King Power Mahanakhon Tower – Bangkok’s Highest Glass Skywalk Review
We recognized King Power Mahanakhon Tower because of its architecture before we knew what was inside. We referred to it as the “Lego Tower” every time we went past.
The structure, which is situated in the bustling downtown region between Sathon and Silom, has become a distinctive feature of Bangkok’s skyline.
There’s good news for all you adrenaline junkies out there! The King Power Mahanakhon Glass Skywalk, Thailand’s tallest indoor and outdoor glass observation deck, awaits those who are daring enough to climb to the top! Plus, spend the evening at Thailand’s tallest rooftop bar, where you can enjoy a spectacular sunset view while sipping a beverage.
Do you dare to stand 310 meters above the earth on a glass platform?

About King Power Mahanakhon Glass Skywalk
‘Mahanakhon’ means ‘great metropolis,’ and it is called after Bangkok’s full name.
The King Power Mahanakhon Building, a pixel-shaped architectural monument, was designed to express the ambition and enthusiasm of one of the world’s most dynamic cities, much like its name!
In addition to its aesthetics, King Power Mahanakhon is home to Bangkok’s tallest glass skywalk. It is a must-see for those of you who want to challenge yourself and conquer your fear of heights. We overcome my apprehension and visited the skywalk to write this evaluation for you.

Tips on How to Get There
Address: 114 Narathiwas Road, Silom, Bangrak, Bangkok.
The most convenient way to go King Power Mahanakhon is via Chong NonSi Station (Silom Line). Exit no.3 leads straight to the entrance of the building.
A trip to the skywalk is not inexpensive. A standard ticket costs BHT 880. (about EUR 24, USD 27).
We suggest making a reservation in advance to ensure that you can come at your preferred time frame.
Concessions are available for children aged three to twelve (children under the age of three enter for free) and seniors.
The skywalk is available every day from 10 a.m. until 12 a.m. At 11 p.m.,
The final admittance is allowed. It’s usually busiest between 5 and 7 p.m. when the sunsets.
On a Monday at noon, it was not very packed.
What to See on Each Floor
1st Floor: Mahanakhon Lobby
When you enter the building, the first thing you notice is a magnificent lobby.
You may buy your tickets or show your e-vouchers here. Once you’ve obtained your tickets, go down a hallway of digital walls to the elevator boarding area.
Tips: Before entering the elevator, there is a security check. Please keep in mind that food and beverages are not permitted. We had no idea about this, and they forced me to throw away my water bottle. It is comparable to airport security. It would be ideal if this was made clearer at the ticket desk. Furthermore, the website states that alcohol is not permitted, but we didn’t see anything regarding water.
Step inside one of Thailand’s fastest elevators, which will whisk you up to the 74th level in just 50 seconds! On your way up to the interior observation deck, enjoy a video-themed digital experience.
74th Floor: Indoor Observation Area
When you reach the 74th story, you will enter an interior observation deck from where you will get a 360-degree view of Bangkok and beyond! Don’t let the height get the best of you when the whole city is just under your feet!
The 74th level has an interior observation deck with 360-degree views of Bangkok. It provides you a taste of what’s in store for you upstairs. As we strolled about, we came upon an installation by American artist David Kracov. Hundreds of butterflies make up “The Gift of Life”
Each one represents a memory, an event, or a relationship that makes life worthwhile.
This concept struck me as really lovely. Learn more about Bangkok’s landmarks by engaging in an Interactive Augmented Reality experience on smartphones and dynamic interactive touch screens.
This level provides interactive views of the city. Unfortunately, we only learned about this after our visit: tourists may learn more about Bangkok’s important historic sites through augmented reality. These events, in our view, might be publicized more – maybe some signage would assist.
In addition, how about purchasing souvenir postcards and penning a note to your loved ones?
Simply throw them into Thailand’s tallest mailbox, which is located next to the postcard vending machine and is a reproduction of Thailand’s very first mailbox!
Tip: You can’t go back down to the 74th level after you take the glass elevator up to the 78th floor, so enjoy the interior viewing area as much as you can before going up!
78th Floor: The Peak / Sky Deck & Rooftop Bar / Glass Tray
Chill-out space heading up to the building’s highest point. We took in the scenery and saw the posters on the glass tray.
Welcome to the building’s main level! The King Power Mahanakkhon Skywalk’s 78th floor provides front-row seats to a 360-degree outdoor panoramic view of Bangkok. Take in the amazing view that unfolds before your own eyes from a breathtaking 310 meters above ground level, and enjoy the greatest skywalk in Bangkok in one of the highest buildings!
From the glittering golden roofs of Wat Pho and the Grand Palace to the lush trees at Bangkrachao (the Green Lungs of Bangkok) along the Chao Phraya River, take in the sight from the Sky Deck.
On a clear day, you can see all of Bangkok’s top tourist attractions for kilometers around, all the way to the Gulf of Thailand.
Sky Deck & Rooftop Bar 360 view
It’s time to post your Instagram photos! Enjoy a romantic sunset moment with unique drinks and champagne from Thailand’s tallest rooftop bar while listening to live DJ music.
Restaurant on the observation deck
The highlight of each journey to King Power Mahanakhon! At a height of 310 meters from the 78th level, experience one of the world’s biggest glass trays! If you dare, take a picture of yourself standing or laying down on the glass tray!
Tips: Visitors are given cloth shoe coverings and bags if they need them. If you wish to use the glass tray, you must wear shoe coverings. There is a restaurant right at the entrance to the elevator — maybe this is why alcohol and food are not permitted…
You may have to wait in line to access the skywalk, depending on the time and how many people are up there. There are few seats where you may sit and put your shoe coverings on.
Bags must be left in the waiting room. Furthermore, you are not permitted to bring your phone with you. From the waiting room, your friends may photograph you. As we walked out on our own, we requested the employees to photograph me.
The glass tray is suspended 310 meters above the earth. Would you be brave enough to step on it?
In the strictest sense, we are not afraid of heights. However, we become afraid if we go up too near to a window in a tall structure. We also don’t normally go on skywalks. But we dared ourselves the day we went to Mahanakhon Tower
4th Floor: King Power Duty-Free & Retail
We took the elevator down and were directed to exit on the fourth level through the mall.
The building has four levels dedicated to shopping since King Power International Group is Thailand’s biggest duty-free retailer.
Take the elevator to the fourth story, where you will be met with a shopaholic’s paradise.
You may explore and purchase souvenirs ranging from beauty and skincare to Mahanakhon-exclusive goods.
Tip: discount vouchers are available from time to time at the duty-free store!
After Visiting King Power Mahanakhon Skywalk
King Power Mahanakhon is at the heart of transportation, so you can travel practically everywhere quickly. If you take the boat from Sathon Pier Ferry Crossing, you may go up to Khaosan Road and then down to Asiatique to see the famed Calypso Show!
Furthermore, you may take a cab in 15 minutes to Madame Tussauds Bangkok and Bangkok SEA LIFE Ocean World Bangkok!
