Thanks for the comments everyone. Please share your own pix and knowledge of B1 & 2 here.

Yeah you should go up there Kiku, the location is a little inconvenient
but it's definetly worth it.

I like the view but always thought the entrance was bizarre - in a small, crowded soi hidde by cheap T-shirts. No signs or used not to be). NOT very suitable for such an expensive, amazing building.

What a great thread and a great pano Jo!

Baiyoke building is one of the buildings I really admire!

maybe its becos I first saw it way back in 1998 and was struck by its slimness and incredible height. I wasnt into skyscrapers then but I thought..hey this looks taller than Singapore's OUB! What is it?! I finally satisfied my curiosity by staying within its walls last year!

The revolving deck is definitely definitely worth a trip and even more beautiful at night, with the lights of the city like jewels

true..the bizarreness of its location, plonked right in the midst of chaos yet rising above the mayhem to touch the sky..this is one of the reasons why it fascinates me

Yeah same here, always found the entrance and location a little odd. Same with Baiyoke 1. I think it would have been a lot easier to fill the hotel with guests if it had been built at a different location and if the tower had a little more 'polished' appearance

They were working on the rotating observation deck when I was up there so it was standing still... I hope they can make it run a little smoother, not that it really matters to me but it would be good if they fixed it

They are tall, Baiyoke 1 is rather in a bad condition, baiyoke 2 is much better.
