05 Great Rainy Day Activities in Bangkok – Cloudy Days are Fun Days

Bangkok may offer loads of fun in the sun but when it rains the city offers a whole host of alternate attractions that are more than awesome. Read on for some of the most popular.


Experience Loads of Pleasure at CentralWorld

Bangkok is a shopper's paradise and no shower can hinder this marvellous experience. Playing host to a bevy of local and international fashion labels the city takes shopping to new heights. The largest of all the shopping malls is CentralWorld located between the Siam and Chit Lom BTS Stations. Plenty of high street fashion labels and top designer brands are yours to browse while a very impressive food court and a myriad of entertainment options mean this mall is a lifestyle destination and not merely for shopping. This makes CentralWorld 'The Destination' for enjoying a rainy day in Bangkok


Time for Some Pampering – Enjoy a Spa Treatment

So it's raining and you can't scour the streets of Bangkok; but did you know that Thai massages and spa treatments are some of the best in the world. Therefore no one should leave the city without a stint at a Bangkok holistic centre. Best of all, the place is so full of spas that even in a shower it's a matter of dashing over to the nearest spa down the road. Of course, guests at AVANI Riverside Bangkok Hotel and most star hotels are treated in-house. Since most five star hotels offer facilities of a spa at very nominal costs you don't really need to head out of your Bangkok resort; especially in the rain.


Shop Across the World at Terminal 21

Terminal 21 is not a mere mall it is a mega collection of stores, bazaars and fashion streets from across the world. The place is a mere 21 minutes from any popular hotel riverside Bangkok has to offer. Riverside Bangkok, of course, is the vibrant Thonburi district which is located on the right bank of the vibrant Chao Phraya River where most tourists opt to base themselves at. At Terminal 21 one can walk across Tokyo, explore London's fashion district Carnaby Street and delight at the exotic merchandise on sale at a Turkish souk. Choices are endless; especially since they are from across the world.


Stay Dry and Explore the Marine Life

The largest aquarium for Southeast Asia is located at the Siam Paragon shopping mall. Due to its girth, the place is chock full of exotic marine life from ferocious sharks to wobbly jellyfish. Explore the verdant rainforest home to exceptional plant life while the glass-bottomed boat rides will reveal a beautiful world beneath your feet. Plan your trip in combination with a visit to the Madame Tussauds Wax Museum located in the adjacent Siam Discovery Mall.


Sweet Treats are Best to Chase the Rainy Day Blues

Bangkok has a marvellous collection of dessert cafes and what better way to while away a rainy day than tucking into the cake; accompanied by a steaming mug of coffee. Make a fun game of it and spend the day dessert hopping as you explore some of the best sweet tooth eateries in Bangkok. How about hearty chunks of toast and honey as served at After You or crape cakes at Secret Gardens. The choices are endless as are the marvellous selections of dessert.
