I'm surprised it's not required to be completely lit up at night. That's quite a safety hazard. Some wayward helicopter or airplane could crash into it. Unlikely, sure. But a needless risk.

I would just like to thank Oasis Bangkok for those photos. You can appreciate the scale of the building much more from those shots.
