Thailand’s Highest Rooftop and Observation Deck is Back
Bangkok, Thailand, June 12, 2020 / TRAVELINDEX / Mahanakhon SkyWalk, Thailand’s highest rooftop and observation deck at King Power Mahanakhon’s 78th floor has reopened its doors to the public.
Located within the iconic pixelated building in the heart of Sathorn, the attraction is ready to welcome visitors back to its panoramic indoor and outdoor viewing decks. With new social distancing measures under KING POWER CARE POWER, guests can expect a touchless and hygienic experience in all aspects of their visit—with a focus on four main pillars including the creation of a “Safety Place” for all visitors, a detailed “Screen & Scan” process, a consistent practice of “Social Distancing”, and the availability of “Safety Service and Payment” through cashless payment options. Open daily from 10.00hrs-20.00hrs, highlights of the attraction include one of the most photogenic spots in Bangkok–the thrilling glass floor which overlooks the entire city.
New visit protocols at King Power Mahanakhon include a visitor registration at the building entrance, a real-time dashboard to monitor the number of visitors, a temperature scan to ensure that visitors do not exceed a body temperature of 37.5 degrees Celsius, and a UV-scanned security screening process. Each elevator journey ensures social distancing between guests, while a limited number of people will be able to access the glass floor per time.
To accompany the scenic view, food and drinks are also available at the rooftop including a newly launched “Picnic in the Sky”. Available from 16.00hrs onwards, the beautiful set is served in a picnic basket and includes a House Smoked Chicken with Bacon Sandwich, an Herbed Mixed Green Salad with Lemon Ginger Vinaigrette, Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, a tangerine, and a delicious Brown Butter Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookie. Other food options include an all-day Bar Bites menu with a choice of Chicken Wings, Red Pepper Hummus, Mahanakhon Dips—a colourful vegetable platter, and Salmon Rillettes. As limited seats are available at the rooftop, Mahanakhon SkyWalk guests are highly encouraged to book their rooftop seating in advance by calling 02-677-8722.
Entry to Mahanakhon SkyWalk starts at THB 880 per one adult entry while admission for junior (for children ages 3-12) and seniors (over the age of 60) start at THB 250 per person. Guests are highly encouraged to purchase their tickets in advance online. To celebrate the reopening, a special promotion of “Come 4, Pay 3”* is also available at the ticketing counter, located at the lobby of King Power Mahanakhon.
