This feels very surreal whilst walking aroun Fantasea. Buffet meal was good and show was quite incredible...although I dont have a clue what the show was about!!

“Must see if you are in Phuket”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Excellent performance, beautiful grounds, great before show shopping and excellent layout of dinner makes this a a must visit if you are in Phuket. We visited with our two kids 4 and 6, they loved the show, different acts and the animals in it, We reached there just on time, but I highly recommend to reach there well in advance so you can enjoy things before the show. Do take your camera, it is not allowed inside the show but before and after you will have lots of opportunity to take excellent pictures. they also offer pictures with elephants, tiger cub and performers which are good memories to bring back. Food was served in a beautiful hall, excellent choice, had whole Halal menu, over all we loved it, we wish we had gone earlier.

“Fantasy Land”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

This is like a Giant Theme park - everything is on a large scale. Elephants, pots, shopping places, etc. Loved every minute of being there.
The Koi had a giant pond whereby to swim and visitors can feed them.
The show itself was Good but not Great. I felt that the pictures with the baby tigers was an exploitation of them. It looked like the baby tigers were starved during the day, and then fed bottles of milk during their photo moment. They drank their milk with gusto. Baby animals should not be used for tourist curiosity.
Otherwise the show itself was well run, the elephant show was excellent. The only down fall was the speaking of Thai which made it difficult to follow a story, especially when the 3 different cultures were performed. One had to go on intuition about the show in certain places

“Good nights entertainment”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

We visited over Christmas 2012 and the show is only part of the experience. We must recommend eating a meal in the huge dining room where the selection of food was fantastic.
There are many attractions at the venue before the show starts, so we recommend you get there two hours before the show. The show itself was very professional but as non Thai speaking people we battled to follow the story line a bit. There were some fantastic aerial acrobats that for us were the highlight as well as the well trained animals from chickens to elephants that performed.
The only negative is the fact that they are so strict on taking cameras and cell phones or video equipment into the show, and you have to hand them in before the show starts, so go in early a the queue is long. The problem is at the end of teh show queing to get your camera back. But all in all a very enjoyable experience.
