Bangkok’s most famous horrible museum


The Siriraj Medical Museum contains a collection of dangerous artifacts and displays of every conceivable kind. If you get a kick out of seeing skeletons, deformed people, and accident victims, this is the type of place you will want to visit while at the Big Mango. Since Siriraj is regarded as one of the best and most renowned hospitals in Bangkok (the Royal family has an entire floor reserved there), it is regarded as one of the best educational institutions for medical professors seeking to advance their knowledge.

In addition to whole corpses, body parts, and bones, there are embryos and fetuses of various sizes on display. The cross-section of a human head can make your stomach turn, but the section of the museum devoted to bones is fascinating to study. This section is extremely instructive, covering a vast array of topics, from specific bone types to in-depth explanations of how the injuries occurred. Bangkok’s museum is a one-of-a-kind attraction that you will remember for the rest of your life. The museum tour only takes thirty minutes and costs forty baht. However, if you have a weak stomach or don’t do well while viewing the numerous horrible ways in which a person’s life could end, you are advised not to enter the exhibit. Despite the macabre exhibits housed in the museum, entering Siriraj Hospital is almost identical to being a witness to a significant historical event that occurred in Bangkok. Even if you skip the excellent museum housed within the renowned hospital, the building itself is well worth a visit. The museum is located within the medical center, and all visitors are admitted free of charge. The museum has the potential to educate visitors, but only if they are able to overcome their aversion to confronting examples of medical abnormalities. The 2004 Boxing Day tsunami, also known as the Tsunami, and cadavers preserved in glass jars are examples of such circumstances. Bangkok’s most infamous macabre museum is an establishment that visitors to the city might not consider visiting.

Since May, Phuket has seen over 900,000 tourists, according to Thai immigration


Between May 1 and November 27, Thai immigration officials in Phuket kept track of about 900,000 tourists. During that time, a total of 934,164 tourists visited the island province, bringing the total number of tourists to 934,164. There are 914,746 tourists who are not from Thailand, but only 19,418 tourists are from Thailand. In the meantime, the Phuket Walking Street Sunday Market, which is also called “Laad Yai,” continues to get a lot of visitors every week. Somyos Patan, vice president of the Old Phuket Town Community, says that the market is one of the most important places for tourists to see in Phuket. He also says that tourists must go to the famous market in Phuket Old Town. Phuket’s Old Town is where the market is. In November, Russians made up the largest group of tourists in Phuket.

The month before, 55,097 people from Russia went to the island province. Russian tourists are filling up chartered flights to Phuket and Pattaya. Aeroflot has said that they will increase the number of direct flights to Phuket. This comes less than two weeks after Russian airlines made a successful return to the island. The main airline in Russia announced on November 12 that there would be 14 more flights a week between Russia and Phuket. The deputy governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) said a week ago that more than one million Russian tourists will visit Thailand in 2019. As of October 26, more than seven million people from outside Thailand had been there as tourists. The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) thinks that between 7 and 10 million tourists will visit the country by 2022. After the Covivirus pandemic, Phuket’s tourism business is still getting better. Last month, Indian tourists made up the second-largest group of visitors to Phuket, according to Phuket Immigration. In total, there were 26,525 of them. At 13,868, Australian tourists were the third most numerous group. There were 12,340 British tourists, making them the fourth largest group. Germany had 11,097 tourists from that country, which put it in fifth place. Thai tourism officials were completely taken aback by the recent influx of Russian tourists. Even though there is still fighting between Russia and Ukraine, the head of the Association of Thai Travel Agents says that Russian tourism has returned much faster than expected (ATTA).

Over 50,000 Russian tourists have visited Phuket in the past month


This past month, 55,097 Russian tourists visited the island province, constituting the region’s largest tourist group ever. Seats on chartered aircraft to Phuket and Pattaya are being filled by Russian tourists. Aeroflot has stated that they would increase the frequency of direct flights to Phuket. This announcement comes less than two weeks after the triumphal return of Russian airlines to the island. The flagship airline of Russia announced on November 12 that the number of weekly flights flying from Russia to Phuket would increase by 14. According to Phuket Immigration, Indian tourists formed the second-highest group of visitors to Phuket last month. They numbered 26,525 in total. At 13,868, the number of visitors from Australia was the third highest. At 12,340, the number of tourists from the United Kingdom was the fourth largest. Germany ranked fifth with 11,097 tourists from that country. Prior to the spread of the Covid-19 virus, China was Phuket’s most profitable tourist destination. Nanthasiri Ronnasiri, the director of the Phuket office of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), told The Phuket Express, “From the beginning of the year to the end of October, Phuket generated more than 119 billion baht. Even excluding the Chinese, this number indicates that Phuket’s tourism business has expanded by 80 percent.

The recent flood of Russian tourists in Thailand has completely surprised the country’s tourism authorities. According to the head of the Association of Thai Travel Agents, despite the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine, the Russian tourism sector has returned much more swiftly than anticipated (ATTA). During the month of December in particular, Koh Samui predicts an increase in the number of Russian tourists. Prior to the Covidian-19 outbreak and the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Koh Samui’s reliance on tourists from Russia was a key contributor to the economy of the island. A week ago, the deputy governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) predicted that the number of Russian tourists visiting Thailand in 2019 will exceed one million. The number of international tourists who visited Thailand had already surpassed seven million as of October 26. Thus, Thailand is on track to fulfill the Tourism Authority of Thailand’s (TAT) target range of seven to ten million visitors for 2022. In November, over 50,000 Russian tourists visited Phuket, indicating that this island is growing increasingly popular among Russian tourists.
