You are going to visit Bangkok? Then don't miss Mahanakhon SkyWalk, the new attraction that allows visitors to walk on a glass walkway suspended in the void, located 314 meters high. It is located at the top of King Power Mahanakhon, Thailand's tallest skyscraper, and certainly not for those with a fear of heights.

What is the Mahanakhon SkyWalk?

It is a rooftop terrace located on top of Thailand's tallest building, the King Power Mahanakhon, at a height of 314 meters. It goes without saying that the view of the city of Bangkok from here is spectacular.



The highlight of the attraction is the large glass walkway, which protrudes from the edge of the building, one of the largest glass observation decks in the world. To get on, you need to wear canvas protectors (such as those used in airports) over your shoes.

The King Power Mahanakhon skyscraper

King Power Mahanakhon was completed in 2016 and cost nearly a billion dollars. Thanks to its height it has earned the title of "tallest building in Thailand", bypassing the old keeper, Baiyoke Tower II, a 304-meter hotel.

The skyscraper has 78 floors and has different uses: floors from 1 to 18 are dedicated to a hotel, floors 23 to 73 are reserved for the Ritz-Carlton residences, on the 73rd floor there are the penthouses of the Sky Residences, while Levels 74 to 78 are for the observatory / bar.

Thai duty-free giant, King Power, has bought much of Mahanakhon's goods, and it should come as no surprise that you'll have to walk through a large King Power duty-free shopping area before you leave. If you have a plane ticket, you can actually enjoy excellent discounts.
