“Surprisingly Good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

On recommendation from friends back home we decided to go the night time show at Fanta Sea. With incredibly low expectations, we were blown away. The show was fantastic. It had absolutely everything - pyrotechnics, water fountains, laser lights, acrobats, magic, dancers and stacks of trained animals - chickens, birds, buffaloes, goats and of course elephants! We took the buffet option which provided a reasonable meal. The whole night is run with military precision. No queues or delays. The theme park that the show is part of is very kitsch, but this adds to the attraction. I would thoroughly recommend this night

“Very good Thai Cultural Show... Must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

We ( my wife and 2 children ) enjoyed this show on 19 th June. The show is about Thai arts and cultures. They presents it nicely with colourful costumes, amazingly huge properties& background, stage detail surprises, stunning performavpce, dancing and even 18 elephants join the show. I feel like in a different world. They dance and , fly, .The story doesn't fully understandable to me but still we enjoyed.

In front of the entrance , there is small Pool with colorful fishes. illuminated restaurant Ggolden Kinnaree restaurant looks great at night. I do not know the quality of restaurant, as my ticket do not include it.There is a lot of shops and other entertainment outside, but not so worth . Rreach the spot before 2 hours of the show, so that you can spend time to see all those.

The theatre is huge. The seats are comfort and you will be seated by numbers. The ticket is around 1800 baht but its worth.You cannot carry cameras. Inside the theaters. And there will be crowd in depositing the cameras.
While selecting, Opt for golden VIP seats and try to be seated in front to middle . Don't occupy front 1-6 raws. there is a chance of becoming wet in front 1-3 seats due to showering for the show .Needless to say, you cannot enjoy the show at front seats, even though these seats are categorized as VIP
We purchased the ticket for VIP seat from one of the agency located at beach road in front of our hotel Patong tower. Mac-0920691040. Even though, he promised seat in and around Mid front, in the counter, we came to know the agency made us false promise. It was allotted front seat to us. That is of no use. During the show,after 10 minutes, we changed our seats by ourselves to unoccupied seats located at back side, that was very much comfortable. So do not procure any service from this agency. His name is MAC

Dont miss this show when you visit Phuket .You wont regret it in spending 1800 baht.

“Cirque de soleil, thai style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

Well what can I say....
After a rather disappointing visit to Simon cabaret last night (please read other reviews), we almost cancelled this one after reading several reviews on trip.
So so glad we never, from pick up at the hotel to arrival and departure at the park, a great evening was had by my wife and myself.
What to say about this experience, hmmm, here we go.
Well presented staff were on hand to great us, the park is well thought out, very creative and themed very well, the props from the off were amazing, buildings and costumes alike, no expense has been spared to visually stimulate the guests.
At least a hundred photos were taken of so many things, there are market stalls doing something very different from what is on offer elsewhere in phuket, you have to visit yourself to understand what I mean, but it was far from the generic shops and markets we have visited.
You really do have to have a slow walk round though, if you don't have money to shop more fool you.
We didn't buy loads, some very cool sand candles were on offer, there is a guy that puts different coloured sands into glass containers, but, creates a pattern or picture within the glass using only the sand, a cocktail stick and a lot of patience, I will upload a phot when we receive the item, because it is our honeymoon we asked him for a bespoke version of what he does, you can however buy one there and then and there were several on offer of varying size and price and colours, very crafty, very cool and something I have never seen before anywhere we have been.
The buffet style restaurant was huge, 4000 seats apparently, it was massive, however the food on offer was lovely, the majority of the food was well done in regards to the setup,organised, hot, well presented, tasty and different flavours from different countries too.
We had roast sirloin, veg, char siu with some amazing sauce, but there was Indian, Thai, stroganoff to name a few, we rally had no complaints about the food at all.
Free water, coffee and tea, a very clean restaurant with overly friendly staff, just what you wanton a experience.
We did all the shops and the small but well thought out animal house containing, white peacocks, limas, three white tigers, white doves, hamsters, snakes, parrots all in glass fronted pens so you had a good view of everything, but the props around the animal house was more like something from willy wonka, surreal but pleasing to the eye.
We finished up with about an hour to go to the show, had the chance to have photos taken with the elephants who were giving rides to others.
Amazing creatures, I would recommend having you photo take with the elephants who are giving rides, the trainer asked if we would like him to take some photos for us on our phone, we gave the elephant 100baht who took it and gave it to the trainer, such a gentle creature for such a big animal, there were official photos taken further in the park but at a cost of 700baht, so we definitely got the best deal.

With the show about to start we joined the usual follow the yellow brick road cue, obligingly handed in our iphone to the well organised staff( there are no cameras, phones, tech allowed in the theatre) I assume this is so the park can monopolise on their photos, your not forced to buy anything and other than the worse rude arrogant people in. Rush to get out a relieve their tech we had a wonderful time.
The show was great, a very vibrant eye catching show, if anything, there was too much going on for quite a it of it, trapeze, magic,dancing as well as amazing stage propping just mDe this a magical evening out for us both.

“Great show not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

It is a great show not to be missed. It is an amazing mix of Culture, acrobatics, animal show and technolgy. There were more than 300 artists and animals performing in the show with utter prceision. They handled the 1000 + crowd with such ease, from seating, to the exit and souveniors. Camera are not allowed inside but we can buy a copy of the DVD of the show.

It ia an amazing show not to be missed especially children.

“Very good cultural show”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

I have enjoyed watching the Fantasea show. Very entertaining and also educational. THe lights and sounds effects are good, the performers are good including the elephants. Before the show starts, you can look around several shops and other entertainment. You can also avail of the show with buffet dinner. I only avail of the show because I couldn't make it to the 5pm pick-up if with dinner. The show starts at 9pm. Check out the schedule. They don't have shows on Thursday. I paid 1800 baht for the show including hotel transfers to and from the venue.
