Phuket Splash Jungle Water Park is fun for all ages. Slides and water attractions in the Park are designed for different age groups. For children, there is a whole water town and judging by the happy squeals and laughter coming from the place, they like it.

Parents with kids can relax too, for example, in the sauna while kids are enjoying the water. There are plenty of lifeguards keeping a watchful eye on everybody’s safety.

Need a break from splashing in the water, having fun in the sun can be tiring, have a snack at the café or a full meal at the restaurant.

Directions: head to the North of the island. At the cross roads with a sign to the airport go straight. You will see the sign “Splash Jungle” on you left opposite a mosque.

Fantasia is a big entertainment park that includes a theater where the show is performed, a restaurant offering a buffet dinner and a beautiful village.

The show tells a legend, where the Prince on a sacred elephant rescues his Princess from hands of Demons. The performance takes place not only on stage, but all around the theater with elephants walking through the audience, and aerial acrobats flying over spectators’ heads.
Theater Gold seats will give you the best view of the show.

Buffet dinner is served in a large dining room, featuring South East Asian and Japanese food with Thai sweets for dessert. Optionally, you can order a VIP dinner with seafood.

The village consists of various pavilions: a games pavilion, a zoo, where animals are kept in unusual rooms instead of cages; a pavilion where you can take pictures in national costumes, etc.

Directions: from Kamala beach head North toward Surin beach, it is easy to find.
! It is a good idea to come here by 18.00 then you can have the dinner and have enough time to walk around the park before the show starts at 21.00.

As expected there are a lot of plants, exotic flowers, and tropical trees. It is divided into 30 zones or gardens each dedicated to one collection of plants. There is a cactus garden, an orchid garden etc. In the rainforest garden, you will find a waterfall with a path surrounded by foliage creating a green corridor with aerial roots hanging like a curtain from above.

The Garden is neither very informative nor immensely big nor does it have very rare plants. But we are certain that you will enjoy the beauty of nature and take some nice pictures.

There is also a restaurant, a playground, and a gift shop.
The Botanical Garden is closed on Wednesdays.

Aquarium presents a great opportunity to see many inhabitants of the local waters. They can be observed in water tanks and in the underwater tunnel.

Brochures with a map of the Park are available at the entrance. There are a lot of tropical fishes in the main building: piranhas, clown fish (Nemo), groupers that reach 300 kg, etc. Behind the main building, there is a footpath along the coast that leads to a pier, Museum of whales and dolphins, as well as a pool with the turtles. There are a lot of signs with very interesting facts posted along the path. For example, you can learn how to use fruits of some coastal trees for medical purposes. Or do you know that Styrofoam used for food packaging takes 500 000 years to decompose?

! Every Saturday and Sunday from 11 am to 11.30 am you can witness underwater feeding of sharks and stingrays.

Directions: it is located in the South-East part of the island, at the end of Cape Panwa. There is only one road leading to the Aquarium so you won’t miss it.
