Thailand is a tropical country, and the weather flits between warm, hot, and rainy! The average temperatures range between 18 and 38 degrees Celcius throughout the balmy summers. The best way to cool down is to jump in a pool. While many holiday villas and most hotels have temperature-controlled swimming pools, likely, they don’t have exciting slides and other entertainment to keep the kids happy and active.
Waterparks are fun and offer a range of activities for your little ones to enjoy, including water slides, lazy rivers, toboggans, and floating tubes. Whether staying on the largest island, Phuket, or the bustling city of Bangkok, you’ll find a waterpark that suits you and your family. The wet and wild Little Steps team has explored some of Thailand’s best waterparks and brings you the definitive guide to splashing fun in the land of smiles.
One of Thailand's most exciting waterparks, the Blue Tree Phuket has endless fun for your entire family. It's home to the country's largest crystal lagoon, including Thailand's longest superfly, a water jump, a covered open-air amphitheater area, a lifestyle village, and a vast natural forest park with all sorts of sports and fitness facilities. The exciting entertainment hub is open from morning to night. It offers an immersive experience for children and adults of all ages. Blue Tree Phuket may be the deciding factor for your next family holiday. There is always something fun to do at Blue Tree Phuket, whether it's the vast range of aquatic activities where your little ones (and you) can experience a thrilling adventure with an underwater scooter, paddle boarding, or wakeboarding. There is something new to try every day, such as Muay Thai classes, beach volleyball, or football. Kids that love an adrenaline rush will love the super fly water slides that catapult them into the air before landing with a mighty splash in the lagoon. Kids can also try cliff jumping and launch themselves off artificial precipices into the water; there is also a climbing wall where they can learn how to scale walls and boulders and strengthen their bodies. The zipline allows kids to soar above the lagoon. The family zone is ideal for children under six with various obstacles, little slides, and water fountains.
