Local Residence in Thailand Turns an Abandoned Mall Into an Urban Aquarium After Doing This

A mall in Bangkok, Thailand which was built for about a number of years ago have been in the craze of residents and tourists. 


It is, in fact, an abandoned shopping mall named as the New World Mall. Unfortunately, the mall/shopping center stopped functioning and operating because the required building safety regulations were not met. But what's amazing about this mall is the story behind it.

The mall went on fire in the year 1999, and it caused devastation in the construction of the mall too much. Roofs and interior were destroyed making it very vulnerable to any condition. The residents did not bother to repair the building anymore that is why it rot easily and destruction of other things inside continued. For some time, it is a big problem to the people residing near the area due to the mosquitoes inhabiting and breeding inside the lot.

Nature has claimed the building and is now a property part of it. The wall and the floors were filled with plants that grew over time. And through the years, as rain and storms passed, a collection of heavy downpour filled the basement.

With the water at hand, it became a breeding ground for mosquitoes which became a nuisance for the people residing near the abandoned mall. But some had the guts and thought of a solution to solve the problem. A number of fishes were thrown by some of the local residents to keep the insects under control at least.

It now looks like a big fishing pond with various marine species including koi fish, mango fish, goldfish, catfish, silverfish, and tilapia. All thee fishes multiplied which in turn functions in aiding the insect invasion under control.

Ever since the local residents are now at ease with the condition of the abandoned building, the merchants around it especially are in fact in favor of the current condition of the building because it has become a tourist spot.

Isn't it amazing to see how functional an abandoned building can be? A big pond with escalators and chairs is something rare, unique and worth seeing.
