Bangkok shopping mall Seacon Bangkae is getting in a Halloween mood from October 19 to 28, setting up a “Ghost Party on Death Island” in its Main Atrium.
The mall on Phetchkasem Road, with sponsorship from Thai Life Insurance, is building a deserted island in the middle of the sea, which will have more than 30 ghosts haunting shoppers.
It will be full of scary derelict schools, hospitals and other buildings – and feature a parade of spooky ghosts.
Rossaporn Khiewwan, assistant manager of marketing, says there’ll be doctor and nurse ghosts, a student ghost, a joker ghost, a nun ghost, a ghost in pyjamas and, why not, a zombie, so cameras should be at the ready at all times.
The not-quite dead will be leading bemused guests into a “haunted building” with more fights hiding in every corner. It’s free to experience three times a day – at 11.30am and 2.30 and 5.30pm.
Elsewhere, spirits straight from the crypt will be selling souvenirs, food and other products at more than 50 shops – though getting them might be a challenge for the nerves.
