Thailand has spectacularly inaugurated its highest tower, built in Bangkok.
With 314.2 metres and 77 floors, the MahaNakhon Tower is Thailand's tallest tower. It is located in the business district of Silom, in the city of Bangkok. It is even a little higher than the Eiffel Tower (which measures 300 metres). Very impressive!
A place of choice
Even if it is located in a business district, it will not house offices or the city’s companies. Instead, it will be a hotel and a luxury residence for people with means. Convenient, considering its location, for the busy people of the city, or people on a business trip for a few days.
Launching with great pomp
For its inauguration on Monday, August 29, 2016, its real estate developer wanted it to be grand affair... A gigantic set of sound systems and lights of all colors were installed on the building, to the spectators’ delight. What a way to have everyone know and remember that this is the tallest tower in Bangkok.
A record that will soon be beaten
But the MahaNakhon Tower will not remain the largest tower in the city for long, since it should be dethroned in 2019 by the Super Tower, which should measure 615 metres in height.
