Bangkok has many things, which are loved by people. The sheer queerness of this place is one of them. This city has the fascinating sights, which can’t be found in any other city around the world. The description of the main sights of Bangkok is following :
Consisted of hundreds of phallic symbols, this weird shrine called as the Penis Shrine, Chao Mae Tuptim Shrine or Phallic Shrine, which is unknown by the large majority of locals and visitors of Bangkok, is situated behind the Swissotel Nai Lert Park Hotel at the distance of only a few minutes’ walk from the Phloenchit BTS Station of this place (Bangkok). Among the phallic symbols, some have their tallness of 5 to 6 feet. With offerings, some people of Thailand come to this shrine with the hope of boosting their fertility.
On Ramkhamhaeng Road in the Bang Kapi District of Bangkok only a short ride by taxi from the city center, this abandoned 747 airplane, which is rare to be seen in a city suburb, can be seen here.
Exotic Fish in the Basement of an Abandoned Shopping Mall
Abandoned around 15 years before, this old New World Shopping Mall has the basement filled with water attracting mosquitoes. To feed the eggs of the mosquitoes to fish, the people of the locality put some fish in it in an order to stop the breeding mosquitoes. At present, this basement has thousands of exotic fish & the building being very dangerous, one should enter it at one’s own risk.
Anybody must have rarely seen quite this type of museum anywhere else in the globe. With the best 2 museums, i.e. the Anatomical Museum & the Forensic Museum, Bangkok has really a series of five museums of different types. In the Forensic Medicine Museum, the visitors can see the mummified bodies of the murderers and rapists, the skeletons and organs of the accident and the victims of murder and an entire lot more. This place is easily accessed by boat to spend a great day.
For the people fond of visiting the weird, quirky, bizarre or just plain gruesome, a visit to Corrections Museum of Bangkok is likely to be included in the must see list of the visitors. This museum, which displays how prisoners were executed and tortured in the past days, is certainly not for the squeamish & at present, it is closed for renovations with no availability of its opening date.
The Robot Building
Situated on Sathorn Road between Surasak BTS stations and Chong Nonsi, the Robot Building, which is the HQ of UOB Bank, can be seen everyday on being seen from the condo of the people. This Prudential Building has a great shop of coffee nearby it on the ground floor named Café De Golfio.
Around Bangkok, you can see a few abandoned skyscrapers. Among them, Sathorn Unique is situated very close to the Saphan Taksin BTS station at the distance of the walk of about 10 minutes from the condo of the visitors. During the Asian Financial Crisis of 1997 to 99, this building was abandoned. The design of this building resembles the State Tower of nearby very much. The tourists can find Lebua Hotel, which gained its fame after being displayed in the scene of the rooftop in the film named The Hangover Part II.
Situated on Ratchadaphisek Road & Paholyothin Road in Bangkok, the Elephant Building, which is not content with the Robert Building, can be glanced from the distance of miles around and it is one of the most renowned buildings in this place.
