While you may not think it, Bangkok actually offers lots to do for the active traveller and those looking to enjoy some recreation or sporting action.
Though the city is a veritable concrete jungle, it does have some wonderful parks where you can have a jog or sprint if you so desire! If you are an avid jogger, look to find a Bangkok hotel promotion at properties within easy reach of such parks; these include Lumphini Park, Chatuchak Park and Benchasiri Park.
A great activity for the whole family, bowling in Bangkok is on offer at quite a number of locations. SF Strike Bowl at the MBK Centre within easy reach of properties of Chatrium Hotels & Residences is one option as is TPD Bowling on Ekkachai Road. Blu-O Rhythm & Bowl has several branches in the city including at Siam Paragon, The Esplanade and Major Cineplex Sukhumvit.
A great way to beat the heat, ice skating is something that all can enjoy. The city’s sole Olympic-sized rink can be found at Imperial World Ice Skating, while The Rink Ice Arena has rinks at CentralPlaza Grand Rama IX, CentralWorld and Fashion Island.
No, you are not reading it wrong, you can actually go surfing in the Thai capital! The city may not have a beach, but it is home to Flow House Bangkok which has an artificial wave machine which provides the surfing-like experience called flowriding; a mix of surfing and wakeboarding, it is something all ages can try.
