The Snow Town Theme Park Lets Children In Thailand Experience Snow For First Time

Ice sculptures, sledging and snowball fights – the last activities you would normally associate with Thailand. But children in Bangkok have been treated to a winter wonderland theme park, and for some this is the first time they have ever seen snow. Youngsters’ faces lit up as they got to experience the sub-zero magical landscape at the Snow Town which opened this month. The attraction is located on the fifth floor of Gateway Ekamai shopping complex and offers guests an opportunity to build snowmen and make snow angels. The artificial snow is said to be 30-40cm thick so visitors can book lessons in activities such as skiing and snowboarding or enjoy a good old-fashioned snowball fight.
