Top 5 Things to do When it rains in Bangkok -Don't Let it Rain Your Parade!

So, you're in Bangkok ready to experience all its wonders but the rain gods decide to throw a party. Don't worry, come rain or shine, there's plenty to do in the buzzing capital city of Thailand.


Go Underwater Without Getting Wet!

Visit SEA LIFE Bangkok Ocean World, the largest aquarium in Southeast Asia! Located in the basement of the Siam Paragon Shopping Mall, the aquarium is home to hundreds of different species that are kept within an astounding 5,000,000 liters of water! See a variety of sea and freshwater life from some of the world's deadliest predators such as the piranha to the cutest of creatures such as penguins.

Some of the many attractions of SEA LIFE Bangkok Ocean World include Penguin Ice Adventure, the colorful jellyfish section and the Tropical Ocean exhibit that gives panoramic views of coral and fish species. Don't miss the Shark Walk where daring souls can walk atop a thin sheet of acrylic that covers the cage where leopard sharks, Blacktip Reef Sharks, and the ferocious Tiger Shark swim underneath! Undoubtedly the best attraction of the aquarium is the Ocean Tunnel, a spectacular underwater tunnel where a variety of sea life such as manta rays, sharks and much more; move around just inches away from you.


Treat Yourself to a Spa Treatment

Picture this, the gentle sound of raindrops on your ears and the soothing feel of expert hands working their magic on your tensed muscles, simply blissful... So, indulging in a massage among your rainy day activities will be one of the best. A luxury hotel in Bangkok such as the Chatrium Hotel Riverside Bangkok will be the perfect place for you to head over to, due to the high standards of service as well as the reputation. Places like the Nemita Spa offer both Thai massages as well as aromatherapy and beauty treatments so you have the freedom of choice. However, it's best recommended to try the Thai massages as where else can you get the best Thai massages than in Thailand?!


Travel and shop from around the world- In one spot!

Yep, you heard it right. Terminal 21 is a cutting-edge concept that brings some of the world's most popular cities under one roof. Occupied within a mammoth building with a glass-and-steel façade, this mega mall is located along Sukhumvit Road in the Asoke intersection of Bangkok. Once you go inside, you will be able to wander around a maze of kiosks in Tokyo, take a stroll along London's Carnaby Street, bargain for some good deals in an Istanbul zouk and relish some fish and chips at the Fisherman's Wharf in San Fransisco!

In correspondence with its name, the Terminal 21 shopping mall has floor signs signalling the arrivals in particular cities with crisscrossing escalators and electronic display boards all of which gives the impression that you are in an airport travelling around the world!


Stuff Your Face While Snuggling Up To A Pet!

Pet cafés are all the rage now and in Bangkok, you'll find one of the best. The Little Zoo Café down Sukothai Avenue in Muang Thong Thani, serves up some really good coffee and treats that you'll want to munch and munch, but, it's not the food that the best part about this café of course. The Little Zoo Café has a wonderful assortment of cute critters from meerkats to owls, fennec foxes, raccoons, corgis, cats and much, much more!

The animals are kept in separate glass rooms where only a total of six guests are admitted at a time. Guests are required to sanitize their hands and remove shoes before entering the room. The animals are given plenty of nap times so that they won't get tired of being petted throughout the time. And unlike many animal cafés, The Little Zoo Café does not charge any entrance fee.


Live the Thrills

One of the best things to do when it rains is to read horror and thriller books as the gloomy weather adds a touch of romance to the experience. So, when in Bangkok why not do the same? But the difference is, instead of just reading the thriller story; you will be a part of it! Brain teasing mystery games are in trend in Bangkok and there are quite a few options to choose from. There's Escape Hunt in Sukhumvit Soi 21, Escape Room, SF Cinema City, the MBK Centre down Phayathai Road, and Ticket to Mystery at Gateway Ekkamai.

Though different places, all of the above offer the same type of experience. You and your fellow team members will be locked in a room that's themed either according to past times, the future or an exotic city overseas. The only way you can escape the room and its terrors are to solve the many puzzles you are presented with. It's a bit like the SAW movie but excluding the blood and the gore!
