We haven't really explored much of the marine life on our planet, which is mostly made up of water and is fascinating and enthralling in its own right. Because of this, an aquarium will make a fantastic alternative for your family's trip to Thailand and will improve your travel experience. Bangkok Ocean World is one such aquatic attraction that one shouldn't skip while in Bangkok. Bangkok Ocean World is among the best places to visit in Bangkok and is regarded as the biggest and largest aquarium in Southeast Asia. In this blog, we will be sharing things that one should do in and around the Bangkok Ocean World. Explore the vibrant culture, stunning landscapes, and rich history of Thailand with our curated Bangkok Tour Packages, offering an unforgettable journey filled with adventure and relaxation.

Why visit Bangkok Ocean World

Visit Bangkok Ocean World, also known as (formerly known as) Siam Ocean World, for a unique underwater encounter with our marine friends. Considering that this attraction is inside the main city, getting there is much simpler and more affordable. The aquarium is split up into 12 different zones, each of which offers us the chance to see a variety of our marine friends, from lethal predators to vibrant, alluring corals. This aquarium also has a 4-D theatre, a glass boat experience, some games, and eateries and cafeterias on its property to keep us occupied and relaxed. Because it has so much to offer in terms of entertainment and knowledge, Bangkok Ocean World is among the top places to visit in Bangkok with family and children.

Things to do at the Bangkok Ocean World

One of Southeast Asia's biggest aquariums, Bangkok Ocean World is 10,000 square meters in size. Directly below the Paragon Mall, in its basement, is where you'll find the aquarium. Traversing through different tunnels and seeing our aquatic friends gives us an immersive experience in the underwater world. In addition to our aquatic friends, they do contain some reptiles and amphibians, such as frogs and snakes. 

Each of the aquarium's various zones has its own set of aquatic creatures and activities. Near each site, there are hoardings that provide information about the nature, type of food required, habitat, and other characteristics of these marine organisms. There are many things to do to keep us entertained, including feeding the marine animals, photographing them, riding in glass boats, and going to a 4-D theatre.

Some of the different zones that we can spot inside this underwater aquarium include:

  • Coral Reef: Look out for vibrant corals and fishes like lionfish, clownfish and eels.
  • Rocky Shore: The feeding session of cute penguins and turtles are attractions here.
  • Ocean Tunnel: Home to giant predators like sharks and rays e.g: sand tiger sharks.
  • Shark Shipwreck:  A man-made shipwreck zone which consists of sharks.
  • Tropical Ocean: Home to colourful and vivid fishes like Longfin Bannerfish and eels
  • Sea Horse Kingdom: House stunning sea-horses like Big Belly Seahorses
  • Rainforest Adventure: Home to a variety of tropical creatures including fish, turtles, frogs and snakes.
  • Penguin Ice Playground: Have fun visiting these active penguins and the nearby gaming zone
  • Rocky Hideouts: A hideout spot for giant spider crabs and a giant pacific octopus.
  • Rockpools: Get personal with starfish and crabs by touching them.

In addition, the 4-D Theatre experience immerses us right into the universe of our favourite animated characters, like SpongeBob SquarePants. The kids will enjoy this more because of its adventure-themed ride experience. On the glass boat ride, we can travel directly over the ocean's predators. Additionally, there are restaurants nearby and a food court above the aquarium where you can unwind and rehydrate
