VERLATEN SPOOKTOREN IN BANGKOK – THAILAND Episode 3 || Takiany Travel Video

” The ghost tower of Bangkok” ” A skyscraper with more than 600 luxury apartmentsand 50 floors.

” ” That's what this building had to be.

” ” The construction started in 1990.

” ” And was finished for 80 % ” ” Yet it has never been finished.

” ” It was caused due a financial crisis in Asia, that started in 1997.

” ” Nowadays it's an abandoned building, ” ” But it's often visited by Urban Explorers fromaround the world.

” ” Why are they doing this? ” ” To see Bangkok from above ! ” ” Why do they name this place “The Ghost Tower” anyway? ” There are more then one reason for that.

” ” Many Asian people do believe that this tower is a haunted place, ” ” because it was built on top of a graveyard.

” ” They say, the people who were buried here are still wandering in and around the tower.

” ” Another group of peoplecome to this place to commit suicide.

” ” Not so long ago, a tourist hanged himself in one of the rooms.

” ” That's why there are more security guards now.

” ” There are also rumours about a murder.

” ” This tower was also used as a movie set fora Thai horror movie 'The Promise' ” ” We certainly wanted to visit this tower during our stay in Thailand.

” We're on our way to the tower now.

It might not be easy to get inside .

.

.

.

.

.

because someone was shot last week by the Thai mafia.

I was told that it was on the news.

So yeah, let's see if we can get inside.

We can try to bribe a guard.

But I'm not sure if that will work.

Anyway.

.

.

It's not going to be easy.

” It wasn't easy indeed.

” ” Normally, you're not allowed to enter this tower.

” ” The first time we went here .

.

.

, we had to leave immediately.

.

.

” ” So, let's try it a second time .

.

.

” ” Fortunately it isn't expensive to rent a taxi in Thailand ” ” We could see the tower from a long distance.

” ” It was one of the highest abandoned buildings I've seen in my entire life.

” I can see the tower already.

.

.

It's the highest abandoned building in Bangkok.

There's such a big sign that says 'No trespassing' .

So, we're not allowed to come here.

There's also another option, we can go into the abandoned building next to this one, and then make a big jump over the gap.

But, I think that would be crazy.

– Hello Can we visit the tower today? – No, you can't.

– Why not? Can't it really be today? Will the cops come? – Yes, they will.

– What time? About 5PM.

– Can we come back tomorrow? – Yes, that's possible.

– What time? Can we come around 01.

00 PM? – Yes, you can.

– And in the morning? – It's better to come later.

– Is it also possible to come between 10 and 11 A.

M ? or only 13 o'clock? – Yes, no problem.

” The guard told us, we weren't allowed to visit the tower today.

” ” He said it was better to come back tomorrow.

” ” Unfortunately, we couldn't climb the top.

.

.

but at least we tried.

” ” The stairs were locked and the guard didn't want to open them! ” So yeah, we talked for a long time with the guy.

.

.

We tried to bribe him .

.

.

.

.

.

but .

.

.

we are not allowed to go upstairs.

There isn't much allowed here .

.

.

unfortunately.

I wish I could see the view, you know.

.

.

I think these were escalators.

They're gone already.

This place was a graveyard in the past.

and .

.

.

Asian people do believe the ghosts are still wandering around here.

That's why they call this place 'The Ghost Tower.

' Many people come to this place to commit suicide .

.

.

They jump from the top floor and stuff .

.

.

That's basically one of the reasons they don't want us to go up.

Maybe I'll find a sneaky way up.

.

.

.

.

.

but I don't think it's funny to beland in jail here.

He said, we're not allow to go up .

.

.

He didn't said a thing about the basement.

.

.

At first sight, I think this used to be a parking garage .

.

.

But I could be wrong .

.

.

.

.

.

the building next to this one, actually looked like a parking garage.

Maybe this was for .

.

.

The heating , water , and stuff .

.

.

Besides.

.

.

This building .

.

.

had to be luxury apartments.

Due a financial crisis in Asia they had no other option to stop the project.

That's why they never finished the construction.

I think this were lift shafts.

There's a lot of trash here.

But, you have to know.

.

.

this place used to be an old graveyard.

They removed it to build this tower.

Who knows, what we can find under the tower.

We can go deeper.

It's full of water.

Ooh, it's just a cat ! It scared me.

Did it came out of the basement ?! So, what Oemmie just said .

.

.

She can speak Thai, she can communicate with the guard.

Again, a cat .

.

.

I think they live here.

I see .

.

.

they're going to drink there.

Now I get it ! It's 30 grades degree, so the cats come here to drink from the water.

That's the reason why there are so many of them.

Now I get it.

This is also creepy.

I bet there were a lot of Illegal parties in here.

What's this anyway? These are pillars, to decorate the outside.

If there weren't any fatal accidents, then we were able to climb the top and see whole Bangkok.

There are always some people who aren't careful.

They break in buildings , they fall , they break their legs .

.

.

or they commit suicided.

Let's head back to the main floor where Oemmie's waiting.

Hope we find another way up, but I don't think it will work.

The owner will come in the next half hour, so .

.

.

.

.

.

that's why the guard is afraid to letting us up.

If anything happens to us, they'll blame the guard for it.

” No matter how hard we tried to get upstairs .

.

.

” ” It wasn't possible.

” ” All the stairs were taken away, except one .

.

.

” ” But it was locked and guarded.

” ” The guard didn't want to open the door.

” ” because their boss could be any minute here.

” ” But I can show you some footage from 'The Promise'.

“Hello” ” You can expect this next week.

” ” We're going to an abandoned place, let's go ! ” – Sometimes, the mafia come here .

.

.

– Mafia? – Yes, this is .

.

.

– Sh*t .

.
