Click for Easy Navigation


Imagine excitedly anticipating the weekend after a string of stressful days at work, and Saturday morning arrives with the sound of rumbling thunder and stagnant downpour. Quite disappointing, isn’t it?

Phuket is no stranger to rainy days. When the monsoon season hits, the crowds that linger on the island’s gorgeous beaches and pulsating streets disappear. On weekends, many residents stay at home and wait for the rain to pass, regretting wasted plans.

However, it doesn’t have to be this way. Why let bad weather stop you from having fun? Here are 5 exciting things you can do in Phuket when the weather is not in your favor:

1. Let Baan Teelanka Literally Turn Your World Upside Down

Baan Teelanka is Just One Place to Visit in Phuket

Imagine walking on what seems to be a ceiling and having wooden tiles over your head. That’s what Baan Teelanka will be like from the minute you set foot inside the 3-floored building. You’ll witness gravity-defying household objects, from furniture and other household items hanging overhead to chandeliers you’ll have to walk past carefully. Both adults and children are sure to love this mind-boggling upside-down house.

2. Escape a Room

If you’re looking for something more challenging, then you’ll love a good room escape game! Locked in a room, you’ll have to find clues and solve puzzles to make your way out. If you don’t, well, you lose. Sounds like something you’d enjoy? Check out 30 Minutes to Escape in Jungceylon Mall or Escape Hunt. This activity is perfect for all ages.

3. Get Wet at Splash Jungle Waterpark

If you have your heart set on Splash Jungle Waterpark, a little rain will definitely not stop you from going. With exciting slides, such as Super Bowl and Boomerango, a Wave Pool, the 335-meter long Lazy River, a kid’s Aqua Play Pool and Aqua Park, a 6-lane Whizzard, Family Raft Ride, and so much more, there’s something for everyone at this fun-filled waterpark.

4. Marvel at the Colorful Marine Life at Phuket Aquarium

Phuket Aquarium is a fascinating place that lets you explore the vast blue sea without diving into it. Walk around the aquarium and get up close to the beautiful marine creatures that inhabit Thailand’s lakes, rivers, and the Andaman Sea. From clownfish and seahorses to stingrays and sharks, you’ll get to see everything that swims.

5. Shop ‘Til You Drop

Phuket is famed for its postcard-picture beaches and one-of-a-kind nightlife. At the same time, there’s so much more to this enchanting island than first meets the eye. Once you discover the hidden gems, you’ll never let the weather determine the fun you have again.
