Top 5 Activities to Engage in on a Rainy Day in Phuket – Go out and Play though the Skies Turn Grey

Phuket is not only known for its sunny spells but also for monsoonal rains that may put you off from stepping outside. Consider these activities in the event you are in Phuket during such a time.


Phuket Aquarium

Uncover the mysteries of the deep blue as you step inside the Phuket Aquarium which is a fun activity for all ages. Look to the Tunnel here which is by far the highlight of any visit which provides you the ease of coming into close contact with all your favourite marine life. The aquarium houses over 30 tanks where colourful species which range from hawksbill turtles, sharks, eels and varied forms of fish can be explored and learned of. Further, the floor-to-ceiling wall exhibits showcase a wealth of information on the inhabitants where areas such as conservation and habitats are dealt with in great detail.


Baan Teelanka

Referred to as Phuket's 'Upside Down House' and that too for good reason, Baan Teelanka which is a three-storey house paints the perfect picture for those of you who crave adventure and are enthused about creativity. One of the onsite activities is the Chamber of Secrets which involves participants being locked in a series of rooms with certain clues available that pave the way for you to escape each part of the area that leads outside. Next up is the Maze which features carefully planned routes that are obstructed at various points that snake its way at a pace that may leave your mind in a swirl. Though, it is exciting as well as enthralling exercise, especially for those holidaying in Phuket in groups.


Thai Cooking Classes

Give yourself the chance to test your culinary skills by partaking in a Thai cookery class. The experience includes you and a local chef shopping for produce at a market where you will be encouraged to pick only the best that would go into an array of dishes. Then, you will be taken through the ins and outs of the textures and ingredients that are utilized. What's more? As long as you pay attention and follow every instruction laid down, a single class will suffice for you to master the fine art of preparing wholesome and extravagant Thai food. A good way to enjoy such an activity will be to stay at a local resort property such as Anantara Layan Phuket Resort which not only has access to Thai cookery classes but lets you access Phuket pool villa accommodation as well.


Phuket Trickeye Museum

Herein, you will discover the astounding yet engaging marvels of the Phuket Trickeye Museum which has reproduced some of the world's most prized art and movie scenes in real-life scenarios. Ideal for photography and testing your level of curiosity, a visit to the museum is highly encouraged as it is both educational and downright hilarious. This is largely due to the fact that things at the museum don't always seem what they appear to be. Thus, do tread carefully upon arrival as each of the galleries is sure to surprise you with every gaze and turn.


Jungceylon Shopping Complex

At the Jungceylon Shopping Complex located on Bangla Road, there is something for everyone with shopping stores selling the world's most loved brands being topnotch. Also, a great way to beat the heat as well the showers would be to call by the 16-lane bowling alley where you may go bowling with your best mates or family.
