You can enjoy great panoramic city views of Bangkok from Bayoke II Observation Deck, 84th floor. It’s the second tallest building of the city, after Mahanakon Tower which was build recently. The price is 350 baht per person. It’s a 10-15 minutes walk from CentralWorld.
I choose a sunny day to go there. However, if you plan to go there to take professional pictures, you have to be there from 4pm to 5pm . The rest of the time the revolving floor is moving which could make you picture less sharp, even if you shoot at a high speed. This makes of course impossible any long pose picture at night time… I’ll need to find another roof to take panoramic night pictures.
Most of the pictures feature Rachaprasong, Siam, Ploenchit, and Sukhumvit.

From a modest fishing village, Hua Hin became a famous beach resort thanks to the railway which was opened in 1911.
