King Power Mahanakhon has just unveiled the Mahanakhon SkyWalk - Thailand’s highest 360-degree observation deck and rooftop bar at 314 metres high - offering spectacular panoramic views of the city from Thailand’s tallest building.

The new premium attraction, which is now open to the public, is on the 74th, 75th and 78th floor of the King Power Mahanakhon Buildin and features one of the world’s largest glass tray floors, Thailand’s highest Rooftop Bar, and Thailand’s fastest video-themed elevators — which allow visitors to ascend to the 74th floor in just 50 seconds.

Located in the heart of Bangkok’s central business district and directly connected to Chong Nonsi BTS station, the attraction is set to become a global landmark destination that transforms Thailand’s tourism scene into a truly international force.

“The launch of Mahanakhon SkyWalk sets a new milestone in King Power’s history. As a Thai company, we are extremely proud to create a new landmark in the heart of Bangkok that enhances Thailand’s tourism image as a world-class travel destination. The new attraction is the first of its kind in Thailand to offer a completely new experience and impressive perspective of Bangkok’s skyline,” says Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, chief executive of King Power Mahanakhon.

Mahanakhon SkyWalk is being promoted to both Thai and foreign visitors in order to stimulate the economy and long-term spending while sustainably enhancing its tourism and retail industries.
