Siam Ocean World


Siam Ocean World, originally uploaded by B℮n.

Covering an area of 10,000 square meters (the size of two football pitches) on the basement of the luxurious Siam Paragon shopping mall, Siam Ocean World is one of the largest aquariums in Southeast Asia. With 30,000+ marine animals (Seals, Blue Ringed Octopus, Ragged-tooth sharks, Stingrays, Leafly Sea Dragons, Giant Spider Crabs, and Sharks of various types including Ragged-tooth, Black tipped, and Leopard) this is the largest aquarium in Southeast Asia and one of Bangkok’s most adventurous projects. Siam Ocean World take you through seven different environments starting with the strangely titled ‘Weird and Wonderful’, the ‘Open Ocean’, ‘Deep Reef’, ‘Rainforest’, ‘Rocky Shore’, ‘Living Ocean’, and ‘Sea Jellies’. Not only is it possible to walk through these environments observing marine life through the safety of thick glass windows, it is also possible actually get in Siam Ocean World's 2.8 million litre Oceanarium and meet the sharks face-to-face. For the less adventurous, take a ride in a glass bottomed boat.
