I have been to Bangkok for so many times but that’s the first time I came to the tallest tower in Bangkok. If you would like to observe a certain view of the city, you definitely need to visit this place as it have more than 85 floors!! Not only the view from rooftop bar but much higher! Again big thank you for the sponsor from TRAZY for such an amazing view and buffet to enjoy in Baiyoke Sky Hotel
Before sharing more to all of you, I have been travelled with TRAZY for a few times already in my past few trips. Unlike normal travel agency but focus mainly on Korea and Thailand only. They understood how frustrated when foreign travellers have no idea where they should go especially in Korea and Thailand ! Hence the 2 ladies (who started the business) decided to provide the best deals and offers for travellers! If you were frustrated not speaking the same language? Don’t worry! Just give your plan to TRAZY and relax during the journey! Their booking website offers various activities which sure you can find everything you need! So let’s see what I have experienced with TRAZY on my final activity in Bangkok this time! 🙂
Baiyoke Sky Hotel is situated close to the nearest BTS station – Ratchaprarop. Since it is the tallest tower hence you can find lots of tourists at the ground floor. It might be better to arrive a bit early than peak hour. Unlike buffet in other hotels to go right straight to the restaurant, we have to pick up our ticket on a certain floor (apologize I forgot which floor it was) to redeem our ticket. Instead you have to buy your ticket at the ticket counter. So once we got our ticket, we took the elevator to the 78 floor for our buffet!
The tower actually have several different floors for dinner which are 75/F – Baiyoke floating market, 78/F Sky restaurant, the highest floor 81 – Bangkok balcony and crystal grill on the 82 floor. When we arrived on the 78/F Sky Restaurant, there’s a stair case where lead us to the upper floor. The restaurant aren’t the luxury buffet but more like a casual international buffet which offers variety of food. The restaurant are quite casual so you don’t have to worry too much of dress up like attending a 6 stars hotel however not to wear shorts and slippers! If you would like to have a window seat like us! remember to tell the staff when you make the reservation. The massive window allow us to enjoy the amazing night view of Bangkok city! How beautiful this was!
There are lots of seats and different themed local Thailand site backdrop on each corner, if you are too full at the mid of the dinner, suggest to go to those different themed backdrop for photos!
In terms of food, as mentioned above it is an international buffet which combines the eastern and western food to enjoy. There are lots of varieties that include grilled seafood not only limited crabs and shrimps but also steamed egg seafood. There are also assorted salad or Dong Yam soup to start with. If you are meat lovers, there are also Beef tenderloin steak and pork. Of course local Thai food won’t be miss! Let’s see what I have on my dishes and my recommendation below!
1/ Grilled Shrimp and Crab
A MUST to eat of the BIG grill shrimp! They offers at least 2 x shrimps and 1 x crab on a dish each time when I request. It was freshly grilled as per ordered.
2/ Steamed Egg Assorted Seafood
3/ Steamed mussels
There are a salad cart with various veggies and Tong Yam soup to start with!
1/ Chinese noodle – You can pick your flavor from the choices given.
2/ Japanese food – Sushi and Soba etc. The Sushi Counter below!
3/ Beef and Pork
They do offer fresh and assorted fruits and the mango rice which is my favorite!
In conclusion, if you are looking for a spectacular place for dinner with fabulous view of Bangkok and not expensive location, this place definitely would be one of your choice! It cost ONLY less than HK$182 for a dinner buffet and view!
