Bangkok offers a variety of temples, shrines and cultural experiences that are uniquely Thai. Art in Paradise Bangkok is none of those things BUT when the sun is beaming and you are looking for a fun activity to do with your partner or family, this is a great place to get photo happy!
What is Art in Paradise?
Art in Paradise is a 3D art gallery along Sukhumvit Road in Bangkok. Here, you can get creative and take photos with the different backdrops, paintings and props; making for an unreal photo.
What types of photos can I get?
With fantasy lands taken from Alice in Wonderland, rickety bridges over giant dark canyons, leaping or attacking animals and adventure scenes making you look like an Olympic snowboarder/surfer etc, you can get any type of photo you want.
In each section, you will find a sign which gives examples of other peoples photos, giving you an idea of how to take the perfect shot. Plus, look out for the stickers on the floor, they tell you where you need to stand to get the right angle.
Plus, you can also opt for a video of your experience, which includes moving parts of the photo. Download the app to get moving clips.
