As of February 2nd, Phuket announced that a new tourist attraction based on the histories of Thai mythologies has opened. It is located in the Central Floresta mall and has a Tribhum theme, with three distinct themes; the Underwater World, the Silver Forest World and the magic Forest World. The capacity of the new attraction is large, as one million people are expected to visit it on an annual basis. This new attraction highlights a shift in Phuket tourist destinations; older tourist spots in Phuket were based on the beaches there, but more and more new attractions are being added into the mall area. In fact, a new aquarium is expected to open in the Central Floresta area in the near future, as well.
It is unconfirmed if they are gong with the infamous Thai double-pricing.
“For thousands of years, the legend of two mythical races, Garuda and Naga has been existing in ancient cultures across the world. The people in Suvarnabhumi countries including Thailand also inherit the belief of the magical power of the Great Garuda and the King of Nagas and a tale of the mythical land where humans and animals could not reach. Are they the real creatures?”
