Attraction Details :
Sukhawadee House is a mansion by the Pattaya Sea owned by Mr. Panya Chotitawan, the owner of Saha Farm, one of the biggest agricultural product exporters of Thailand.
The idea of building the house occurred in 2000 when it was a huge economic crisis. Many businesses in Thailand, from small to big, collapsed and were taken over by foreign companies. Mr. Panya, therefore, decided to build this luxurious castle with over hundred people working together in unity. This was to show that Thai people were still in harmony and had potential and dignity no less than other nations.
Sukhawadee House is located on Sukhumvit Road at 129- kilometer stone. It covers the area of 80 Rais (128,000 square metres) with 400 meter long beach and consists of group of pink and blue contemporary buildings.
