New Thailand Ramayana Waterpark officially opens near Pattaya
Thailand’s newest family-friendly theme park officially opened its gates yesterday. Ramayana Waterpark is spread over a 40-acre site near the eastern seaboard town of Pattaya and has features to suit all age groups from toddlers to senior citizens.
Tourists travelling to Ramayana will find an exhilarating double-wave pool, two zones dedicated to youngsters and 21 water rides designed to offer everything from light rolls to heart-stopping thrills. The Lazy River is lined with magical grottos and waterspouts.
Ramayana is named after an ancient Sanskrit legend and many of its adornments are themed on this. Ramayana also offers visitors the chance of meeting and greeting elephants, getting a soothing massage and enjoying a delicious meal.
The Shop at Ramayana is stocked with premium quality swimwear, shirts, hats and beach-sandals. Logoed bags and Ramayana themed toys are the ideal keepsake or gift for loved ones.
Ramayana Waterpark is open every day between 10:00 and 18:00. It is 20 minutes by car from downtown Pattaya and just off the main highway to Rayong and Baan Phe. The latter is the departure point for ferries to Koh Samet. 12GO ASIA offers convenience when buying travel tickets to these locations.
