    There are many abandoned and/or derelict building projects in Thailand caused by the Asian Financial Crisis in the late 1990s.

    One of the many abandoned shopping malls has become famous since locals introduced fish into its floors. The post-apocalyptic look it gave the abandoned mall became such an issue that security and police were warned to block all entrances to curious investigators. However, with a little foreign charm (and perhaps a gift or two), my friend and colleague Kenny (further photography of his available if anyone wants to get in touch) managed to enter the building and take these pictures, reproduced here with his full permission.

    In this first image the sign says "No entry allowed" in Thai.

    Well that"s different :):thumb

    Reminds me of Living World in Armley, Leeds. They had Koi in the same type of set up, just not encompassing an escalator system :)

    Ahhhhh I know this site :)... it's a very short walk from the famous Khao San Road - where most backpackers stay in Bangkok. I believe that it was a well established custom for locals to add Koi fish to the floodwaters within this site as a blessing for good karma or something. Certainly there was at one point (and probably still is) an enterprising market stall in the soi leading this site selling Koi fish for the purpose.

    Agree with OP, the potential for exploration in Bangkok is huge - lots of half-built huge skyscrapers can be had,

    Thanks for the feedback, more photos follow. Yes, the Mall is located near Khao San Rd. I have plans to visit more sites in Thailand so I hope I will be offering more reports very soon, with photos taken by myself.

    I read the posting rules carefully and could see no warnings against links. If I have missed it I apologise and of course my link can be removed if necessary. The freienbd who took the pictures of this mall is at http://kingkenny7.wix.com/kingphotography
