For the ultimate in sheer Phuket Entertainment, head down to the south coast of Thailand, where the welcome sign is always on. Pleasure and joy are the only prerequisites allowed at this lively seaside resort. Nothing is short of exhilarating with so many fun and leisure activities for you to enjoy. There are also physical enterprising ventures for you to indulge your every whim.
FantaSea cultural theme park at Kamala beach is truly a spectacular all-round entertainment. This magnificent park is inspired by Thailand's rich and exotic heritage and has a fantastic fun theme to go. It's a must see for the whole family.
FantaSea at Kamala Beach
The Palace of the Elephants Theatre is definitely the highlight of the evening's entertainment at FantaSea. This Las Vegas style theatrical show should certainly take your breath away as it did mine.
Once seated and as the show begins, you will witness some magnificent elephants as they make their way to the stage. This truly spellbinding show combines Thai culture with amazing illusions that are almost beyond belief. I have taken many a friend to FantaSea and still manage to have plenty of fun each time. Phuket entertainment at its very best.
The show is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes long with two shows nightly. It may be advisable to pay the little extra for the VIP seats should you want a better view of the performances. It is unfortunate (or fortunately) that you are not allowed to take any photos inside the theatre so I cannot show you any but below is a photo taken outside at the entrance to the elephant theatre.
Phuket Entertainment for Kids - Fantasea
FantaSea is a fabulous fantasy land theme park and pure Phuket
entertainment for kids of all ages. Kids can literally go crazy in the
vast show grounds while entertaining themselves with so many different
forms of amusements. And with all the exciting features going on here,
kids will surely be able to keep themselves busy for hours on end. It's
just like being at the carnival with plenty of fun stuff to do including
loads of gaming arcades to participate in.
The Similan Entertainment Center
for one, is a kind of undersea arcade at FantaSea which kids will just
love and where they can join in the fun and games with all the friendly
sea creatures around. In fact, everyone of all ages can join in and test
their skills with all these new and exciting games on offer.
The Tiger Jungle Adventure is another not-to-be-missed form of entertainment at FantaSea for kids where they will be able to see loads of gentle creatures in a sort of theatrical safari. This is a concept that will take you on a journey of 12 mythical and exotic scenes. Apparently inspired by ancient Thai folklore/legends and starring local animals, coupled with a special cutting edge visual and audio effects. Take a look at the video above for these and other exciting attractions.
Elephant Rides are available for leisurely strolls around the grounds as well as plenty of local handicraft talent to inspire all ages. Kids will have their hands full while trying to absorb all the thrills and spills.
I would try to get an early tour bus to take you there even if you go to the later show at the Elephant Theater. If you have your own transport, even better. From Patong beach the trip by car will take about an hour.
Golden Kinnaree Buffet Restaurant
The Golden Kinnaree Buffet Restaurant is a 4,000 seat buffet restaurant at the Fantasea Entertainment Center offering both Thai and international cuisine. I must say that I was both highly impressed with the magnificence of
this place and the genuine hospitality of the Thai hosts. The wonderful
vegetarian spread that I was able to indulge in was especially welcome
and should I add quite, delicious. I'm sure you too will be truly
impressed as I was. The meals at this restaurant are included in the
price of your ticket to the theatre.
Booking your tour from this page (at no extra cost to you) would not only give me a little pocket money, but you'd be helping me maintain this blog so that I can continue giving you more Thailand travel info.

Phuket Entertainment - Outdoor Adventure
World Bungee Patong is one of two bungee jumping locations in
Phuket for all who dare to hurl themselves off into the unknown. The
site is situated on Soi Kepsap, 2 Sai Namyen Road, Patong Beach and is
open daily from 10:00 am until 7:00 pm.
Jungle Bungee Jump
is the other bungee jumping site where you can hurl yourself off from a
great height. It is a 50 metre jump from a tower over water situated in
the Kathu District of Phuket. This is Phuket entertainment at its very
Patong Go-Kart Speedway is a Phuket entertainment
enterprise for you if you love the thrill of go-karting. You will find
this 600 meter track at the base of Patong Hill. The speedway is open
daily from 10:00 am until 7:00 pm.
If this is not
enough, then you could always go and explore the island's forests and
rubber plantations. Why not hire an all-terrain vehicle and go off road.
Perhaps even better, why not simply go on an ATV tour.
Simon Cabaret Show
Phuket Entertainment - Cabaret Shows
Simon Cabaret is the largest ladyboy cabaret attraction in
town and by far the very best of the best extravaganza in Phuket. I
would highly recommend that you go and see this one while you are here, especially if you didn't get to see
Tiffany's Cabaret in Pattaya. There are few shows that beat this one. You will appreciate
the exceptional talent that these performers put into their shows.
is a ladyboy show set on a very small stage in a comfortable
environment. The show offers a superb intimate feel. The venue has an
adjoining restaurant with a full bar service, although dining is
optional. Sphinx Cabaret is situated within walking distance from the
main entertainment area of Patong.
I have to admit that this
particular show was a little disappointing compared to the other ladyboy
shows I had seen in Phuket. Perhaps I was just a little tired from all
the other activities of the day as I kept falling asleep during the
various performances. To be quiet honest, the show was not as good as I
had hoped it would be but then again, you be the judge should you decide
to go to this one.
Moulin Rouge Cabaret is a highly recommendable Phuket entertainment venue and the performances the ladyboys present here, are top class and a lot of fun. The shows continue all night long which is great if you want to pop in anytime and leave anytime. And best of all, you are welcome to stay for as long as you like which means you can watch the shows over and over again should you so wish. You are only required to pay once you leave. And don't forget the ladyboy tips later.
You get to sit on some comfortable sofas and order drinks whenever you like. Moulin Rouge is not advertised, but you'll find it on the first Soi just off Bungla Road in Patong. The same street is crammed with lots of small beer bars and ladyboys who attract many a tourist. And if that's not enough visit Phuket Nightlife for more erotic entertainment.
