The State Tower (formerly Royal Charoen Krung Tower , Thai : ตึก ส เต ท ทาวเวอร์ ) is a skyscraper in Bangkok and has been the fifth tallest building in Thailand since 2012 .


The Thai architect Prof. Rangsan Torsuwan designed the building in the 1990s and put a golden dome with a viewing platform at the top of the high-rise. The dome has a height of 30 meters.

The building areas are mainly used for apartments, offices and sales rooms. The 5-star Hotel Lebua is also located in the State Tower . The 40-story high atrium inside the building and an open-air restaurant on the roof with a view of the city create a special atmosphere .

When it was completed, the State Tower was the second tallest building in Bangkok and in all of Thailand after Baiyoke Tower 2 ; but today only the fifth highest in the city.


The skyscraper is located between Thanon Silom ( Silom Street ), one of Bangkok's main thoroughfares in the Bang Rak business district , and the Mae Nam Chao Phraya ( Chao Phraya River ).
