To "Oasis-Bangkok",

Spectacular night picture of the Quanzhou giant TRIO.

Modest Request or suggestion to Oasis-Bangkok:
If the picture could be taken (by a drone) from exactly the same spot, but slightly higher elevation, (say 100 or 200 meters higher), the picture would be super-spectacular.

I´d say - the slower, the better elevator. I don´t care if I´ll travel on top of the building 2 or 10 minutes, but if I have to use some invisible ear plugs for 5 hours, after using the elevator, it really sucks

Still no news on when the observation deck will open? The building was completed last year, and I cant seem to find any videos that indicate the fastest elevator in the world or the observation deck are in service yet. Does anyone have any information on when the observation deck on this tower will open? Thank you for any help!

Also slightly surprised that the building still does not seem to have a lighting system...
