Abandoned Spooky Tour – In Indonesia, mystical things often happen, and these things are already familiar to our ears. Even those who live in big cities like Jakarta still believe in it. For some people in the world, reviewing a mystical story is a very pleasant thing. No wonder, if entertainment and even horror-themed tours are very much in demand. As Halloween approaches, horror lovers are ready to wear and party for the day.
Often there is an eerie silence that surrounds remote places, as well as a unique energy that speaks of something deep within us, playing with our curiosity. From former industrial islands to forgotten unique monuments, these places are still interesting and exciting.
Gunkanjima di Nagasaki, Japan
Known as Battleship Island (Gunkanjima in Japanese), this battleship-like shape is on Hashima Island and is a former deep-sea coal mine off the coast of Nagasaki. Founded in the late 19th century. The 16-hectare island was once home to more than 5,000 workers and their families before being permanently closed.
This abandoned place in the world is filled with weathered building facades, dense grass surrounding its surface. This arena was once the shooting location of the 2012 Bond film Skyfall as the headquarters of Raoul Silva. Despite being in ruins, this tourist destination is still carrying out operations starting from Nagasaki Port.
Pripyat di Ukraina utara
April 26, 1986, is immortalized in the world’s memory of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant accident that resulted in the evacuation of nearly 50,000 people from the nearby area and nearby town of Pripyat, which served as a base for many workers and families. Nowadays, exclusion zones are like ghost towns, with roads, hospitals, homes, and schools lying everywhere when they were abandoned when the destruction occurred.
Although radiation levels are still higher than usual, permitted excursions are available around the excluded areas. Last year’s hit show ‘Chernobyl’ proved to be the catalyst to spark renewed interest among tourists visiting the Abandoned Places of the World to discover the history and background of what happened there. As with “dark tourism” (a growing trend in recent years), visitors should exercise caution when visiting.
Hanging Coffins in Echo Valley, Sagada, Philippines
Funerals are usually marked with a tombstone. But in the Philippines, there is a cliff that is used as a place to hang coffins.
Located in the Echo Valley, a number of families who hang coffins here believe that the ritual has become a tradition to continue good fortune for the living generations.
In the midst of lush and quiet trees, of course the view of the coffins makes visitors with shriveled guts not feel at home for long there.
Oradour-Sur Glane in France
This small town about 20 kilometers from Limoges was one of the worst war crimes sites committed by the Nazis in France, when German troops invaded and killed 642 people, including 193 children. Only one woman and five men survived in the city that day
The eerie town of Oradour-Sur Glane remains untouched, with pre-war tram lines and power lines alongside rusty bodies. Currently, the Abandoned Places of the World can be accessed through the Center de la Mémoire, which uses a multimedia display to provide context and honor victims. It was a terrifying but important event in history.
Eastern State Prison in Pennsylvania, USA
It was once one of the most famous prisons in the world that housed the notorious criminal Al Capone in luxury cells. The Eastern National Prison in Pennsylvania is now a derelict and abandoned watchtower.
However, this place allows you to visit. The prison is open daily from 10 am to 5 pm. Abandoned Places in the World also includes information about the American prison system and art installations. Entrance tickets for tours can be purchased online. From mid-September to Halloween the prison turns into a very scary haunted house.
Island of the Dolls, Mexico
Made to resemble a human but with a blank stare, the figure of a doll does indeed trigger horror. A number of feature films even bring dolls to life as scary creatures.
If Annabelle or Chucky dolls haven’t been giving you nightmares, it never hurts to challenge yourself to visit this island.
On the Island of the Dolls, hundreds of dolls with hideous shapes hang from the lush trees. The sight of course made me shudder, especially when it was added to the mystery story that seemed to make the legs want to turn around immediately.
It is said that about 50 years ago a girl was found dead holding a doll. Since then, local residents who feel sorry for the dolls began to hang as a sign of mourning.
Over time, the dolls that were hung were weathered. The shape also becomes unruly.
The spooky atmosphere was added by the confession of several visitors who heard the whispers of the spirit of the boy who was engrossed in playing among the trees.
