A Brush With Death
If you've had your fill of gilded temples and air-conditioned malls and are looking for something altogether creepier, this museum fits the bill. Nicknamed the "Museum of Death", the attraction takes its cues from the darker side of Bangkok. Appendages, murder weapons and crime-scene evidence are all on display at the museum, which is dedicated to anatomy pathology and forensic science. The centrepiece is the preserved body of Si Ouey, a serial killer who murdered, then ate, more than 30 children in the 1950s before being executed.
