Attention all adventure seekers! Have you ever heard of the Sathorn Unique, Bangkok’s abandoned ghost tower? If not, you need to!

The Sathorn Unique is a half built skyscraper in the heart of Bangkok that’s infrastructure began construction in the 1990’s. 

The tower stopped being built in 1997 when the Asian Financial Crisis struck Thailand. Since then, nobody has put in the time or money required to finish building the tower. They say it would cost about 1.5 billion dollars to get the building finished.
