This post would be the last post about our trip in Phuket.I'm going to move to another topic soon and it will be an interesting topic. You want to know about it?.. Stay tuned to next post.
So for today I will share with you a few infos and some pics of Phuket Fantasea and Bangla Road.
Okay, I start with Phuket Fantasea.
Phuket Fantasea is actually a place of theater, located at Kamala Beach, 9km from Patong. It is indeed a huge theater. Thousands of tourists around the world came to this theater every evening. The shows are about Thai cultural dances and legends. I found it was quite interesting. If you really eager about this shows, make sure don't lost the opportunity to buy a ticket to enter the theater. The cost is 1400bath per person including transfer from hotel.
You are not allowed to bring camera inside the theater. You need to queue up to a counter to put your camera there.
Phuket Fantasea operating hours is 5.30pm-11.30pm (local time). To know more about Phuket Fantasea, visit HERE.
Scroll down for some pics. :)
The shows were done at about 2 hours later. I was amazed by the performances. I wonder how they trained the elephants, tiger, goats, birds, buffaloes and so on to be a part of the shows.
The backdrop also keep changing according storyline and it's not a small backdrop. It's HUGE! And the shows itself involving a lot of peoples. From magic show to traditional dances to legend stories. They set up those well. Looks like a very professional job. I never been to this kind of theater and it was really a great experience for me.
We walked around outside the Palace of the Elephant (where the shows took place) afterwards. You can see colorful buildings with interesting features. There is also buffet restaurant and huts that selling souvenirs around Phuket Fantasea.
About 10pm the mini bus came to picked us back to hotel. Hubby and I decided not to back yet to our room. We want to discover about nightlife in Bangla Road since we didn't go there yet for the past 2 days we were in Patong. Bangla Road is really a famous road in Patong and we don't want to miss the opportunity to discover about it. Since it was our last night in Phuket, so there we go.. to Bangla Road afterward.
To be honest, i didn't know anything about Bangla Road, despite i know it was really a famous destination for tourists. I thought it was just like Petaling Street in KL haha..
Well, now i experienced it myself. I don't know what to say haha.. I was a bit culture shock.
Okay let the pictures do the talking lah..hehe
So how do you feel after looking at those pictures?..hehe..
