Sunken shopping mall New World Mall is a no less interesting place. The history of this mall is simply wondrous. When the shopping mall became abandoned, it turned into an ideal space for mosquitos. As the insects started spreading, citizens of Bangkok were annoyed by that and decided to breed fish in the sunken mall. Officially it is prohibited to visit that place, but again nothing can really stop determined travellers. Besides sunken areas with fish, visitors will see plants that grow among concrete parts. It is also possible to walk on immovable escalators and make unique and memorable photos.

The entrance to the museum is free, and it is possible to spend hours walking among rows of exhibits, making many memorable photos with interesting vehicles and literally touching history.

It is up to you what skyscraper to choose and turn it into an unusual observation deck. One of the most popular skyscrapers for roof exploration, Lebua At State Tower, is located close to the abovementioned Sathorn Unique. Top floors of that building are abandoned and easily accessible using a fire ladder.

During such a water ride travellers will be able to see interesting living quarters, watch ordinary life of residents and see numerous sights that are hidden from the majority of tourists.
