Thailand is known for being a budget shopping heaven, but did you know that it is also a great destination for amusement parks? Get up close with the magnificent animals of the wild at the Safari World Bangkok, or have a splashing good time at the Cartoon Network Amazone and Ramayana Water Park.
Thailand is perhaps best known for being a shopping paradise and having opulent royal palaces, ornate temples, tropical beaches, and ancient ruins. However, the one thing that travellers often overlook is the many exciting theme parks the country has to offer!
From a zoo to fun water parks, here are three super fun attractions to consider adding to your family’s vacation itinerary.
1. Safari World, Bangkok
Operating Hours: 9am – 5pm
Safari world consists of two parks, named Marine Park and Safari Park.
The Safari park offers you the ultimate safari experience featuring hundreds of animals from all over the world, and includes a wildlife feeding show. Visitors are welcome to drive their own vehicle or choose to take the safari’s coaches into the park.
But what really sets this zoo apart from its competitors is the open zoo concept, whereby the animals roam free in a savannah-like environment instead of being cooped up in individual cages. For the safety of the animals, the prey and predators are separated. Visitors are driven through the compound—confined to the vehicle for safety—as the animals go about their daily activities, promising an unforgettable experience for you to see what it is really like in the great wilderness!
2. Cartoon Network Amazone, Pattaya Bang Saray
Operating Hours: 10am – 7pm
The world’s first Cartoon Network-themed waterpark, Cartoon Network Amazone, allows you to having a splashing good time with all your favourite Cartoon Network characters, including Ben10 and his aliens, The Powerpuff Girls, Adventure Time’s Finn & Jake, and many more!
There are 10 themed zones to cater to every guests’ preferences. Thrill-seekers can go for the high-speed water rollercoasters or the mega wave pool, while those just looking to relax can simply meander down the Riptides Rapids river. Not to mention the Catoonival, the world’s largest aqua playground with 150 different water features.
Lastly, let yourself be mesmerised by dynamic dancers and acrobats during their shows, and watch in awe as their spectacular water and light projections illuminate the evening sky.
3. Ramayana Water Park, Pattaya
Operating Hours: 10am – 6pm
They also have special family packages, so don’t forget to ask for the latest promotions if you’re going in a group!
Ramayana Water Park is one of the largest water parks in South East Asia, consisting of 22 different water rides, of which four are unique to Ramayana. This theme park caters to everyone from young to old, whether you are a thrill-seeker or not. It even has its own floating market within the park. There’s also river walk for visitors to stroll along and relax, and an “island” by the river for you to enjoy the surrounding scenery.
