Vana Nava Water Park – The Newest and the most elaborate Water Park in Thailand , Not so long ago (at the end of 2014) a new Water Park, and the most elaborate one to date, has opened at the Royal Summer resort town of Hua Hin Thailand.
The Vana Nava park joins 2 other new Water Parks located in the area, The Black Mountain Water Park and the Santorini Water Fantasy Park and an abundance of other attractions for youngsters and families in the Hua Hin Area.
The new park – “Vana Nava Jungle Water Park” is located at the heart of Hua Hin, only a few minutes’ drive from the Khao Takiab area, at the south side of the Hua Hin Resort Town.
