Opened in 1998 the Baiyoke Tower is Thailand's tallest building - 309 metres tall or about the height of 182 people standing one on top of the other - 304 m (997 ft) tall, or 328 m (1,076 ft) tall if its antenna is not included. It contains the Baiyoke Sky Hotel, the tallest hotel in Southeast Asia and the third-tallest all-hotel structure in the world. The underground piling goes 60 metres deep or about the height of a 22 storey building. It has 1,740 windowpanes, about the same number of windowpanes could be used for over 200 townhouses. The area inside equals circa 30 football fields. There are 2,060 steps from the bottom to the top. It will take you more than one hour to reach the top.
There is 85 floors, with a public observatory on the 77th floor, a bar called "Roof Top Bar & Music Lounge" on the 83rd floor, and a 360-degree revolving roof deck on the 84th floor. Construction on the building ended in 1997, with the antenna being added two years later, in 1999.
