Did you ever walk on an airplane wing? You can experience it at the Airplane Graveyard Bangkok and take amazing photos of an abandoned Jumbo Jet Boeing-747 and two MD-82 Jetliners.
Visiting the Airplane Graveyard is one of the best things to do in Bangkok. Read at the end of the article how to get to the Airplane Graveyard Bangkok and how much it costs.
The location of the airplane graveyard is quite strange. It is neither close to an airport nor in an industrial area.
In the direct surrounding there are condos, a primary school and a temple. Not an area where you would expect airplanes.

When you get closer to the airplane graveyard you will first notice the huge Jumbo Jet, once known as the Queen of the Skies.
Next to it are two McDonnell Douglas MD-82 formerly operated by Orient Thai Airlines. One of them was involved in a bad crash 2007 at Phuket International Airport.
It is said that the planes were owned by a business man who has recycled them and sold all components that could be reused.
Nowadays they are home for three Thai families who use them as shelter and to earn money by charging tourists a small entry fee.
