Thailands Death Cafe Gives Customers a Stylish Reason to Think About Dying

first_img No one likes to think about death, but everyone loves a cafe. That’s why it’s so strange that a cafe was built around the idea of death. A new cafe in Thailand called the Kid-Mai Death Cafe is in Bangkok, with death permeating pretty much every corner of its establishment. The word “death” is there as much as the feeling of such is there at all times, and the idea of which is to make patrons “appreciate” and contemplate how fleeting their everyday lives are, as death waits around every corner. You may not see the sunlight of the next day, so better appreciate what you have while you have it, of course. One of the first things patrons see is a replica funeral ceremony including wreaths, skeletons, a coffin, and lots of signs talking about the permanence of death. Signs meant to get patrons to think about their life are posted everywhere within the cafe as well. If you’re feeling feisty, you can lay down in the coffin with its lid closed for what seems like an eternity of three minutes and get a small discount off of your bill for doing so. Stay on target The cafe does still have delicious coffees and other beverages, though, as is the point of a cafe. They’re named things like “Born,” “Elder,” “Painful,” and “Death” and they look delicious and appetizing, especially “Painful,” which looks like it has some yummy red strawberries or something of that sort, resembling a parfait.center_img Launchpad Blaze Postpones JAXA’s Cargo Ship Launch to ISSJapan’s Hayabusa-2 Probe Packs Up Space Rock Cargo From Asteroid Ryugu Kid-Man Death Cafe is a popular destination with lots of different visitors and reasons for people to come check it out, even if you’re afraid to die — everyone is.
