Ghost Tower (Sathorn Unique Tower)


Sathorn Unique Tower is a failed building where there have been reports of suicides and ghosts... Ghost Tower is somewhere which is not in the usual Tourist Books for somewhere to visit if you are here.



I was excited, I had my camera and all the bits... but I did not feel comfortable -  I was alone and chickened out (again).



So these photographs are of the outside - visit Instagram for some photographs in the building.

Walking Routes in Bangkok - dolls and more




Stop 1: Witthayu Pier - a small pier for the river taxi on Wireless Road - a place to watch the boats speed up and down, or watch the sleeping?


Stop 2: L'Angollo Cafe - a great cafe on the corner of Wireless Road and Phetchauri Road, they have a great selections of coffee here 


Stop 3: Talad Neon Night Market - unfortunately during the day there is not a lot there apart from the row of tents 


Stop 4: Chinese Shrine - next to the Berkeley Hotel (Pratunam), a pleasure finding places like this


Stop 5: The alleyways were twisting and turning and there were more lanes here than what was on the map! 


Stop 6: Coffee Color Cafe -  a colourful cafe I passed after all those twists and turns - I popped in on the way back as well...


Stop 7: Bangkok Dolls was successfully reached - despite being guarded by a dog further up the road, a wonderful find if it interests you!!! 


Stop 8: Pratunam Market - a great market which just seems to get bigger when you are inside - prepared to be there a while - I was and most of the time was trying to get out!


Stop 10: ร้านลาบ ท่าเรือประตูน้ำ - a small restaurant slightly raised but next to the Khlong and Pratunam Pier - a great place for a bite to eat, certainly worth stopping here, outside but not crammed

Stop 11: Pratunam Pier and the river taxi is my way back to where I started, still use the river taxi as a great means to get around Bangkok

Walking Route One in Bangkok - Yaowarat.
Walking Route Two in Bangkok - Nang Leong.
Walking Route Three in Bangkok - Thonburi.

Walking Route in Bangkok - John Bush and more.

Bangpu Receation


Bangpu Recreation.com สถานตากอากาศบางปู is somewhere we came to because there was an enormous lot of traffic - after we had visited ธรรมกตัญญู (เสียนหลอไต้เทียนกง) - which must be done.



The Bangpu Recreation is at the end of a long pier. This specific pier however is very long and there are a great number of seagulls flying overhead.




At one end there are also people selling food for you to feed them.




Someone also created a love heart of sticks in the water for the seagulls to sit on.



Getting to the end of the pier there was a very large restaurant - which was extremely popular - and we walked to the very end and chose not to eat there and ate elsewhere - Mae Cuisine.
