[HUA HIN] Santorini Park Cha-Am & Swiss Sheep Farm @ Thailand

After spending a wonderful day at Hua Hin, we spend the next day at Hua Hin visiting the attractions here.

Santorini Park (พบกับร้านค้าชั้นนำ และสินค้าระดับพรีเมี่ยม) is situated at Cha-Am, roughly 40 minutes driving from Hua Hin. En route from Bangkok to Hua Hin, it is actually located on the right side of the highway.



We hailed a tuk-tuk from Hua Hin to Santorini Park & Swiss Sheep Farm for 1000 baht, with the condition the driver will wait for us and send us back to hotel. It was the lowest among the other method of transportation we surveyed, taxi quoted 1600 baht while another tuk-tuk quoted 1200 baht.


Santorini Park is an amusement park resembles the architecture and design of Santorini, an island in Greece located in the southern Aegean Sea. The classic whitewashed buildings, colourfully painted windows, down to stone-paved paths and domed towers allow you to indulge in Santorini without having travelling physically there. It is more like an amusement park with the integration of retail shopping, thrill rides and arts.


We arrived earlier at the Park and managed to skip the queue for purchasing the ticket (50 bath/pax). The blue and white painted scenery outside the park had somehow made you feel this is not Thailand anymore.

The Swiss Sheep Farm is just opposite Santorini Park. Swiss Sheep Farm is an European style countryside farm with scenic meadows, nicely decorated with Halloween themed items in conjunction with Halloween day. A non so nature natural attraction that let you put away your fatigue, pretending to be shepherd surrounded by Asian sheep.
















Admission fee is 120 bath per pax and the entrance ticket comes with another ticket for sheep feeding session as well. Show the ticket to the sheep feeding counter to exchange for a small clump of grass. The sheep will be very excited by flocking the fence when they see you walked into the feeding area with grasses, knowing that they will get some favour from you if they managed to get your attention.

We headed back to Chitin Loft Hotel and take our lunch at a café decorated with Santorini theme as it was painted with white and blue. Seafood noodle shop (40 baht) and fried rice (40 baht) were nice and addition of pepper to both the dishes enhanced its flavors.





An ice cream stall just outside the stall immediately drew our attention after we checked out. Thai coconut ice cream definitely has its own nice and cooling taste, and the sweetness is just right at the level. It blended well when served either with bread or glutinous rice, and honestly one should not missed these desserts whenever travelling to Thailand.


Going back to Bangkok from Hua Hin is not that difficult. Spot this small stall man by a guy outside Hua Hin Colonnade Mall (just on the left side of Hua Hin main street, not far from Chitin Loft Hotel) and book a seat for the van for 180 baht per person. The journey will take approximately 3.5 hours but ours took more than 5 hours because it was a Friday and Halloween night when we reached Bangkok. What a bad timing!

    1. Shin, thanks for your compliment. I am glad you find our blog useful. We stayed at Citin Loft Hotel, then just walked to the main road, Phetkasen Road to hail a tuk tuk. You can always seek help from the hotel after you check in, they are very friendly to help. hehe

    1. Hi, I believe you will still need to get back huahin town to board the minivan back bangkok. That is why we booked the tuktuk where he wait us finish visiting Swiss Farm and Santorini Park to guarantee we have transport to go back.

    2. Actually it depends on your travelling pattern. Hiring a tuk tuk for a trip to both Santorini and Swiss Sheep farm is ok. Whereas a taxi is 1600 baht (Subject on your negotiation with taxi driver).
      If you plan to go else where in Hua Hin (e.g Pala-U waterfall, Huay MongKol), its more worth to hire a tour van for a full day at probably 4000 - 6000 baht (depend on where you are you exploring). The distance make a difference on the transport price.

    1. Hi Hasan, thanks for your support.

      1) We are not sure whether Santorini Park has a place to deposit luggage or not, but the problems could be solved by booking a taxi / tuk-tuk in advance. You may keep your luggage in the taxi / tuk-tuk. Just take the precious belongings with you.

      You can either book in advance the taxi at Santorini Park. There are aplenty you may engage or find them over the Internet. Share with them your itinerary. Otherwise you may try your luck by engaging to any taxi drivers there and be prepare to haggle for the price

      Q2 and Q3 pretty much can be answered in Q1. The taxi is willing to wait for you, and in fact can ferry you across all destinations back to Hua Hin town for a price.

      4) You may consider taxi or tuk-tuk. Both should cost about the same price, but go for taxi to seek for comfort factor.

    2. Thanks EEPIN, anyway I just read other blog that there is another cheaper transport, Local Orange Bus costs about 40 baht/person. But the problem is to cross the highway to catch bus again back to Hua Hin town center.

  6. You are welcome.

    Yes bus is always the cheaper option, if you do not mind spending some time waiting.
