Yeah that's really bad damage. It can be rebuilt but the whole mall and that shorter oval building will need to be gutted. It looks like the Central World Hotel wasn't affected that much except again, by smoke.

It really was beautiful building probably one of Thailands best mall. I really don't get what their problem is? They are just ATTENTION SEEKERS i guess.....

The mall looks like a near total loss, a small high rise building attached to it appears badly damaged, but the taller hotel building escaped significant damage. Chances are, smoke got into its ventilation system and a lot of furnishings and linens may have to go.

The damage looks worse than I thought, totally gutted!! I don't know if that's the kind of thing that can be repaired, or if it will need to be totally demolished. But I hope the small highrise attached to it can be saved (I think there was a gym there), it's nice and has a nice wavey thing on the top that lights up at night. The glasswork around the other side of the building was gorgeous, what a pity! It's a scar that will take a long time to heal.

I think it's not because it's the king's land.
But most of buildings and companies burnt down were companies that has strong relationship with the government ( Democrat party) like Bangkok bank, CP group or oven CPN group.
