Three Kingdoms Park

Three Kingdoms Theme Park

The Three Kingdoms Theme Park near Pattaya was built by the descendents of a very successful Thai/Chinese businessman.

Not too easy to find, but the Three Kingdoms Theme Park is well worth the effort.

The Three Kingdoms Theme Park is an inspiring place to visit - not only for the superb landscape and architecture of Thai/Chinese origin, but also for the philosophy which is the basis of the Three Kingdoms Theme Park.

The beautifully landscaped gardens are a fitting backdrop for the array of Chinese and Thai-inspired buildings and walkways situated here.

The build quality and superb materials used, set the scene for the overall effect of this beautiful area.

The Three Kingdoms Theme Park was built by Mr. Kiarti Sifuengfung, to celebrate his life and philosophy and dedicated to the people of Thailand and beyond.

Pattaya Three Kingdoms Theme ParkThere are some huge, beautiful wall paintings in the Theme Park, that tell of the epic tale of Romance of The Three Kingdoms - one of China's greatest semi-historical stories.

Some visitors (most are Thai or Chinese) come here just to visit the splendour of the Three Kingdoms Theme Park, but most come to pray and make a wish, to the big goddess of mercy 'Guan Yin'.

This sculpture, which is made from white marble, is situated in one of the three Chinese-style pagodas.

The main features of the Park, are the three Chinese-style pagoda buildings – each with different philosophies and meanings. The central Pagoda is the most important – other than the fact that is holds a statue of Mr Kiarti. This Pagoda has four floors accessible to visitors – each with a different theme within the overall concept of the park.

The Main Central Pagoda (ground floor)

As well as the imposing statue of Kiarti Sifuengfung, this floor is home to an awe-inspiring ‘letter’ from Mr Kiarti, putting forward his views on what one should – and should not – do. It is written in Chinese, Thai and English. This letter stands several meters tall. We will print the full details on this page for your information.

There are twelve priceless statues of Chinese people who are an integral part of the story of the Three Kingdoms. They are …
Lui bei, Kuan U, Zhang Hui, Kgebgg, Lil po, Tung TO, Tiaw Sian, Jocho, Juyee, Sun Kuan, Su Ma Jiaw and Hua To. The statues were sculpted over a period of eight months by a professional pottery specialist bought in from China. All are housed behind glass screens.

Second and Third Floors

These floors are dedicated to the story of the Three kingdoms, and illustrated on wall paintings (murals) in oil paints with a total length of 100 meters. The murals are set in sixteen separate but linked parts, and were painted by the famous Chinese artist Zang Kexin. They took five years to finish and were painted during 1994-1998.

Fourth Floor

This floor offers great view of the park – and beyond – from the exterior parapet/balcony. There is a floor sign that can easily be mistaken to mean ‘NO photography’! In fact it simply denotes that it is a good place to take photos from.

Within the top floor interior, are Hor Phra Kaew – a Buddha Image, several relics of note, and two further important Chinese statues.

The Foundation Pagoda.

This Pagoda holds statues of eighteen saints, and the theme is of Exposition and Activity.

Around the perimeter of the grounds - within an attractive covered walkway, there is a huge ceramic tiled mural, which tells the story of The three Kingdoms over 56 fifty six separate but joined story paintings.

The Mural - the longest tiled painting in the world - stretches for 224 meters in several ground level balconies.

Each story has a descriptive plaque written in Thai and English to enable the visitor to understand the story - and the philosophy behind the superb Three Kingdoms Theme Park.

The ceramic tiles took over a year to design, manufacture and paint.
