Frost Magical Ice of Siam Pattaya offers a new attraction in Pattaya, the ice sculptures by world-class Thai artisans. Frost Magical Ice of Siam offers the opportunity to experience the cold of the Arctic in a tropical country. Temperatures in the Ice Dome are a chilling -10 degrees Celsius, while at the outdoors section temperatures are some 40 degrees higher.
Frost Magical Ice of Siam is a 30,000 square meter ice park filled with internationally acclaimed sculptures and carvings of both ice and sand. It tells the story of Thailand, art and culture of Thailand through the concept and creation of the magnificent ice sculptures. Frost Magical Ice of Siam divided into different zones, including.
Siam Heaven, the Ice Dome
The indoor section called Siam Heaven or Ice Dome feels like the Arctic with its below zero temperatures and ice sculptures of polar bears, penguins and an igloo, a snow house of the Inuit people living in the Arctic. In -10 degrees Celsius temperatures you will also find some typical Thai items, like an ice sculpted tuk-tuk.
The constantly changing light colors give the Ice Dome extra atmosphere. Take fun photos sitting in an ice tuk-tuk or igloo, posing with a snowman or sliding down from an ice slide. Be careful walking on the slippery ice. Get your complimentary soft drink served in an ice glass at the ice bar.
Come prepared and dress for the cold. Wear long pants, good shoes and socks. A rental warm winter coat is supplied at the entrance. After enjoying the arctic temperatures of the Ice Dome, warm up with some hot coffee or tea in the restaurant.
Himmapan Forest Area
At the outside area, you will find large sand sculptures, all in white, so it looks like they are covered in snow. After dark spotlights illuminate the sculptures.
The Himmapan area is named after the legendary Himmapan forest. In Buddhist and Hindu mythologies, the forest surrounds Mount Meru, the center of the universe. The forest is inhabited by many mythological creatures, trees and plants.
The animals that live there have characteristics of several animals combined in them, such as a horse with the head of a bird and a fish with the head of an elephant. A few of the mythological creatures you will find are a pair of flying elephants known as Karin Puksa and a Winged Ghilen, a dragon like animal with wings and claw feet.
The third zone is Frost Village, the shopping and dining zone; here patrons can enjoy a drink in an ice-carved glass at the Eskimo igloo refreshment café. Patrons are encouraged to dress warmly, although clothing rentals are also available at the park.
