    FantaSea

    A wildly ambitious $20 million cultural theme park near Kamala Bay which compares itself to a Las Vegas extravaganza showcasing Thai culture. As a spectacle it is certainly amazing with 30 or so elephants, mock battles, pyrotechnics and aerial ballet in an auditorium that seats 2,000 just part of the entertainment. It is certainly not for serious students of Thai culture, but is a beautifully choreographed and delightful piece of theatre. The park opens at 5.30 pm and a cultural shopping village and fairground set in a mocj Ayuthaya or Angkorian city greets the visitors. Everything is on a grand scale and works very professionally, and although it is designed to help you spend your money as quickly as possible, one cannot help being impressed by its buffet hall holds 4,000 people and the food is quite good too. The show starts at 9 pm and lasts an hour and 20 mintues. The show & buffet costs 1,500 Bhat.

    When I first saw the posters for FantaSea, I thought-wow got to go there, and I did.

    Although the show was entertaining, I felt that it was all a bit plasticky and not what you would expect in Thailand.

    As you go into the palace of the elephants you can have your photo taken with a baby tiger or an elephant or two.
    Be warned you have to give your camera in-there is no photography allowed. However, it is secure and your camera is placed in a bag and you are given a numbered colour coded token to collect your camera after the show. It was well organised and you could collect your camera and any photographs you may have had taken without too much waiting
    The kids will love it!

    the show

    Didn't go because I wanted to go, but as the tickets were included in the package.. so why not? It turned out to be better than I expected~

    Phuket Fanta Sea is a.... theme park i guess.. it is actually the winner of several Thailand tourism awards in the past few years. U can do a lot of shopping inside.. i bought a lot of elephant stuffs.. really cute! ^_^ Some Thai boxing "SHOW" ( it's really a show cuz i think they actually had rehersal on every move), some game stalls.. and a biggest-buffet-restaurant in Asia.. it sure was big... but i guess when u eat, "BIG" is not your concern ...

    And then there is this "Fantasy of a Kingdom" Show.. starts at 9pm and lasts for about 1.5 hrs. It's not the best show i saw.. but its okay.. full of entertainment and traditional thai stuffs... and u get to see the elephants.. the sheeps.. the cows.. the chickens.. in the show.. unfortunately.. photo-taking is not allowed!!

    Bottom line is.. i won't pay for it.. but if its included in your package or somehow u got the ticket.. it's worth the transportation cost... (round trip about 200baht from patong)

    This fabulous(and totally worth it!) show...animals,music,tricks-not childish-a TOTAL must see! It's a whole festival!

    Book tickets in advance,at your hotel or from one of those little travel kiosks (about 1000 baht without dinner) this includes a pickup and drop.

    Cultural show

    When you entry Phuket Fantasea you are greeted with traditional dancers. These dancer were delightful to watch and my girls had fun try to bend their fingers back like the girls on the stage.
