Abandoned Airplane Graveyard in Bangkok
Updated: Oct 22, 2018
Situated just a little north east from the city center of Bangkok lies a hidden gem - a graveyard filled with abandoned airplanes.
It was not difficult to find the place as it was right in the middle of other buildings and stationed next to a main road. When you get there, it may seem like the place is out off bounds to visitors as the gates to the compounds were locked up. We almost thought that we could not go through. But, after standing around the gates and trying to look inside, a man came up to us and we asked him if we could go inside. We knew from reading various reviews on the internet that they family who lived there charged a fixed 200 Baht per person to enter. Of course we tried to be coy and asked if 200 Baht for two people would be possible. But, it was firm no. It may seem like a ridiculous amount of money to get into a place that is supposedly abandoned but you won't regret it as the views inside were amazing.
Getting into the plane was a little difficult for me but perhaps easy for people who like climbing things. We found an open door on the right side of the plane and this was the easiest way to get in.
After going through the entrance, there was a ladder that we climbed to reach the second level of the plane. It was a little dark and cramp inside but it was quite easy to get here. Well it seems like the plane has been stripped of almost everything it once had and what was left were scraps.
This was the cockpit of the smaller plane. It was really cool to see that the chairs and the frames were still intact.
Another entrance into the plane but obviously its a little higher and harder to get through.
Having sunlight would have been better, unfortunately we reached when the sun was closed to setting.
There seems to be a family who stays here. We saw a few kids playing around, adults after having a shower and there were chickens walking around as well. I tried to ask the man who let us in if he stayed there but he told me he was the security guard. Well maybe he was really the security guard or maybe he was part of the family staying there, we really didnt' know
Anyways, if you do have 200 baht to spare, you will not have any regrets visiting this place!
