Located adjacent to the Romaneenart Park, this was the old Bangkok Remand Prison which was a maximum security prison. It is now closed for renovations with no reopening date. The exhibits are supposedly gruesome so we will be back when it reopens!

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
