Well, you would think Bangkok is not the place to learn how to ice skate, or to ice skate actually. It is just too hot for that. But actually there are many places where you can do it, and they all are a welcome relief from Bangkok heat.
We chose one that is not very far from where we live (in Thonglor area), just one stop away on the BTS route, Ekkamai BTS station.
Another view from Ekkamai station
So here is the chronology of events. First going to Thonglor station
And taking the train to Ekkamai, one station only
Once in Ekkamai station, you’ve got an overpass to the building where the Ice Skating Club is located
And the fun can begin, although when you’re a beginner in ice skating, it is not that much fun actually.
But it gets better with time
And well, within two hours, you’re almost there
But it sure will take some time before I reach the level of these guys playing hockey
All the photos were taken with the Canon 7D and the Canon lens 24-105mm in the Sub Zero Ice Skate Club in Ekkamai
