  • It is a building of offices, condos, events venue featuring elephant shaped. Walk from MRTPhahonYotin railway station. But quite a walk. Tend to get through is so small, very conservative in building flashy entrance, but there is parking around. Must go as a tourist destination is not. Watching from afar, alone, is enough.

  • A very unusual building, really reminiscent of the national Thai animal-an elephant! In my opinion, this House-elephant looks so awkward and ridiculous (apparently not in vain, he still received the award for the most dreaded skyscraper)! The tower is not tall, 30 floors, which are residential apartments and offices.
