If you’re in Bangkok and missing the cold temperatures and winter feel of western climates, then Snow Town is the place to go. Located on the 5th floor of Ekkamai shopping mall it provides a huge hall like room full of snow to play in and restaurants to dine in.

The decorations around the outside of the snow zone provide a British town feel, with street lights and brightly lit town houses. There is also a large screen showing footage of the Snow Town mascot performing in a variety of winter sports and plenty of Snow Town mascots around the area to pose for photos with.

Every time we have been past the entrance at Snow Town the queues have been extremely busy and this is reflected once inside. The area is packed with small children and adults all enjoying the snow. Although Snow Town advertise that it is possible to ski and have skiing lessons, we feel this would be restricted to small children and extreme beginners as there are only two very small hills.

Nevertheless these hills are great fun to slide down on sledges, scooters or even your bum! Sledges and other snow equipment are available for rental. Aside from sliding down the hills, Snow Town provides the opportunity to have snow ball fights, build snow men or simply roll around in real snow.

It is probably worth noting that Snow Town only provides winter shoe hire and not coats or gloves. However, the temperatures once inside and when running around weren’t too cold and we were comfortable in cardigans and scarves.

Around the outside of the snow zone area there are several restaurants to choose from and cafes to sit in. So if you’re a parent who wants to avoid the snow, there are plenty of places to sit and watch.

We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon in Snow Town and felt it was worth the money. However, it is probably more suited for younger children to experience snow rather than older children or adults who want to experience adrenalin filled sledging.
