Thailand activities - Underwater World Pattaya
Underwater World Pattaya is located in South Pattaya and is the largest and most modern ocean aquarium in Asia with a 100-metre-long acrylic pedestrian tunnel. This attraction features exotic marine life displays, providing every visitor the unique experience of seeing the creatures of the deep through crystal clear water.
Location of Underwater Ocean aquarium
Located just 200 metres south of Tesco Supermarket in South Pattaya, the tourist attraction covers a total area of 4,000 square metres of land and is contained in a structure that replicates a large circus tent. The aquarium presently houses over 4,000 marine animals, encompassing more than 200 different species from the area as well as some rare creatures from abroad. They are all in the ecosystem of underwater world.
Amazing underwater world
The showcase of Underwater World begins at the "Touch Pool" area, which is a shallow pool that allows visitors to observe and interact with underwater animals such as bamboo sharks, stingrays, starfish, and many species of fish, seaweeds, coloured corals and archer fish. It is bemusing to watch the archer fish as they try to knock food from your hand that you dangle within their view.
Visitors then proceed down the state-of-the-art acrylic underwater passageway which is divided into 3 zones. The first part is the "Reef Zone". This features coral reef and an abundance of colourful fish that are relaxing to watch. The next zone is the "Sharks and Rays", displaying sharks, sting rays, ray sharks and turtles among other creatures from the sea. The last is the "Shipwrecks Zone" featuring various kinds of fish that are edible.
A visit to Underwater World Pattaya would enable visitors to gain educational knowledge and an entertaining experience as well as learn more about marine life and be aware of marine conservation. For those who wish to experience something more audacious and exciting, why not try snorkelling or scuba diving within the aquariums? Come face to face with giant groupers and swim with the turtles - a true thrill seeking adventure not to be missed!
