Thailand’s tallest building MahaNakhon shines in Bangkok sky with dramatic light show (PHOTOS)

MahaNakhon celebrated its completion and title as Thailand’s tallest building last night by lighting up Bangkok’s business area with a majestic light show in the rush hour of Monday night.

MahaNakhon, located in Silom, stretches 315 meters into Bangkok’s sky. Labeling itself as a “luxury mixed-use tower,” its 77 floors hold such illustrious tenants as the Ritz-Carlton condominium, Bangkok EDITION Hotel, Dean & Deluca’s Thailand flagship store, VOGUE Lounge and internationally-recognized restaurants L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon and Morimoto. Their observation deck offers 360 degree scenic views of Bangkok, and will be open soon.

However, MahaNakhon may not have its tallest-tower status for long as the Rama IX Super Tower is willing to out-tall MahaNakhon with its 615 meter height. The Super Tower is expected to become the tallest tower in Southeast Asia when it’s completed in 2021.

Until then, here are the pretty lights from MahaNakhon.
