Walk on the wild side – the new Mahanakhon SkyWalk | The Thaiger

YIKES!

Is there anything more terrifying than a ride in a border visa-run passenger van? We think we’ve found it.

The Mahanakhon SkyWalk – Thailand’s highest observation deck and rooftop bar at 314 metres high – offers spectacular panoramic views of Bangkok from Thailand’s tallest building. But that’s not the really scary bit.

The new premium attraction, now open to the public, is on the 74th, 75th and 78th floor of the King Power Mahanakhon Building, features one of the world’s largest glass tray floors. So there’s nothing between you and the streets below except several inches of glass!

The new attractions also features Thailand’s highest Rooftop Bar, and Thailand’s fastest video-themed elevators which ascend to the 74th floor in just 50 seconds.

The Mahanakhon building is in the heart of Bangkok’s central business district and directly connected to Chong Nonsi BTS station.

A man, who had left home a month ago to live by the roadside with a stray dog in Pathum Thani, has been found dead. The dog was watching over the body when others discovered the deceased man. Pathum Thani is just north of Bangkok.

The deceased has been identified as 45 year old Surachai Khamsue. He was found lying by the side of a road in Moo 2 village in Tambon Klong Nueng, Klong Luang district, beside the old and un-roadworthy pickup that he had been using as a home.

Her brother liked to drink alcohol, she added. The body was sent for autopsy at Thammasat University hospital.
