    Are you squeamish?

    Pay wave

    Keep going.

    Our next location is an optional stop. Its the notorious forensics museum, which is a no-holds-barred look at death, often in gory detail.

    Be it birth defects, bullet holes, stab wounds, train accidents, tsunamis, fires, or disease, you can get an up-close look at the science of dead bodies.

    Don't worry - there aren't corpses all over the place, but the photos are uncensored and you often get a look at skin, bones or skulls, as well as the weapons involved, like bullets or knives.

    There are some things you probably wouldn't see in a similar western museum, such as the mummified corpse of Thailand's most notorious serial killer/cannibal.

    There's even the actual stretch of fence that someone was impaled on after an unfortunate fall, as well as the accompanying photo and newspaper story.

    There are a few things to keep in mind though:
    First, most of the information is in Thai only, but there is an audio commentary device that you can rent.

    Second, entry to the museum costs 200 baht.

    And finally, the medical museums are CLOSED on Tuesday, so if today is Tuesday, you won't be able to go.

    Continue straight.

Chinatown is one of Bangkok's busiest, most interesting (and most neon-y) areas, and is known primarily for two things: gold shops and food. Since we're not here to buy gold, the food will have to do. We'll take a walk up one side of Yaowarat Road... More»
