The fantasy world of Phuket Fantasea

I'm grateful to be back to continue my Phuket adventure last summer. Let's start the ball rolling, shall we? 
Phuket Fantasea is the island's largest show with hundreds of cast performing on stage covered with very adorning costumes. There are also trapeze artists that will surprise you hanging just above your head. Elephants that are dancing and obeying the casts commands. And other animals that will make your Phuket vacation a real adventure.

We arrived at Phuket Fantasea a few minutes before the show. Everybody was taking photos and busy exploring its massive area. Different shops ranging from exotic products and foods here and there. It was jam-packed so to speak.
The show, a traditional Thai story, was blended with fantasy and special effects that we normally see in movies. The result was just a stunning, superb and well presented show.

The fun doesn't end there. After the show, we headed to the restaurant and was surprised with its size. The dinning area was so big I thought we were in a basketball court. Foods are everywhere - American, European, Thai, you name it. I guess the way it bill itself as “the ultimate cultural theme park” gives justice to the adjective used. Try it, you won't be disappointed.
