You would think that art galleries would be the last place to go to have some fun. But a new gallery in Pattaya called “Art in Paradise” is proving to be a big hit with Thai and international tourists. This is because they have over 100 three-dimensional paintings that are very interactive. As we all know, Thai people love taking pictures of themselves at various locations and posting them on social media. With these paintings, you don’t just stand idly by, you interact with them and become a part of the bigger picture. Judging by the larger number of photos posted on Instagram, Art in Paradise is a big hit with Thais.
The art gallery is divided into ten zones with themes such as underwater, wonders of the world and natural environment. If you want to visit to take pictures, probably best not to go during a Thai public holiday as there might be queues at some paintings for picture taking. Art in Paradise is on Pattaya Second Road (see map). It is open every day from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. with last admission at 8 p.m. The entrance fee for Thais is 150 Baht for adults and 100 Baht for children. For foreigners it is a steep 500 Baht for adults and 300 Baht for children. You can see more pictures on this web page. If you have been already, let us know if its good value for money.
