A walk through an abandoned brothel in Kanchanaburi that was nicknamed the “Prostitute Cemetery” with locals believing the site is haunted.
The concrete compound with a ‘fishbowl’ stage and dozens of small rooms opened in the mid-1960s before closing in 1986.
Local residents living nearby who remember ‘Brothel 35’ – nicknamed the ‘Prostitute Cemetary’ – say women were left to die if they were sick and forced into abortions when they inevitably fell pregnant.
Footage from inside the building taken on March 28 shows the main ‘fishbowl’ stage where women were displayed to visitors. They were then taken into small, 6.5ft x 6.5ft rooms where they lived and had sex with dozens of men a day.
The same mattresses used when the brothel was open are strewn across the corridors. Discarded clothes, cassette tapes, number badges and wigs are also still in some of the rooms.
It’s unclear why the brothel closed but it was never raided by police. Instead, the owners are believed to have left when business slowed down.

Second-Hand Jaguar Garage In Bangkok
This cool little car repair shop in the backstreets of Bangkok focuses entirely on refurbishing old Jaguars. There were some classic models and some newer ones too from the 1970s onwards.
The owner explained that he gets the old cars shipped from the UK, repairs them and sells them on again in Thailand, Singapore and Japan.
If you’ve ever tried to buy a second-hand Jaguar in Bangkok you’ll know what a big markup there is on prices compared with the UK, where they were originally made.
Expect to pay a minimum of 500,000 Baht for a refurbished Jaguar XJ8 in Thailand. These iconic 1980s and 1990s models can be picked up in good condition in the UK for under £1,000.
Buying a decent Jaguar in Bangkok isn’t the easiest task unless you’re after a new car. But the owner of this repair shop knew his stuff and the man you want to talk to if you are thinking of buying.
