If you feel intimidated by a fast-travelling tennis ball, why not opt for the softer version badminton (which is very popular in Asia). There are countless badminton courts in Bangkok. Most of which usually have racquets available for rent. It's also advisable to check with a court before you go since some places are reserved exclusively for their members.

Cycling Guide

A great way to see Bangkok - and you won't be stuck in traffic. Cycle the back roads at the right time of day and you'll see another facet of this great city. Cycling tours have become more popular over the last few years as visitors discover they can see places not accessible by bus or car.

Sepak Takraw

Zooming past his teammates, the team's 'killer' hurls himself parallel to the ground, and in a matter of split seconds spikes the fast-approaching ball over the net with a high-flying scissor kick, then skillfully lands on the same foot. Travelling at a vigorous speed towards the opponent's territory, the ball narrowly evades the reaching foot of one of the opposing blockers and eventually hits the ground. The crowd goes wild.

Ice Skating

Beat Bangkok's heat and stage your own holiday on ice at the city's many rinks. An ideal (and fun) way to spend time with your family, ice skating provides non-stop thrill for kids and parents alike. Remember to wear something warm and comfortable. Long, thick socks, jeans, and gloves are recommended as they will cushion against unexpected falls.

Tennis & Squash

Tennis has picked up its momentum as a preferred sport among the younger generations, thanks to Tamarine Tanasugarn and Paradorn Srichaphan - the two pros who impressed the whole nation with their historic performances in the international arena. Not only the young, adults seem to pick up their interest on the sport as well. Luckily, tennis courts have popped up across the city, and most luxury hotels and serviced apartments do provide their own facilities.
