If you love the ocean and its magnificent creatures, you should really make time to check out Siam Ocean World whenever you travel to Bangkok, Thailand.
I had the chance to check it out for the first time in 2007 with my friends and as of late last year when my husband and I were in Bangkok, I learned that more fun activities and learning opportunities have been added in which I think would make both kids and adults enjoy even more their time there.
While at Siam Ocean World, you can have the chance to try the Ocean Walker Experience. By using the special Ocean Walker helmet, you can walk among the fishes and other sea creatures in the water itself. They also have a Glass Bottom Boat which allows you to see even closer not only the different kinds of fish but also stingrays and yes, sharks! And remember that you are able to enjoy these and more right in the heart of a mall, in the heart of Bangkok!
The Siam Ocean World is located at Levels B1 and B2 of Siam Paragon Shopping Center. It is opened from 10 am to 21 pm (or 9 pm), last entry though is at 20 pm (or 8 pm). Tickets for tourists, Thai residents and expats can also be bought online. These are the admission prices as provided online for tourists: 900 baht (29 USD) for adults and 700 baht (23 USD) for children. They can give 10 per cent discount though, as indicated in their website (as of this writing). This is the admission rate exclusive of other activities.
