King Power MahaNakhon (Thai: คิง เพาเวอร์ มหานคร), formerly known as MahaNakhon (มหานคร), is a mixed-use skyscraper in the Silom/Sathon central business district of Bangkok, Thailand. It was opened in December 2016. It features the unconventional appearance of a glass curtain walled square tower with a cuboid-surfaced spiral cut into the side of the building. Following transfer of the first residential units in April 2016, at 314.2 metres (1,031 ft) with 77 floors, it was recognized as the tallest building in Thailand on 4 May 2016 by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH). Featuring hotel, retail and residences, 200 units of The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Bangkok inside the building are priced between around $US1,100,000 to $US17,000,000, making it one of the most expensive condominiums in Bangkok.
The building was recognised as the tallest building in Thailand until the Magnolias Waterfront Residences at ICONSIAM broke the record in 2018 with the height of 317 metres.

  • Found this building on the internet whilst touring Bangkok. Had to check out the sky bar and view. Well it’s absolutely incredible and a must when visiting Bangkok. Views are unreal, infrastructure...  more »
  • Spotted the building from our hotel rooftop and wanted to see it up close... and it really lived up to our hopes. Well worth a look.  more »

  • Excellent. One of my favorite viewing platforms. I've tried 'the top floor' at lots of places around the world and this one is excellent. There is an observation deck with floor-ceiling windows and a fantastic view of the city. Upstairs 3 floors in a separate elevator is the viewing platform where you get spectacular 360 views of the city. Its open air with glass walls so the view is exceptional and unimpeded. There is also a sloped seating area and a bar so you can really enjoy yourself. Book in advance for sunset times. For the strong-stomached, you can walk out on the glass floor. It is safe, but terrifying! its 7 layers of glass and a clear view to the bottom. There are some safety rules such as no phones/cameras in this area, but a friend can take a photo from the side. The only downside is they when exiting they make you walk through 3 levels of duty free shopping. Guys - if I wanted to shop I'd go to the mall!
  • Amazing views across Bangkok. The layout of the top decks makes it so much easier to move around and see everything than many other towers around the world. The only thing I didn't like was having to navigate several floors of shops, as if trapped in duty free shops at an airport, to get back out of the building. Check the official site for tickets - found it cheaper than sites claiming to offer discounts. Email ticket is fine despite it saying that you need to print it.
