Art in Paradise Pattaya is an illusion art museum. Visitors are meant to use the museum interactively by taking photos of each-other standing on, in front of or touching the paintings. It is conveniently located, air conditioned, and suitable for all ages, but is especially popular with the younger age group.
Officially opened in April 2012, it covers 5,800 square meters and cost approximately 50 million Baht.
Internally it is divided into several rooms, with each room having 3D art on the floor and walls. This includes world famous locations from the Venice canals to Egyptian Pharaohs to everyday items such as swimming pools and animals.
In most areas there are instructions on where to stand to capture the best result and ideas of what the finished photo should look like.
Note: In addition to Art in Paradise Pattaya, you also have Art in Paradise Bangkok and Art in Paradise Chiang Mai. They are all similar so I recommend you visit whichever one you are closest to.
I would advise that you pick your time of day / week/ year for visiting as sometimes it can be a little overcrowded in the holiday periods where you will often get busloads of tourists. If you arrive, and it looks crowded, I would recommend that if possible you come back at another time. It becomes almost impossible to take a pic with hundreds of people jammed into a room and blocking your view. Generally you will find early morning or late afternoon – early evenings are best.
Also be advised that if you are not a Thai national or have a Thai work permit then Art in Paradise Pattaya will charge you more. I do not have a problem with this, as most westerners would not be prepared to work for Thai wages. Just a heads up.
