Prominent Thai architect Rangan Torsuwan had epic dreams for Sathorn Unique at Soi Yan Nawa but in 1993 was arrested for allegedly plotting the murder of the President of the Supreme Court. Construction started but was never completed. It is extremely eerie, spooky graffiti-covered walls and sinister messages scrawled in every nook and cranny.

5. Koh Hingham is the cursed island of black pebbles
Koh Hingham is a small uninhabited island where the God of Tarutao, a Thai deity, is said to have placed a curse on the island. Any visitor who dares to take even a pebble off the island would be cursed forever. Each year the National Park office receives dozens of stones returned via mail, sent back by people who want to lift the curse.
