There are many reasons why tourists are coming to Bangkok. With the rise of tourism, there is also a increase in constructions of retail buildings and accommodations such as family hotels in Bangkok in order to meet the demand for hotel rooms. It is not surprising that the capital city of Thailand is now home to a lot of abandoned buildings and many are rumored to be haunted. This opened up to new tourism hype in the metro which attracted more tourists especially those who are interested to explore haunted sites in the region.
In the past few years, the activity has gotten a lot of attention because of travel blogging. This prompted young travelers to follow suit and record their own videos. Bangkok also has an infamous haunted building known as the Ghost Tower. It has been the center of attention from those that are looking for creepy adventures.
It is one of the most visited hunted skyscrapers in Asia with a height of 185 meters. The Ghost Tower used to be the Sathorn Unique Tower when it was still less haunted and more alive. Around 75 per cent to its construction, the management stopped because of the financial crisis that occurred in 1997.
Since then, it has not been touched and is slowly disintegrating in the middle of the city. The building is quite tall that it leaves a giant skeleton in the midst of the metropolitan. There is a fence surrounding the building and hired securities are guarding it but tourists are still able to get inside and explore the building.
One visit at Youtube will reveal the amount of videos there are of people exploring the inside of the Ghost Tower. According to some travel bloggers who were able to get inside the building despite the security in place, they are bribing the guards in order to get access and explore.
While there are those attracted towards the creepy side of the city, there are also those who are in the city for pure fun. Many come and stay at family hotels in Bangkok to just enjoy the scenery and the tourist spots.
