Thai Culture Park Phuket

This Thai culture park has only just opened, literally this month. It's not finished either, with only parts of it open, so its also heavily discounted.

Sounds like cheap fun! The best kind.

It was free to enter, and you load up a paper bracelet with credit to pay for things inside. Packets of activities can be added to the bracelet too, a cheaper way to do more activities.

Once inside, there are shops, food, shows, elephants to feed, fish to feed with your hands, fish to feed with your feet, boat trips, dressing up, lots and lots of things.

I didn't really have time to do it all in the afternoon, but I was surprised how much fun it was. The baby didn't like the fish tank, she didn't like candy-floss, she was scared of the elephants, but she loved shopping, she loved the Songkran water fight, she loved the boat ride, her ice-cream, floating a Kratong on the water, and she loved the staff and the staff loved her.

The Thai show was every hour during the afternoon, and it was deeply discounted, instead of 600 baht/person, it was 50 baht/person. Really they should pay the people! The main part of the show, you change into Songkran clothes (provided), then splash your fellow audience members with lots and lots of water. So, if you're the show, how come they don't pay you!

The culture park is called "Thalang Manee Kram", and is just under the new dam, not far from Wat Chalong. There are no signs on the road, I nearly went into the Jewelry store instead.
