I just came back to my room from an ice skating session here in Bangkok. Seriously. I even took some pictures to show you. The rink we went to is on the 7th floor of the Central Rama 9 shopping mall. It’s called The Rink.
It’s pretty easy to get there: Just take the MRT (Underground) to Phra Ram 9 station. The mall is connected to the station so you don’t even have to go outside.
The price for a 1.5 hour ice skating session is 280 Baht, see the timetable and price list below. Lockers are available too but you have to pay 30-50 Baht extra. The ice skates are included in the price.
The whole rink and all facilities are super new and best quality.
I know there are a couple of other rinks, for example in Central World or at Major Cineplex Sukhumvit, but they are significantly smaller and a lot more crowded. The rink at Central Rama 9 has the size of an ice hockey rink. And guess what, I have seen something that I would have never expected: Thai guys playing and training professional ice hockey!
Update: Unfortunately, they closed The Rink at Central Rama 9 and replaced it with a game hall for children!
However, there are 2 alternatives: Sub-Zero in Ekkamai and The Rink at Central World (locations on the map below).
