If you are a culture vulture and want to learn more about Thailand’s illustrious history, visiting the Three Kingdoms Theme Park Pattaya will be an interesting day of fun and education. If you are traveling through Pattaya on a budget and want to visit a cultural hotspot that is great value for money, this is the Pattaya attraction for you.
Thailand has a very interesting history filled to the brim with fantastic war stories about historic battles that have become legendary through the ages. Thailand’s history is intrinsically linked with Chinese culture, and still is today, and this is how the story of the Three Kingdoms is told right across SE-Asia.
The temple complex of the Three Kingdoms park Pattaya is located just a 15-minute drive outside of Pattaya and is situated in the countryside near to Lake Mabprachan and Siam Country Club, so it’s easy to find and visit, even for holidaymakers in the region.
The Story of the Three Kingdoms Theme Park Pattaya
The actual park was built a Thai-Chinese family in the honor of the late father of the family ‘Kiarti Srifuengfung’, and was an ode to tell the story of the classic Chinese novel, “Romance of The Three Kingdoms”.
The story itself is a historical novel written in 14th century China and depicts the turbulent end of the Han dynasty in 169 AD and is an epic war story. The Three Kingdoms Theme Park was created as an ode to the age-old epic.
Inside Three Kingdoms Theme Park Pattaya
When you visit the park, you are greeted by 3 main pagodas, which are very interesting in their own rights. The main pagoda has 4 floors, and if you go up to the fourth floor, you can enjoy some spectacular views overlooking the magnificence of the park.
Did you know that the Three Kingdoms Theme Park Pattaya is home to the longest corridor of hand-painted tiles in the world? Strange record to hold I know, but a record regardless. The tiles actually depict the entire Three Kingdoms story.
The park itself is not massive but will take approximately 2 or 3 hours to traverse, which means it’s ideal for a morning or afternoon visit.
Three Kingdoms Park is one of the lesser-known Pattaya attractions and finds it hard to compete with some of the largest ones like the Cartoon Network Water Park or Silverlake Vineyard, but it is very educational. The park enjoys a Chinese Feng Shui layout that was created using special geometric ideals that go back thousands of years.
The park covers a massive 36 rai and is a great place to catch some cool photos to post on social media. The decorations and views are very photogenic.
How to Find Three Kingdoms Theme Park
The Three Kingdoms Theme Park Pattaya is located approximately a 15-minute drive from downtown Pattaya. If you are travelling by car, head to large red Siam Country Club archway on Sukhumvit Road and head towards the golf club. Once you are near to Siam Country Club and Lake Mabrachan, the Three Kingdoms is approximately 2km from here and is signposted.
You can also visit the park via taxi, which could cost you in the region of 500 THB return. We would recommend you hire a car or bike and explore the countryside near to Siam Country Club for the best experience.
There are double pricing standards in Thailand where at some attractions foreigners pay more than local Thais. The entrance price for a Thai adult is 80 THB, while Thai kids can get in for 40 THB. If you are a westerner, ticket prices for adults are 150 THB, with prices at 80 THB for Western kids. Double pricing systems are common in Thailand, so don’t be put off by it.
