Fave Chat Creatures Come to Life in ‘Line Village’ (Photos)

BANGKOK — Take a photo with Choco the fashionista bear in her bedroom. Tell Cony the bunny to stop running around you and go dance in a corner for your amusement. See Moon dressed as an astronaut on a mission to explore, well, the moon.

At Line Village, an indoor theme park opening Friday at the Siam Square One shopping mall, these and other “sticker” characters from the massively popular chat application are brought to life to touch in real and virtual forms.

Located above a Line merchandise store that opened last year, the venue is separated into a series of “rooms” belonging to different characters, each decorated with furniture and trinkets that show what their everyday life must look like in the Line universe.

A 2017 data says there are more than 44 million users of Line chat app in Thailand.

It opens to the public on Friday. Line Village is, sadly, one of those establishments with a dual “farang price” system: 990 baht for foreigners and 850 baht for Thais. Tickets for foreign and Thai children below 140 centimeters in height are 790 baht and 650 baht, respectively. Kids under 90 centimeters enter for free.
