You’ll Never Guess What’s Below This Abandoned Shopping Mall. It’s Seriously Amazing.

The New World Mall located in Bangkok, Thailand has been abandoned since 1997. It was forced to close because of building violations. Then in 1999 a fire destroyed the building’s roof, which causes the basement of the structure to flood with rainwater.

The standing water in the empty shopping center quickly became a breeding ground for mosquitoes. As a way to combat the pests, locals introduced koi fish to the murky waters. Not only did the fish take care of the bugs, but they took on a life of their own. The result is a now unique, thriving, urban fish habitat where no one expected it.

Who would have thought to use koi fish as a way to fight urban decay? Share this amazing story by clicking below.
