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.

2. The Human Body Museum

Prepare to get the taste of body horror!

Don’t worry, it is not really a body horror, but it involves the human body nonetheless. Welcome to the Human Body Museum where you take biology to a whole new level. Ever wonder what is beneath our skin than what we usually learn in class? In this museum, there are two small rooms with 14 standing bodies and 130 spare parts that shows different stages of dissection, nervous system and arteries throughout the human body. It might be a great idea to not eat anything during this tour, just in case your stomach was not in the mood to watch dried up brain in a jar or something. #JustSaying ?

3. Giant Dragon Tower at Wat Samphran

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?

That’s about it. I’m sure there are a lot of unusual things and sites you can find here in Bangkok. This is literally a small number of it. Let me know what you think and if you have gone to one of these places. I would love to hear about it!
