Visitors to Thailand’s capital can now hang out in what could be world’s most morbid café – complete with coffins and a ‘meet-your-maker’ theme.

This Bangkok coffee shop has been dubbed the “death awareness” café, where customers are encouraged to reflect on their own mortality by taking a time out in a coffin.

The aim is for customers to go on to lead better lives, and the whole idea is based on Buddhist principles.

The “Kid Mai Death Café” – literally meaning “Think New”, is kitted out with a skeleton, aptly named drinks like “death” and “painful”, and even decorated white coffins.

Customers visiting the macabre lunch spot are encouraged to lay down in the coffins for a few moments to think about their dying moments.

Those that choose to do so will land themselves a discounted beverage.

One customer said the whole atmosphere felt like she was at a funeral – which is just what anyone would want on a Saturday afternoon.

According to the owner of the outlet, the restaurant is more than just a gimmick.

Veeranut Rojanaprapa hopes his new venture will teach Thai folks – most of whom are Buddhist – about the benefits of being “death aware”.

He claims that by spending a few minutes in the dark isolation of a coffin, Thailand’s technology-obsessed younger generation will be forced to rethink their life choices.

With his café slap-bang in the middle of a small neighbourhood in northern Bangkok, Rojanaprapa hopes his morbid café will be a welcome daily reminder that life is very short.

However, the café’s presence has not been met with a glowing welcome, with some locals reportedly taking shortcuts just to avoid looking at it.
