Number 1 Phuket Attraction
Phuket FantaSea bills itself as the “ultimate cultural theme park”. It is a claim that the park well deserves. Phuket FantaSea is unlike perhaps any other destination in the world, offering visitors a whirlwind tour of Thai history, culture and cuisine. Any visitor young or small will leave FantaSea with a greater knowledge and appreciation of this incredible country. The park is divided into several sections, each of which offers its own special contribution to the understanding of visitors and this is just one of the reasons why it's the number 1 Phuket attraction.
One of the most popular parts of the park is the “Fantasy of a Kingdom” show, which is a cross between a theatrical production and a history lesson that will leave all guests mesmerized. The show is hosted by the Prince of Kamala, and it is through his eyes and storytelling that guests will first become acquainted with the various regions of Thailand and their unique customs and ways of life. Especially in older times, and still today to a lesser extent, Thailand’s four main regions (North, South, Central Plains, Northeast/Isaan) are quite distinct from one another in ethnic makeup, cuisine and even language.
The show features massive battle scenes that are truly awe-inspiring as well as performances from elephants and acrobatic dancers whose elaborate costumes bring the tales of Thai mythology to life. The show includes “4D” immersive effects, pyrotechnics, special effects and much more, enrapturing visitors from every corner of the globe.
The “Fantasy of a Kingdom” show is hosted on at the “Palace of the Elephants” theater, which is an attraction in its own right. The theater is truly state of the art in every way, seating over 3000 guests comfortably. The theater is designed with traditional aspects of Thai architecture and pays homage to the sacrifices elephants have made to the construction and defense of Siam/Thailand over the years.
Theme Parks in Thailand
Whether one likes to dine before or after taking in the show, the Golden Kinnaree buffet restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy an incredible meal to match an incredible show. Its namesake, Kinnaree, is a half-woman, half-bird creature of Thai mythology, legendary for grace, beauty and charm. The restaurant itself is designed to give guests a feeling as though they are eating in an enchanted forest. It's features such as this that makes it one of the best theme parks in Thailand.
The feeling is complemented by the superb service and the absolutely incredible food. Dishes on offer include the very best of Thai seafood, with favorites like fried snapper or steamed tilapia available alongside soups such as tom yum goong and curries, all served of course with rice and plenty of drinks. Those that don’t like spicy food need not fret, as there is plenty of mild food available to suit all tastes.
In addition to the restaurant and the theater, Phuket FantaSea features an incredible shopping area, with a large number of shops selling all kinds of souvenirs and keepsakes. Carnival Village, as the shopping street is known, is brightly lit and fun for all ages, even featuring games for children.
Phuket FantaSea is an experience like no other where visitors will learn a great deal about Thailand and Thai culture. With such a rich past, a culture rooted in tradition and delicious cuisine, there’s no better way to experience it all first-hand than with a trip to Phuket FantaSea.
