Samut Prakan Observation Tower or Paknam Observation Tower will be 179.55 meter high. The tower will be a new tourist attraction for both Samut Prakan and Bangkok.
The tower will house a museum, a library and there will be educational facilities for children. The 500 million baht tower will be surrounded by a park. There will be a museum about Samut Prakan and a discovery museum for children.
At the top there will be a viewing platform and a restaurant with great views of both the Gulf of Thailand and Bangkok. It is located close to Samut Prakan City Hall and naturally there will be views of the Chao Phraya River.
The BTS Sukhumvit Line extension from Bearing to Samut Prakan is currently under construction. In a few years time you will be able to arrive by Skytrain when visiting this new tourist attraction.
The project is scheduled for completion at the end of 2015.
