The fun and culture park tourist attraction will open its gates to visitors on May 21, said former Deputy Prime Minister Suwat Liptapanlop, who presided over the “opening ceremony” at the Siam Paragon mall in the capital. Mr Suwat served as Deputy Prime Minister under the Thaksin Shinawatra administration in 2006.

Phuket Governor Narong Woonciew flew to Bangkok to join the event. Also present was Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Deputy Governor for Domestic Marketing Thapanee Kiatpaiboon, Phuket Tourist Association President Bhummikitti Ruktaengam 

Executive Director of Proud Group, Proudputh Liptapanlop, also an Oxford graduate and daughter of former PM Suwat, was also present for the occasion, as was Brian Walker Smith of premier water park designers Whitewater West Industries Co Ltd, which designed the Andmanda project.

The ​​​​58-rai development, under construction for years, aims to be a one-stop entertainment center, “combining good culture and various points of interest”, said Mr Suwat.

The project features three key elements: a water park, a hotel and lifestyle retail area, he said.

“It will become one of the destinations in Phuket that everyone must visit, and will be an important driving force in the revitalisation of the tourism economy in Phuket, which is ready to welcome tourists from all over the world and hoping to receive 1 million tourists a year, in line with and supporting Thailand’s tourism policy,” Mr Suwat said.
