Chocolate Ville is a mini themed dining park designed to look like an old European village, complete with chapel, barn, historical clock tower, railway station and candy-coloured shops. With its quaint European-inspired landscape, you probably don’t feel like you’re in Bangkok at all! I was really looking forward to visit Chocolate Ville as I’ve seen so many beautiful pictures of the park posted on Instagram. 😍
Even better, I know that this place offers both Thai and International dishes. So, I looked forward to an enjoyable dinner with a great view and plenty of photo opportunities. But when I told Edison that there’s NO chocolate at Chocolate Ville, his reaction was like “WHAT???!!!”. The name sounds like a big chocolate park to him, and he’s expecting to have at least a chocolate buffet LOL.
Chocolate Ville is a well-known tourist attraction in Bangkok, and they have been operating since 2011. As I’ve mentioned, Chocolate Ville is just a name and there is no shop or anything that sells chocolate here. Nonetheless, it’s certainly a beautiful place that you shouldn’t miss in Bangkok – especially if you have kids (even though there’s no chocolate 😆).
Chocolate Ville is located at the outskirt of Bangkok. The easiest way to get there is by taxi. We took a taxi from our hotel at Pullman Bangkok King Power and it costs 248 Baht (meter fare 193 Baht + toll fee 50 Baht). That’s ~$10 for 30 mins ride. Interestingly in Bangkok, passenger has to pay for toll fee separately if going by expressway. It’s nice to have small change to pay the tolls but if you don’t, the taxi driver will pay and then add the charge to your fare.
Talking about taxi, communication can be a gas majority of the Bangkok’s taxi drivers speak little English. Therefore, I would advise you to prepare your destination address in Thai so that the driver can get there accurately. Alternatively, it will be easier to use Grab Taxi.
Now, the best thing about Chocolate Ville – there is NO entrance fee. Well, it’s not really a theme park (there is no rides), but more like a themed dining park that can accommodate hundreds of customers. Should I go there, you might ask? Oh my gosh, you should! Chocolate Ville is the best themed restaurant we’ve visited so far. The food is great and there’s no other place like this in Bangkok or even Singapore.
