When you are out and about in Phuket, you can end up with so many things to do that you suddenly feel overwhelmed. However, when it starts raining, you might find yourself locked away in your accommodation, thinking there is nothing you can do until the rain stops. Fortunately, there are still plenty of things you can enjoy even when the storms hit the island! From skating on an ice rink to climbing up an artificial rock-climbing wall, here are the things you can do even when the rain falls on Phuket!
1. Enjoy the ice
Even in a country that’s notoriously known for its heat, ice can still be found! No, we aren’t talking about the freezer. Rather, we’re talking about a massive ice skating rink. If you suddenly have the urge to ice skate when the storm hits, then head straight for Phuket’s Ice Arena! Whether it is you’re a seasoned professional or a newbie looking to enjoy the activity, the arena can accommodate. You don’t need to bring any equipment with you either. All you need to do is to show up and enjoy. If by any chance, you want to train, there are trainers out there who are more than happy to get you standing on two feet and zooming around on the ice.
2. Trick your eyes
Want to get your creative juices flowing? If so, then pay a visit to Phuket Trickeye Museum. Here, you will run into various “3D” paintings that blur the line between the real world and the fantasy world. With how the paintings are set up, you become part of a picture, whether you are battling it out with Mike Tyson or riding on a magical carpet. Do not forget to bring a camera and snap photos to get your friends jealous of your fantastic adventure.
3. Scale some walls
Are your muscles restless? They will get plenty of attention at Rebel Rock Climbing. There, you will find plenty of walls ready to be scaled! If you have never done rock-climbing before, do not worry. They have plenty of classes to help you understand the basics of rock-climbing to ensure safety whatever you are planning to climb.
4. Live upside-down
Ever wondered what it feels like to be spiderman? Well, do not expect to be swinging around across New York. Instead, you will be walking on the ceiling in The Upside-Down House. Everything is normal in this building except that everything is upside down, giving the illusion that you are the one upside down. From kitchens to bedrooms, to even the cars and tuk-tuks, everything here is the wrong way up. With some camera trickery, you can indeed fool your buddies into thinking you are walking on the ceiling.
Even when the rain pours, the fun never stops in Phuket. There are plenty of things you can do indoors while the outside is getting drenched. With that in mind, if you are in Phuket or at least planning to go to this amazing place, do not forget to check out the places we have shared with you. Rain or shine, they are excellent go-to’s for a wonderful time, especially if you have brought along your family.
