For people who have a love for horror, planning a vacation can be a lot of fun. Of course, one of the main concerns is working as many spooky attractions into the itinerary. There are lots of interesting things to see and do that take spooky scenes as their theme. Here are some of the most haunted buildings in the world for horror lovers to check out:
The Beechworth Lunatic Asylum in Australia
This abandoned asylum was formerly called Mayday Hills Lunatic Asylum and can be found in Victoria, Australia. This spooky structure served as a working mental hospital from 1867 to 1995 and more than nine thousand patients died there, many under suspicious circumstances. Guided tours of the Mayday Hills Lunatic Asylum are now offered to visitors and a large number of people claim to have had creepy encounters there.
The Bhangarh Fort in India
No trip to India would be complete without paying a visit to the Bhangarh Fort, in the city of Rajasthan. While most people visit this city to go camel riding through the Thar Desert, horror lovers in the know will want to head straight to the fort to see this spooky sight for themselves. According to local legend, the fort was cursed many centuries ago, when a wizard tried to woo the princess with the help of a magic potion. His advances were turned aside and, ever since, the town and particularly, the fort, have been the scene of tragedy and mass murder.
Aokigahara in Japan
This spooky site is commonly known as the Suicide Forest and hundreds of people have traveled there from all over the world to kill themselves. Many people believe that the souls of these people haunt the forest to this day and most local people refuse to visit the forest after dark for fear of coming across these souls that definitely do not rest in peace.
