Elephants have played a crucial part in Thai society for many centuries. So when somebody wanted to build a high rise in the shape of an elephant in the heart of Bangkok, it seemed like a very reasonable thing to do. In a city with more than 80 skyscrapers, for a high-rise building to get noticed, it has to be a little different.

With a height of 102 meters (335 feet) with 32 floors, the Elephant Tower is one of the most notable structures in Bangkok. Completed in 1997, this building has 7 different parts.

  • Tower A (Office)
  • Tower B (Office)
  • Tower C (Residential)
  • Top Floor (Luxurious residential suites)
  • Recreation Ground (Swimming Pool & Gardens)
  • Shopping Plaza, Bank & Post office
  • Parking Garage
It consists of three towers (A, B, and C) joined across the top by a horizontal band of residential suites. Two of the towers form the legs of the “elephant,” while the third forms its trunk.
