Bangkok Forensic Museum at Siriraj Hospital

Bangkok Forensic Museum at Siriraj Hospital

Bangkok Forensic Museum [toc] Bangkok Forensic Museum is not on people's top 10 list of things to see in Bangkok, at least not on a first trip, but it seems to rank high on people's 'Off the beaten track travel guide'.

Cielo Sky Bar Bangkok on Sukhumvit

Cielo Sky Bar [toc] Cielo Sky Bar is another fantastic high spot located at the intersection of Rama IV and Sukhumvit road in Bangkok.
