Low Season? Not at "Art in Paradise"


Evil Penevil

Recommended Posts

Art in Paradise is a 3D art gallery on Soi 1, about 100 meters in from  2nd Road. It is located on the east stretch of Soi 1 (on your right [edit in] as you ride the baht bus north on 2nd Road), not the section of Soi 1 that runs between Beach Road and 2nd Rd.

The gallery bills itself as the "world's largest 3D art museum."  I have no idea if that is true, but it is pretty big and has several hundred paintings and other displays on two floors.  The paintings create optical illusions which result in some cool effects and photos.

The gallery also attracts big crowds, mostly Thais and Koreans (it is owned by a Korean group), but also quite a few Russians.  Admission is 150 baht for Thais and 350 baht for foreigners.

I went there with two Thai girls and one reacted very strongly to the "double pricing.  She told them that I had lived in Pattaya for 2 1/2 years and should pay the Thai price, even if I didn't have my passport or other document with me.  She got pretty insistent and the ticket seller finally relented.  That probably had more to do with the people backing up behind us than the strength of her arguments,  but in any case, I got in for 150 baht.

What's also interesting is there's a "spa" and massage parlor right across the street from the gallery.

More pics from inside the gallery.  Thai girls love the place and want their pictures taken in front of just about every painting. It takes 60 to 90 minutes to do the whole gallery, depending on the crowds.  It's open 9.00 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily and is busiest in the afternoon and early evening.

Yes, Soi 1 between 2nd and Soi Phrettrakun (comes before 3rd Road in that part of town). Go early, as Art in Paradise fills up later in the day.

The red dot marks the approximate spot.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
