This is a list of locations reportedly haunted by ghosts or other supernatural beings. Reports of haunted locations are part of ghostlore, which is a form of folklore.

They can also be venues featuring other frightening subjects such as crazed animals or escaped murderers. The illusion—created by actors, animatronics, theatrical sets, sounds, lighting, and other special effects—is designed to frighten patrons who typically purchase tickets for the privilege. These events are open to the public and commonly held throughout the month of October, leading up to Halloween. However there is a small sub-set of dark attractions that are open all year long. Over the years, dark attractions have expanded their scope beyond the "haunted house" format to include any place that is either ominous or foreboding, such as abandoned factories, old prisons or early 1900s-era hospitals/asylums.

Australia
The Alkimos is a shipwreck of a former U.S. Navy ship from World War II that occurred off the coast of Western Australia in 1964.
Beechworth Lunatic Asylum in Beechworth, Victoria is reportedly haunted by several ghosts of departed patients. The asylum was open from 1867-1995. Ghost tours are run nightly.
Monte Cristo Homestead in Junee, New South Wales was the site of seven deaths in the 1800s. Various ghost groups have reported sightings there.
A large number of visitors to Port Arthur, Tasmania report seeing spectres of past convicts and others wandering through the grounds. Stories of ghostly interactions are recorded from the 1870s to the present day with many of these modern sightings recorded on the nightly ghost tours held at the site.
Thirteen people were executed at the Ballarat Gaol in Ballarat. The remains of seven criminals are still in the grounds. The Ballarat Ghost Tours operate nightly.
Princess Theatre in Melbourne has reported several ghosts since the building opened in 1886. The theatre's best known 'inhabitant' is Frederick Baker, stage name 'Federici', a talented bass-baritone singer who died in March 1888 whilst singing Mephistopheles in Faust - and who was seen by the rest of the cast taking his bows with them shortly thereafter. For years the theatre kept a seat vacant in the dress circle for Federici (only ceasing the practice on economic grounds), and his appearance in the dress circle during rehearsals for a new show is considered a good omen.
Lalor House in Richmond, Victoria is reportedly haunted by the ghosts of the family of Peter Lalor.
The Mill Hill Hotel in Bondi Junction, New South Wales is allegedly haunted by former workers, including the former hotel-keeper William Phillips.
The Old Adelaide Gaol in Adelaide, South Australia is allegedly haunted by a number of prisoners as well as former prison guards.

India
Bhangarh, Rajasthan: In the first half of the 17th century, Madho Singh of Amber built his capital here with the sanction of an ascetic Baba Balanath, who meditated there, but not without his dire prediction: "Look my dear chap! The moment the shadow of your palace touches me, you are undone. The city shall be no more!" In ignorance, Ajab Singh, one of the dynasty's later descendants, raised the palace to such a height that the shadow reached the forbidden place. Hence the devastation.

The second myth is as follows: A tantric battle waged between the lovely queen Ratnavali and the wicked sorcerer Singha Sevra, who was attracted by the queen's beauty. Singha Sevra chhatri can be seen on the top of the hill. Desperately, he tried to trap her in his magical web, and failed every time, as the queen herself was a past-mistress in the tantric art.

The last battle took place on the day when the queen losing eventually her temper, transformed a glass bottle containing the massaging oil into a big rock and flung it towards the hill-top, where sat the devil. In vain he tried to stall this glass missile. It was too late. Sensing his imminent death, concentrating all his powers, he spat his dying curse: "I die! But thou too, thou Ratnavali shall not live here anymore. Neither thou, nor thine kin, nor these walls of the city. None shall see the morning sun!". The night was spent transferring the palace treasures to the new site of Ajabgarh. In the morning came the tempest levelling everything to the ground.

The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has put up a signboard at Bhangarh stating (among others): "Entering the borders of Bhangarh before sunrise and after sunset is strictly prohibited." Tourists who visit this place say that there is a strange feeling in the atmosphere of Bhangarh, which causes symptoms of anxiety and restlessness.

Indonesia
Pelabuhan Ratu - Legend says that Nyai Roro Kidul (Nyai is a Javanese honorific for Madame), daughter of King Prabu Siliwangi, is the Queen of the South Sea. She is supposed to have committed suicide by jumping off the cliff and into the sea. Rumors say that if someone wears green when swimming (the Queen's favorite color), he or she will be pulled by her ghost into the sea. Room 308 at the Samudra Beach Hotel is set aside for the Queen.

Japan
Amiidaji (Temple of Amida) in Dan-no-ura, in the Shimonoseki Strait, is the location of a legendary haunting. It is said that the blind Biwa hōshi Hoichi, a resident of the temple, was visited every night by the ghost of a dead samurai and made to play the biwa in the cemetery, but the priest of the temple soon found out and had the heart sutra painted on every part of Hoichi's body apart from the ears. When the samurai returned one night to take Hoichi to the cemetery, he could only see Hoichi's ears, so he took them instead and Hoichi was left earless. Hoichi is commonly known as "Mimi-Nashi Hoichi", "Hōichi the Earless", due to this event. This legend was famously retold by Lafcadio Hearn in his Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange Things which was later adapted as part of Masaki Kobayashi's film Kwaidan.
Aokigahara, the forest at the bottom of Mt. Fuji, is a popular location for suicide. This gives rise to a widespread belief that it is haunted. It was once featured on an episode of Destination Truth on the SyFy Channel.
Okiku's Well at Himeji Castle is often said to be haunted by the ghost of Okiku. She is supposed to rise from the well at night and count to nine before shrieking and returning to the well.

Malaysia
Genting Highlands is a city in Pahang well-known for its amusement park and casino. Several people have committed suicide here. A man has been seen jumping off the hotel rooftop, only to disappear just before he hits the ground. Several rooms in the hotel are never rented, no matter how high the demand for accommodation is. Those who did see the inside of these rooms reported that they were filled with "old Chinese ghost wards", and they would then fall inexplicably ill for days afterwards. Several people staying in the hotel there have had experiences of supernatural phenomena, such as knocking coming from inside a wardrobe that was proven to be empty.
Poliklinik Cheras. Formerly the Lady Templer Hospital, the foundation stone was laid by Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent in October 1952. Much of the hospital closed down in 1985, except for a few minor buildings which housed the Poliklinik Cheras. The empty, dilapidated structures were situated on a fairly secluded, leafy hillock, which added to their sinister appearance. One visitor reported that it felt "haunted and bizarre", and it is rumoured that it is haunted by the ghost of a patient who died on the premises. The buildings are currently being torn down to make way for a new rehabilitation hospital.

Philippines
The Philippine Military Academy in Baguio City is considered the most haunted place in the country. Sometimes, late at night, a platoon can be heard marching in the parade grounds. A ghost of a cadet dressed in parade uniform and left in one of the lockers still appears. A ghost of a priest who was beheaded during the Japanese occupation period appears here as well as the ghost of a white lady.
Baguio City itself is also considered highly haunted. Aside from the military academy, there are other haunted places scattered throughout the city, such as cemeteries, old hotels and sites where populated buildings and structures used to stand until the 1990 earthquake brought them down, injuring and killing the people inside.
Balete Drive, a residential area in Cubao, Quezon City, is famous for the apparition of a white lady. It is told that there was a teenage girl who was raped by a cab driver in the '50s in that area. It is possible that the lady of Balete is seeking revenge.
The Manila Film Center was the site of a construction accident in the early '80s. When construction of the center was rushed for a film festival, the ceiling scaffolding collapsed, killing several workmen who fell to the orchestra below. Rather than halt construction to rescue survivors and retrieve the bodies of dead workmen, Imelda Marcos, the First Lady and the main financier of the project, was believed to have ordered cement to be poured into the orchestra, entombing the fallen workmen. Some of them were even buried alive in the orchestra. Various ghostly activities were reported on the site including mysterious sounds, voices and poltergeist activity. In the late '90s, a group called the Spirit Questors began to make visits to the film center in an attempt to contact and appease the souls of the workmen who were killed in the building. Some of these spirits claimed to have moved on, but a few allegedly remain. Previously abandoned for its haunted reputation, the building is now currently in use.
The Ozone Disco was a disco in Quezon City that caught on fire. Due to mass panicking, nobody was able to get out. Some people near the location hear ghostly disco music in their houses at night and see faint people dancing.

Singapore
The Old Changi Hospital is reportedly one of the most haunted places in the country. Built in the 1930s, it is located at Netherveron Road in Changi Village. During World War II, prisoners of war were held in the hospital and tortured to death. Spirits of different races and nationalities can be seen wandering around the compound.
The Old Ford Motor Factory on Upper Bukit Timah Road was built by Ford Motor Works as the first car assembly plant in Southeast Asia. During World War II, Lt. General A. E. Percival, head of the Allied forces in Singapore, surrendered to Japanese General Yamashita at the factory on 15 February 1942. The Japanese forces then established their Singapore headquarters on the premises, on which many battles were fought. These days, reports have indicated that strange lights and sounds often come from the factory.
Fort Canning Park is the most historic part of Singapore. The hill was named in 1861 in the honor of Viscount Charles John Canning, the first Viceroy of India. Prior to 1861, the Malays called the hill Bukit Larangan (Forbidden Hill) for several possible reasons. It reputedly contains the tomb, or keramat, of Sultan Iskandar Shah, the Malay ruler of the Kingdom of Singapura, who is said to have forbidden ordinary people to come to the hill because his concubines and wives used to bath at a spring there. The Malays were fearful of climbing the hill as they thought the palace of their ancestor kings had once stood there. The site had sightings of fabled lion for which Sri Tri Buana, ruler of Temasek, later named the island Singapura (Lion City). Besides the fabled lion, the Malays believed that the hill is haunted by many other ghosts and spirits.
At the Old Commando Jetty near Changi Beach, there have been alleged sightings of pontianak, vampires of Malaysian folklore, within the vicinity.
