Hidden away two floors beneath the glamorous mall, Siam Paragon is one of Bangkok’s most exciting tourist attractions – Siam Ocean World. Take a voyage in to the unseen world that lies in amidst the ocean, where curious underwater animals, spectacular shows and exciting activities await your arrival. The giant aquarium is the size of two football fields put together and holds enough water to fill three Olympic sized pools.
Some of Siam Ocean World’s distinct features include the acrylic tunnel which gives visitors the opportunity to get up close and personal views of the marine life. The fishbowl oceanarium which is 10.5 meters wide enchants visitors with a 360 degree view of the fish swimming freely around them. There also lies a kaleidoscope of colour in the eight meter deep reef tank. One can also discover over 60 animal displays in 7 different zones that amass to more than 30,000 species of marine life and Thailand’s first 4D theatres.
Daily and regular shows occur at Siam Ocean World, such as The Shark Feeding Show, Diver’s Communication, Eagle Ray Feeding, Water Rat Feeding, Otter Feeding, Fresh Water Fish Feeding, Penguin Feeding and Animal Contact.
Those who are brave enough can take a dive and swim around with several species of shark such as sand tigers, black tipped reef sharks and eagle rays (a prior booking is required for this activity). The Shark Encounter is a safer and way to meet the sharks, where one would step inside a tank with waist level water to touch them. Yet another exclusive activity called the Ocean Walker allows visitors to walk around at the bottom of the oceanarium with a sealed helmet and wet suit to get a unique view from the inside. Glide along the surface of the tank in Siam Ocean World in a glass bottom boat and get a closer look at the inhabitants. Visit the oceanarium and find out more details about the exciting activities on offer.
With so many things to do at Siam World, visitors will be spoilt for choice. Visit this fabulous attraction in the city, from the convenience of the modern serviced accommodation in Bangkokoffered at Citadines Sukhumvit 16 Bangkok.
