With its photogenic and aesthetic Greek charm, Santorini Park is a beautiful place to experience Greece in Cha-Am without visiting the country itself. Hua Hin is a spectator’s paradise. The park has an extensive list of restaurants, shops, and exciting rides. Its Greek charm and architecture make it an unusual sight, mainly because its setting differs from the country it is inspired. There are five prime entertainment zones in Santorini Park.
The park area with amusement rides, the village area with archetypal Greek houses, the relaxation area with restaurants, boutiques and spa centres, the activity area with a variety of outdoor activity options, and the weekend art market with flea markets provide incredible recreational opportunities for families, couples and friends equally. Blue and white buildings, murals, sculptures, artificial fountains, windmills and lush landscaping that mimic typical Santorini architecture provide a picturesque backdrop for photos.
