New Roi-Et tower hits high note on Isaan skyline

Recommended Posts

Perhaps they'll have a multi level soapy massage operation on all the floors between the ground level retail and the top floor observation desk???

I didn't realize, the name and height of the planned tower is related to the name of the city/province itself...

 

Quote

The name of the province literally means 'one hundred and one' (Thai: ร้อยเอ็ด; RTGSroi et ). Correctly, the number should be "eleven" (Thai: สิบเอ็ด; RTGSsip et ), as the province was named after its eleven ancient gates built for its eleven vassal states. In ancient times, the number "eleven" was written "๑๐๑" (101) and the provincial name was written accordingly. Later, people took "๑๐๑" to mean 'one hundred and one' and have since then called it "Roi Et".[4]

I can't imagine tourists flying into Roi Et airport and then going up the tower to see a bland town from upon high.

The second White Elephant of Roi Et.

The brown envelopes win again.

If it could play music from those pipes—well maybe they’d have something...
