Thai Culture In Phuket at FantaSea

Phuket FantaSea is the ultimate must-visit attraction in the island of Phuket, the cultural theme park is situated within easy reach of all the leading hotels and offers a breathtaking experience suitable for the whole family.

Winner of numerous accolades, FantaSea itself is a spectacular park complete with a shopping village and restaurants to suit every taste with a buffet concept in mind. Guests can expect to take in an evening of authentic Thai culture complete with entertainment and good old fashioned fun.

Live performances and street shows take place throughout the evening, and there are many street stalls and arcade styled games to take part in. Highlights of the park include the Tiger Jungle Adventure and the Golden Pavilion; I'd recommend getting to FantaSea early to see all the park has to offer and catch a glimpse of some of the resident exotic wildlife.

The experience isn't complete without taking advantage of one of FantaSea's gourmet buffet restaurants, The Golden Kinnaree offering World Food and Suriyamas, a 5-star dining experience serving a feast of exquisite seafood against an opulent backdrop.

The finale of the evening's festivities is FantaSea's flagship show, The Fantasy of a Kingdom, which is hosted in the park's state-of-the-art Palace Of the Elephants theatre. The jaw-dropping performance features acrobatics, aerial performances and magic illusion creating a journey into Thai culture and history in a lighthearted and enjoyable way. An impressive array of animals is also brought onto the stage including the talented cast of elephants the show is so well known for.

FantaSea is open Friday to Wednesday from 5.30pm to 11.30pm daily; shows take place at 9pm with an earlier show of 7.30pm on selected dates throughout the year. Tickets are best booked in advance and dinner at Suriyamas is subject to an extra upgrade cost.
