We finally got around to doing what has got to be one of the coolest things to do in Bangkok: climbing the Sathorn Unique – aka the Ghost Tower. Last year the abandoned building was supposedly closed after a Swedish man took his own life inside, however we heard the guards at the bottom were letting people in for a small fee, and so we went.
Our friends Jenny and Tew met us nearby and we headed into the creepy building. Our plan was to explore the place, shoot some photos and videos, and make it to the roof of the 49 story shell-of-a-building without anyone falling over the side or tumbling into an elevator shaft.
The Sathorn Unique was built during the boom of the 90s as a towering 659 unit residential building with retail on the lower floors. The project, along with many others like it went bust during the 1997 Asian financial crisis, but unlike other developments, the money never returned and the building was left to decay. Today, locals believe the place is haunted.
