Prepare to be amazed with the three-headed elephant statue on top of a huge pedestal located in Samut Prakan Province. The epic three-headed elephant statue is 250 tons, 29 metres high and 15 meter high. On the inside, you will be even more amazed with the various elemental representing the universe on each floor; first floor represents the underworld, second floor represents the earth and third floor represents the heaven.

Located around 40 kilometers to the west side of Bangkok, the Giant Dragon Tower is hard to miss. This is because it is a tall tower with a lingering dragon all the way to the top. The dragon is not moving, of course, don’t expect for a moving dragon, ladies and gents! The bright red tower is 17-storey high and rich with beautiful decorations of statued animals and dragons. It’s definitely a piece of art and worth checking out.
4. ‘Sathorn Unique’ Ghost Skyscraper
This trip is going to get darker and creepier here. Behold the Sathorn Unique aka the Ghost Skyscraper. This one-of-a-kind building is a 50-storey building that has been abandoned since 1997, mostly remembered by the locals as the economic crisis. From the looks of it, it does look like a haunted building, not just because of the fact that it is an abandoned building, but the design itself looks hauntingly mesmerizing.

The building is located at the end of Sathorn Road and by the river. It’s a cool sighting if you’re looking for a uniquely-designed skyscraper and if you’re the extreme type of traveller, who knows?
