The beginning of the Teddy Bear Museum
“For over 10 years, I had the opportunity to travel to Thailand several times so I like many thing in Thailand and Thai people is friendly, kind and generous so I want to live in Thailand. If I can live in Thailand, I wanted to do something that can bring happiness to Thai people to return Thailand and Thai people so I have been thinking and build the Teddy Bear Museum. I think Thai people and foreigners who travel to Pattaya will like the Teddy Bear Museum. Although Pattaya is a tourist attraction but it not has this Teddy Bear exhibition like this. The contrast is Teddy Bear Museums can be seen in Korea.”

Who made the doll in the museum?
