Bangkok City Wide Building Boom never ceases to amaze me, each time I visit there are new skyscrapers reaching for the clouds. Above is River City shopping mall beside the Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel on the Chao Phraya River.
Sathorn Nakorn Tower
A modern Salom office building located at 100 Naradhiwas Rajanagarindra Rd., Bang Rak, Bangkok 10500.
Built in 2001, it is the largest building in South-east Asia, on the roof is Sirocco, one of the best roof top bars in the world. I often stay close by at Centre Point hotel, in fact I took this photo from my hotel window. Use this link for an excellent room rate. However if you prefer to stay in this magnificent tower book into the upmarket Lebua hotel through this link.
Sirocco at the top of the State Tower
In my opinion this is the World’s best sky bar.
The hotel is connected to the shopping mall and only a 5 minute walk to the sky train and river ferries. Use this link for an excellent room rate.
From Nana station
A new tower is under construction on the left and the vacant block is screaming out for development.
Beside Nana station
As in many countries buildings beside the railways stations tend to bring the highest rent for obvious reasons.
Beside Ploenchit station
Not sure of this buildings name however I will find out on my next visit.

Terminal 21 Asoke
Located next to the BTS Skytrain and MRT underground rail networks.
This well known hotel in Soi 22 has 2000 rooms and is being totally renovated. It opened in 2017 as an addition to the Marriott chain.
The Baiyoke tower is 85 stories and is the tallest building in Bangkok, it includes the Baiyoke Sky Hotel, the tallest hotel in Southeast Asia and the seventh-tallest all-hotel structure in the world.
MahaNakhon is a luxury mixed-use skyscraper currently under construction in the Silom/Sathon central business area of Bangkok. Designed to fit into the Thai landscape with a unique pixelated facade, it will have the unconventional appearance of a glass curtain walled square tower with a cuboid-surfaced spiral cut into the side of the building. Upon its estimated completion in 2015, it will become the tallest building in Bangkok at 314 metres (1,030 ft), with 77 floors. Featuring hotel, retail and residences, 200 units of The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Bangkok inside the building are priced between around US$1,100,000 to US$17,000,000, making it one of the most expensive condominiums in Bangkok.

Another wonderful design the hotel is expected to open late 2016. Central Embassy will be hoping they will bring potential customers as their traffic since opening has been disappointing.

Resting after a busy shopping day
Since writing this blog I have found a lower price hotel option. Now when I’m in Bangkok I like to stay in Sukhumvit Soi 11, here is an excellent budget hotel, if you USE THIS LINK you will get a great rate of around B1100 per night, or $30 USD.
The best Bangkok budget hotel I have ever stayed in.
