After reading an article about the shop I wanted to visit, the article talked about 7 floors which I assume were open in its heyday. However that’s long since passed and there’s now only 2 floors open with a barrier across the stairs on the...More

Depending on whether or not you are superstitious, there may be something to look into over the fact that the footage we took was corrupted after visiting (spooky!). The staff are rude, I genuinely don't understand why they have more than one or two staff...More

Trippy, wild, and a living museum. Well ... "living" is a stretch, but it was worth the trip. I tried to buy a bottle of perfume. Any guesses as to what they wanted to charge for the bottle in a trashed box. With all the...More

If you're interested in the unsettling then this is the place for you! You are greeted by the most hideously amazing mannequins and the place is just down right creepy. There were only 5 or so employees on the shop floors and even though they...More

It is a department store that is locked inside a time warp with everything on sale dating from the 1950s and 1960s (see pics). I was told off for photographing inside, which was warranted as there are 'no photo' signs everywhere even though I genuinely...More

Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around
