Inspired by Thailand’s rich and exotic heritage, the Phuket Fantasea Show endeavours to showcase the charm and beauty of Thailand.
Using wild animals on stage it enriches ancient Thai traditions with clever on stage technology and special effects that rather disturbingly in todays modern world employs trained elephants, tigers, goats birds chickens and even goats
The large purpose built show complex is a slightly tacky 140-acre theme compound, packed with a multitude of activities and entertainment: a Carnival village with games, handicrafts and shopping opportunities for things you never knew you wanted
A massive 4,000-seat theme restaurant offers a pre show buffet of Thai and international cuisines.
But the main attraction is the somewhat, by local standards, expensive Las Vegas-style theatrical show, where state-of-the-art technology and special effects enhance the grace and beauty of the myths, mysteries and magic of Thailand’s in an extravaganza designed to delight the whole family.
If you are nearby it is worth a visit but do not bother to take your camera or photo taking telephones because you simply waste time queuing to drop them off before and collect them again after the show. Photographing inside the auditorium is strictly prohibited
