Abandoned Franciscan Mission Ruins, Dalat, Vietnam

The stunning Franciscaines Misionnaires de Marie ruins caught my eye when I was driving around Dalat on the back of a motorbike. An urban explorer always spots an abandoned building from far away!

Abandoned War Bunkers, Vietnam [VIDEO]

I wasn’t familiar with the urban exploration situation in Vietnam before I landed in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh), but after doing a Google search, I quickly learned about the abandoned war bunkers at the Cu Chi Tunnels. Exploring underground abandoned places is not typically my thing, probably because the opportunity has never arisen. But when […]

Abandoned Broadway Hotel, Brisbane

The abandoned Broadway Hotel in Brisbane has been protected by the Queensland Heritage Register since 1992, but that hasn’t deterred arsonists, graffiti artists, squatters and urban exploring photographers like me! 🙂  Sadly, the building has been destroyed by three fires and much of the structure, walls and ceilings are totally dilapidated. The ground floor is […]
