Go ice-skating at Ice Arena Phuket.

Yes, outdoor activities are adventurous and fun, but Thailand’s heat can get unbearable. At times, you just want to cool off somewhere indoors. We have a perfect place for you; visit the Ice Arena Phuket and go ice-skating.

Are you new to ice-skating? Rent a practice penguin for yourself! Hold onto the penguin as you glide, and you won’t fall. Also, make sure to wear protective gear! But once you get the hang of it, you can chill (quite literally) as you glide through the ice surface. It is an exhilarating experience!

Adult: THB 450 per hour

Child: THB 350 per hour

Surf on endless waves at Surf House Phuket

While you’re in an island city, why don’t you go surfing? While the beaches receive monsoonal waves from May to October, at Surf House Phuket, you will not run out of waves to surf on.

You can also opt for flow-boarding, a hybrid of surfing, snowboarding, wakeboarding and skateboarding! The highlight of flow-boarding is that it’s unlimited to all ages; your young ones are also free to join. However, note that there are some restrictions based on your children’s height. First time? Don’t worry! Instructors will assist you and your children in taking your first steps, and you will soon be able to stand on your own. If you are afraid of falling over (which you most likely will), it won’t hurt so go fearless!

Price: Starting at THB 990 per hour

Address: 162/7 Thawewong Rd, Pa Tong, Kathu District, Chang Wat Phuket 83150
