Abandoned Bowling Club, Western Australia

I visited this abandoned bowling club in Western Australia whilst on a solo trip away from the rush of life and I loved it so much that I ended up visiting it two days in a row. It was huge, with so many rooms to explore. All the old bowling trophies were scattered everywhere on […]

Abandoned Batman Nightclub, Thailand

Before it became derelict, the Abandoned Batman Nightclub in Thailand was a significant hotspot for locals, tourists, underage drinkers and pimps. However, after its novel inception in 1994, it only operated for a mere 18 months. This building was amazing to walk through. It was huge and so spacious. There was an extremely high elevator […]

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! As I wasn’t sure about the safety of heading into abandoned buildings in Vietnam alone, I hired a bike and an English […]

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 […]
