Thailand’s capital is what it ought to be. It’s noisy and smelly, and all over the city are quirky places that keep tourists hooked. If you visit Bangkok on your next tour to Thailand, don’t forget to visit these quintessentially Bangkok places.
Just half an hour from Pathumwan Princess Hotel is Erawan Museum, one of the quirkiest places in Bangkok. At the entrance of the museum is a colossal statue of a three-headed elephant. The museum was established in 2004 as a medium to promote Thai culture.
Shrine of Goddess Tubtim
This is a temple dedicated to female fecundity. Goddess Tubtim, believed to be the goddess of fertility, is the deity worshipped here, and women who want to get pregnant come here with offerings. For tourists, the shrine provides numerous photo opportunities.
Bangkok Forensic Museum
There’s no other place quite like Bangkok Forensic Museum. Housed inside a hospital, the museum displays an assortment of dead human bodies and body parts. The museum evokes a morbid fascination, but it is not to everyone’s taste.
