Customers at this macabre cafe can mull over their problems with a cappuccino - then climb into coffins to reflect on life.

The Death Awareness Cafe in Bangkok, Thailand, is decorated with black wreaths and caskets and shiny corridors like a mortuary.

Despite the macabre appearance, owner Professor Veeranut Rojanaprapa says there’s a deeper meaning behind the eatery - improving society by encouraging people to reflect on their life.

Buddhist followers believe that if people are aware of death they will live less selfishly.

Veeranut said the cafe integrates death awareness from Buddhist philosophy with a cafe.

He hopes that by being faced with death in his coffins, people will be motivated to do good in the world.
