Kabayan – Philippines

A seemingly small, inconsequential town in the Philippines, Kabayan is actually home to a series of caves that house hundreds of mummified corpses, just in case you decide to go for a visit and need a little nightmare fuel.


SS America – Canary Islands

There’s something especially creepy about an old, abandoned ship like the SS America, which is beached just off the coast of the Canary Islands and has been since 1994, though an attempt to move it beginning in 2005 pretty much destroyed it to the point where it’s only viewable during low tide now.


City Hall Station – New York

If you’re thinking City Hall Station, a long abandoned subway station in New York City, looks familiar it’s probably because it was used in the old Ninja Turtles movies as their base of operations in the sewers – of course if you wander down there now you’re more likely to get stabbed by a transient than meet Leonardo.


Overtoun Bridge – Scotland

If you’re a dog lover, you probably want to avoid the Overtoun Bridge, as it is home to the inexplicable phenomenon of dogs actually leaping to their deaths for no apparent reason, with dozens upon dozens having seemingly killed themselves over the last half century.


Aokigahara Forest – Japan

Aokigahara Forest – Japan

On the surface, Aokigahara Forest looks like any other slightly creepy forest until you realize that for whatever reason, it attracts an absurd number of suicides – at which point it goes from slightly creepy to absurdly terrifying, knowing that a quiet stroll could end in finding a recent victim or two.


El Hotel Del Salto – Colombia

What was once a luxury hotel overlooking a gorgeous waterfall in Colombia is now an abandoned and, supposedly, haunted relic that was shut down in part because the waterfall was believed to have been contaminated.


Body Farm – Tennessee

The “Body Farm” actually serves an outstanding purpose, as this facility in Tennessee is the training ground for folks like the FBI and other forensics experts to determine causes of death, times of death, and so forth, using real donated cadavers to do so – which also means the place is absolutely filled with dead bodies at every moment.


Parisian Catacombs – France

The Catacombs of Paris have long been a massive tourist attraction, as they create basically a giant underground city – one that just happens to be constructed largely of human bones from floor to ceiling.


Bannerman Castle – New York

Looking at Bannerman Castle, you’d think it was some ancient medieval fortress in Europe rather than a long abandoned residence sitting in the middle of the Hudson River in New York, and was built by a man named Francis Bannerman – who passed the time in his fortress collecting massive amounts of military grade weaponry.


Pripyat – Ukraine

There’s just something particularly unsettling about an entire abandoned town that’s been seemingly frozen in time, especially when you factor in the possibility of nuclear fallout that comes from, oh, something like Chernobyl, which is what you get when you travel to Pripyat.
