A must-see sight to add to your Bangkok bucket list, the Mahanakhon Skywalk is Thailand's tallest observation deck and viewing platform. Offering 360 degree panoramic views from both an inside and outdoor viewing area, there can be no better reason to visit Mahanakhon Skywalk than just to catch the panoramic views of the cityscape.
Experience breathtaking 360-degree panoramic views of Bangkok from the luxury indoor viewing hall, "The Observatory," which is located on levels 74 and 75, by boarding one of the fastest video-themed elevators in the world. Upgrade your experience to the 78th floor to reach the 310 meter high outdoor viewing deck on level 78 via a hydraulic glass lift, elevating the Mahanakhon Observatory experience. One’s visit to the Mahanakhon Skywalk remains incomplete without a stroll on Bangkok’s Glass Tray, or the glass-bottomed viewing platform with its resplendent views of the lit up city sprawling underneath one’s feet. This level also features ‘Peak’, or the outdoor observation deck located at a height of 314 meters off the ground.
When you visit Mahanakhon Skywalk, do not forget to take a spin on the SkyRides, Mahanakhon’s newest experiences. The fun VR journey takes one through a scenario of one’s choice- CityFlier or Mountain- where one must fly through and avoid any obstacles that come their way.

Best Time To Visit: No matter when you visit Mahanakhon Skywalk, your stay here is bound to be amazing. Although the official Mahanakhon Skywalk timing is between 10.00 AM and 09.00 PM, sunsets and the dusk hours are generally considered the best time to visit Mahanakhon Skywalk. From a height of 314 meters above the ground, sunsets appear twice as magical from this vantage and the sprankling city at night looks equally stunning from the platform. However, if avoiding crowds is a part of your agenda, there are a few things to keep in mind when you plan to visit Mahanakhon Skywalk.
Weekday vs Weekend: Quite predictably, weekends at Mahanakhon Skywalk remain more crowded than weekdays. Since the Skywalk remains open throughout the week, planning one’s visit on the weekends would be an ideal choice. You will also meet the least crowd if you visit Mahanakhon Skywalk just after the opening hours on weekdays.Peak Season vs Low Season: Bangkok’s peak tourist season is during the winter months, which are between November and March. These months meet the most tourist footfall in a year. The summer months, which are between April and October, generally remain less crowded. However, being an indoor attraction, the heat does not become a big bother when you visit Mahanakhon Skywalk. Low seasons are thus an ideal time to visit if you’re looking to avoid the tourist rush.
