Santorini Park is a Santorini-inspired theme park in Hua Hin. But should you include Santorini Park in your visit to Hua Hin?
In Hua Hin, there are many attractions which are inspired by famous places around the world. There are Swiss-themed farm, Middle Eastern-themed farm, Venice-themed theme park and Santorini-inspired theme park, among others. During our visit to Hua Hin, we decided to include Santorini Park in our visit. But is it worth a visit? Let’s read further about this unique attraction.
The morning of our visit
On our second day in Hua Hin, we decided to have fun visiting several places of attraction in Hua Hin. The first on our list was Santorini Park. The Park is not situated exactly in Hua Hin but it is situated in another district called Cha-am. However, it is an easy drive from Hua Hin to Cha-am and we considered the visit as part of a mini road trip during a trip.
From Resort de Paskani where we were staying, we used Waze to find our way to the Park. Driving in Thailand is our personal favourite because apart from free roads, the highways here are very well-maintained. Besides, the scenery along the way is totally different from Malaysia. If driving in Malaysia means you will have to tolerate some hills and the views are mostly hilly, here in Hua Hin, it is mostly flat terrain.
After 40 minutes of driving, finally we arrived at Santorini Park.
When we arrived
When we arrived, the place was quite empty. We made it a point to arrive early in the morning so that there will be lesser crowd. Boy, we were so glad that we made such a decision. We then paid THB 500 per pax for the entrance fee inclusive of two free rides in the Park.
Yes, Santorini Park, apart from a themed shopping avenue, is also more or less a theme park. There is a waterpark but it was closed during our visit. So, we just entered the main park and we were awed with what we saw.
Santorini Park has stick truly to the Santorini themed by having everything done right. As you go into the main area, you can’t help but to admire the whitewashed buildings, the blue painted windows and the stone-paved paths.
It is one of the best places for you to get that perfect OOTD photos in Hua Hin!
The Zones at the Park
There are several zones in the Park and each zone provides different kinds of entertainment for the visitors.
The zones are:
- Park Zone: where all the entertainment rides are located at. We used the free ride tickets to ride on the double-decker carousel and the Ferris wheel. It was fun!
- Village Zone: everything about the Santorini architecture and its coastal vibes. There are more than 100 stores selling everything from apparels to souvenirs. It is also the best way to seek shelter from Cha-am’s heat as the stores are air-conditioned!
- Rest Zone: where all the F&B outlets are located. There is also a prayer room for Muslims.
- Activities Zone: outdoor area with outdoor games such as chess and tic-tac-toe!
Our views of Santorini Park
Having visited Santorini Park, we are of the view that this is a nice place for you to visit and spend an hour or two especially with your family members. The place is very well-maintained and they even have a hotel on-site. The only downside of the Park is the weather because when it is in the middle of afternoon, the heat can be unbearable. In fact, I sweat a lot when I was on the Ferris wheel!
Nevertheless, as a place inspired by Santorini, Santorini Park has done a good job in creating a theme park which is fun and at the same time, gorgeous.
