Exotissimo Travel Launches New Tour Revealing Bangkoks Darker History(March 20, 2013)
Bangkok, Thailand (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
Not for the faint hearted, Exotissimos Bizarre Bangkok tour gives an insight to the lesser publicized attractions of Thailands colorful capital. The tour visits two of Bangkoks most captivating and spine chilling museums. The tour departs via boat, passing the spectacular Wat Arun on the banks of the Chao Phraya en route to the Forensic Medicine Museum, where a large section is dedicated to informing about the 2004 tsunami.
Following a relaxing traditional Thai iced coffee, guests are then taken to the Bangkok Corrections Museum, depicting former grisly prison life in the capital. In the museum wax models show old torture methods, the corpse of Thailands most notorious serial killer has been preserved and put on show and the towers that contained prisoners are still standing around the perimeter.
On the final leg of the tour guests are taken on a short journey to a fertility shrine devoted to the Goddess Tuptim, where women pray and leave gifts for answered prayers. The tour then finishes in the heart of Bangkoks shopping district, showing another side to this fascinating Asian city.
As a keepsake of the tour, every guest also receives a free copy of the book Bizarre Thailand.
