Ice Skating in Phuket
Ice Arena is the latest attraction in Phuket and it came a bit as a surprise… an ice rink on a hot tropical island is definitely unexpected. Great for kids and for some family time, ice skating is a fun activity to escape the rain or even the heat! It’s not really cheap but it’s definitely fun.
Ice Arena is in Boat Lagoon, a well-known marina on the east coast of the island, just a bit south of Phuket town. It’s a little far from most beaches and most hotels but any taxi or Tuk Tuk driver will know the place.
Phuket Ice Arena is open every day of the week and offers a range of options. Most travellers will pick the hourly option (590 baht for adults and 350 baht for children) but if you are here for a while you can learn to skate properly with personal coach (1,000 baht). If you want to learn a little more seriously you can take a 10 private sessions at 10,000 baht (ultimately it’s not cheaper). You can even take a figure skating or a hockey course! Each will cost you 5,000 baht per month but you can get some seriously cool skills… and bragging photos!
Once you are done with all this excitement, you can take a break at the restaurant serving Thai and International food on the second floor.
