Greg interviews Justin Dunne of ‘Bangkok Haunt,’ a tour company in Bangkok that focuses on Thai ghost stories and their relevant locations. Justin is an old friend of Greg’s and after trading a few stories of the old days, the guys get into their mutual love of the city of Bangkok but also their mutual fascination with Thai spirit houses. Justin explains that his interest in Thai people’s supernatural beliefs led to a study of Thai ghost stories especially as they relate to the city of Bangkok. Fans of the podcast will already know that ghost stories are a pillar of Thai culture and history, and all Thais are familiar with a pantheon of ghosts and their stories.
This led Justin to develop a tour of Bangkok that focuses on these ghost stories. Greg is a bit shocked to learn that the tour is 9 hours long, but Justin notes that it’s both physically and emotionally taxing, given the ‘dark’ nature of some of the stories. In other words, this is NOT a superficial exposure to Thai ghost culture; go big or go home appears to be the Bangkok Haunt motto.
The guys go into details on the breadth of the tour, which includes ghosts, spirits, and ‘dark history,’ or locations in Bangkok where tragedies have occurred. Although not for the faint of heart, anyone interested in a REAL introduction to a key part of Thai history and culture should check out Bangkok Haunt.
