Pattaya Attractions

The Romance of the Three Kingdoms Park (Suan Samkok)

The Three Kingdoms Theme Park is a testament of filial piety that the six children have for their father, Mr. Kiarti Srifuengfung, a successful Chinese-Thai businessman. His last wish was for a memorial to be built that would allow others to understand and appreciate aspects of Buddhism, Thai and Chinese culture and philosophy, and his favorite Chinese epic, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, compiled by Luo Guan Zhong of the Ming Dynasty. It remains the greatest and best known Chinese classical novel. This impressive project also strives to generate income for the society and kingdom of Thailand.

Thai Alangkarn Theater and it’s “The Thai Extravaganza Show”

Thai Alangkarn Theater covers an area of 32 acres. The entire project includes a prototype Hexa stage Theater with 2,000 seats in tiers, Cultural Rostrum and a Restaurant with 1,000 seating capacity.

The Sanctuary of the Truth

An astonishing Teak wood structure, covering 3,000 square meters, celebrating Buddhist, Thai, Chinese, and Indian culture. It is virtually impossible not to be impressed by the sheer scale of the place and the amount of work that has gone into the beautiful carvings. The top point of the building is about 105 meters high. It was constructed to withstand the wind and sunshine on the seashore at Rachvate Cape, Tumbon Naklea, Amphur Banglamung, Chon Buri Province. Well worth the effort to get there.

Si Racha Tiger Farm:
Not far from Pattaya City, the farm has a number of Bengal Tigers, in addition to large crocodiles. The most surprising aspect for visitors is to see tigers, dogs and pigs living together in the same compound. Something you would normally expect only in a Disney movie!

Like Nong Nooch, there is an educational aspect to Underwater World that teaches visitors how crucial it is to conserve the species in our oceans.
