This marine aquarium showcases Thailand’s 200 plus species of underwater life. You can take a “voyage to the bottom of the sea” where you will see different types of corals and sea animals. Work your way to the 100-meter tunnel featuring acrylic windows. This allows you to see shoals of fish, a few ocean predators and other creatures found in this part of Asia.
