At the very end of Silom Road, on the corner of Charoenkrung and just a block away from the Chao Phraya River, stands the majestic State Tower. At 65 floors high, it is Bangkok’s second-tallest building. With its ultra-conspicuous "golden dome", the State Tower dwarfs several high-end properties nearby, namely the world-famous Shangri-La Hotel, the Peninsula Hotel, the Mandarin Oriental, and the Centre Pointe Serviced Apartments.
