This list of tallest buildings in Thailand ranks skyscrapers in Thailand by height.

Environmental impact[edit]

The ground under Bangkok is sinking around three centimetres per year. Built on an alluvial plain of soft clay, the subsidence is exacerbated by excessive pumping of groundwater by industry and by the sheer weight of the massive buildings. According to Thailand's National Reform Council (NRC), without urgent action Bangkok could be under water by 2030 due to the combination of groundwater extraction, the weight of city buildings, and rising sea levels.[1][2]
