WATERPARK WARS Phuket Vs Pattaya
Pattaya's surging tourism market is set to have a new demand driver when the Ramayana Waterpark opens late next year.
The project, which is touted to be Southeast Asia's largest water attraction, is being developed by a Russian group together with an experienced Canadian firm providing expertise.
While Phuket's Splash Jungle has gotten mixed reviews, the Pattaya project will benefit from a far larger catchment of tourists and the close proximity to urban Bangkok's large population base. Call it location, location, location.
