3. Siriraj Medical Museum

Unlike the kid-friendliness of Dream World, this one’s a little grislier. This museum of death showcases dead bodies and babies – a hair-raising experience which may cause you to lose a few nights of sleep. Study fetuses and body parts of adults preserved in formaldehyde-filled jars in the Congdon Anatomical Museum on the third floor. There are also six other sections, including one which stores the dead bodies of serial murderers. You have been warned.

4. Pattaya Bungy

This is probably one of the most nerve-wracking Bangkok adventures you have to try! Bungee jump off from Thailand’s highest tower (it stands at 60 metres high) either with your legs tied together or be a human slingshot at 90 metres. Insurance has been included for both in packages which go up to ฿4200.

5. Flyboard Pattaya

Flyboarding is another extreme water sport that literally takes you to new heights. This physically demanding sport requires you to have a strong core, but above all, guts to balance on a board high up.
