Siriraj Hospital and the tale of Si-Oui :

You might need to break out a Chang beer for this one.

For those of holidaying in the land of smiles, how about a nice day out to the Siriraj medical museums pathological and forensic exhibit? 

The Siriraj Medical Museum in Bangkok, Thailand, for the layman, is a gruesomely fascinating formaldehyde pickled nightmare world, including a gallery of suicide, an exhibit of Siamese twins in jars, forensic evidence from crimes, cadavers cut in half and heads in jars. Although extremely valuable and educational for students in the medical field, it is not for the squeamish.

Siriraj hospital is home to preserved body of Chinese immigrant and serial child killer cannibal “Si-oui” (or Si Ouey) in a big glass display box.

Si-oui is probably Thailand’s most famous serial killer, responsible for the deaths of half a dozen young boys. He suffocated them and ate their hearts and livers as he believed the consumption of the organs gave him powers.

There is even a movie about him, here’s the trailer:

You're not allowed to take photos in the museum, so these are just a couple i found online.

As you can see on the map, you'll have to cross the river from this one. But it's not so difficult to find.

That's all for this one folks. 
Hope I didn’t ruin your Pad Thai.
