Arriving at the 71st floor observation deck
The elevator will go all the way up to the 71st floor, and you will change once on the 71st floor.
Arrive at the Skywalk 74th Floor Observation Deck
When I got off the elevator, I was greeted by the cityscape of Bangkok.
We were there just in time for dusk, so the sun was setting and the sky was tinted pink. Beautiful…!
The sky was a little hazy that day, but I thought it would look even more beautiful when the air was clearer.
But still, the outdoor observatory is very pleasant.
The sunset is also romantic
I was happy to be able to watch the sun go down more and more.
Gradually, the glittering lights of Bangkok become clearer and clearer.
Take photos in the glittering night scene
If you take a picture with a night view in the background, it will look as if you have jumped into the sparkling night view.
It’s like you’re floating in the air! Taking photos above the nightscape
The highlight of this observatory is the glass-walled zone. When you take a picture on the glass, it looks like you’re floating in midair!
I love it because it makes me feel like I’m sitting on top of the glittering night view.
The only problem with this glass zone is that you have to wear a cover over your shoes to prevent scratching the glass, and you can’t bring your camera into the zone.
There are a lot of rules and regulations, and when we were there, there were a lot of Chinese groups, so it was a bit chaotic (lol).
It was a bit chaotic when we were there. If you’re planning to visit, please make sure you have plenty of time to spare.
Sipping fruit juice and relaxing with the night view
There is also a bar at the Skywalk Observation Deck. You can order fruit juices and cocktails.
You can order a pineapple juice and take a break to relax and enjoy the night view.
I was sipping juice with him and watching the night view.
I am happy to have a romantic time with the night view.
Very satisfied with Mahanacon, a precious experience
I was starting to get hungry by now, so I went down to the ground level. There was also a souvenir shop just off the elevator.
It was quite crowded during the evening hours when we were there, but even so, the glass zone and outdoor observatory were things that you can’t easily experience in Japan. We were very satisfied!
This facility has just opened, and I’m sure things will change in the future.
If you’re planning to go, I recommend that you make sure you have plenty of time and energy!
