Baiyoke Sky Hotel - Strike One.
Photograph - Photography
It was our last night in the Far East, my camera gear was all packed away ready for an early start to the airport in the morning.
We got back to our hotel room and this electrical storm had started. One window in our hotel room actually opened and it also faced the Baiyoke Hotel. I rapidly unpacked my camera gear and got the tripod set up, I then set the camera to Bulb mode and started to hit the remote shutter release.
I ended up with this shot of the Baiyoke Hotel being struck by lightning, now how is that for luck!
Baiyoke Tower II, located on 222 Ratchaprarop Road in the Ratchathewi district of Bangkok is Thailand's tallest building. It contains the Baiyoke Sky Hotel, the tallest hotel in Southeast Asia, and the fourth-tallest all-hotel structure in the world.
The building is 304 m (997 ft) tall, or 328 m (1,076 ft) tall with the antenna included. It has 85 floors, with a public observatory on the 77th floor, a bar called "Roof Top Bar & Music Lounge" on the 83rd floor, a 360-degree revolving roof deck on the 84th floor and the hotel offers 673 guest rooms. Construction on the building ended in 1997, with the antenna being added two years later. The Baiyoke Sky Hotel website itself lists the height without the antenna as 309 m (1,014 ft), but the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH), Emporis, and SkyscraperPage list it as 304 m (997 ft).
