Gray days in Phuket and what to do
IT’S a thunderstorm and the island is soaked with the rain all day long. The temperature is chiller than ever, and the outdoor activities are not ideal during this time of the year. If you are traveling in Phuket, here is the list of activities that will keep you entertained until the sun shines on the beaches again.
Thai Cooking Class
When visiting Thailand, everyone’s bucket list would have Thai food. Eating out and experiencing the fine dining at Thai restaurants would be a great choice but learning how to make it yourself will be the skill that allows you to create this unforgettable dining experience everywhere you go.
There are plenty of Thai cooking classes spread around the island of Phuket and many of them are private lessons teaching classic recipes such as Tom Yum Goong, Pad Thai, Massaman Curry, Panaeng Curry, Green Curry, Tom Kha Gai, Som Tum and different kinds of spicy salad, while also taking you to local markets to learn how to select neat and fresh products. Practice it, nail it, and surprise your loved ones with a special dining experience to remember.
Not to mention shopping and movies, you can also enjoy the other activities such as bowling, which is a popular indoor entertainment slash sport that you can enjoy with a group of friends.
No matter if you are a world-class champion or beginner, it’s always fun to roll the ball and hit (or miss) the pins then shout out or laugh with your friends.
There are 2 main avenues in Phuket, including the top floor of Junceylong mall in Patong, the same floor as the theater and the top floor of Big C mall in Phuket town. Moreover, there are game zones; you can visit the XD mini theater and Shooting Café for some adrenaline rush on the 4th floor of the Junceylong mall.
Phuket Trickeye Museum
Located in the town of Phuket, the museum features a number of 3D illusion and mirage that plays with your vision and camera angles. This place is an amusement playground for all ages and perfect for a rainy-day escape.
Upside Down House
Aka Baan Teelangka, which means upside down house, the house with a roof plunging down on the ground offers you a fun walk through the 3 stories that feature rooms like kitchen, toilets, bedrooms, living area, just like an ordinary house, but inverted. The perfect opportunity for a fun photoshoot during the day. Upside Down House is located on By-pass Road, very noticeable, right on the side of the main road.
