Things to Do in FROST Magical Ice of Siam

This section is really set like the Arctic vibe where the temperature is under zero and you can sculpt a polar bear with ice. Do not forget to try the igloo and interact with penguins. Since you are in Thailand, you can also find some tuk-tuk sculptures inside the area. You will also notice that they change the light colors regularly so you can feel the atmosphere. Do not forget to prepare your camera and take a picture or two with anything you find inside the Ice Dome. Make sure you are careful enough because the ice is pretty slippery. We recommend you to wear proper clothes and pants because it is going to be very cold. There is a restaurant inside the Ice Dome where you can but a cup of tea or coffee to warm up your body.
Himmapan Forest is the forest you may find at the outdoor section. At the outside, there will be a big sand sculpture all in white. It looks like snow has covered that thing. Later, the dark spotlight will illuminate the whole sculpture and you will see the Himmapan Forest. Himmapan was named after the real Himmapan Forest. According to Hindu and Buddhist myth, the forest was surrounding Mount Meru and that mountain is the center of this universe. There are so many mythical creatures live and inhabit the forest other than plants and trees.
According to the old story, the mythical creatures that live inside the forest are the combination of several animal characteristics. For example, there is a horse with a bird's head or a fish with an elephant's head. Other than that, they believe that there is Karin Puksa or an elephant that could fly and a dragon with claw feet and wings named Winged Ghilen. The forest is also the place where you can find a Nariphon Tree. Nariphon Tree is a tree that looks like a young woman. Also, do not miss the opportunity to see the sculpture of Ramayana, one of the most famous yet epic Thailand folklore. Each sculpture you may find in this area has a plaque in front of it and the information is written both in Thailand and English.

How To Get There?
This Arctic in Pattaya is located next to the sheep farm of Pattaya. The place is close to the intersection between Pattaya and Chonburi highway in Bang Laming district. It is 15 kilometers away from the central Pattaya. Since there is a very limited transport option, we highly recommend you to use a taxi or chartered songthaew. Make sure both the driver and you already have the agreement about the price and the duration before leaving. Also, it is better to be a round trip transfer because it is pretty hard to find a public transport or taxi around the destination.

If you can get the best deal, it is better to purchase their holiday package. If you are lucky, you can also get a cheaper entrance ticket to get into the Frost Magical Ice of Siam.
