Why Siam Ocean World is special ?
Two storeys underneath the glitzy Siam Paragon shopping mall, an aquatic wonderland the size of three Olympic swimming pools awaits your discovery at the Siam Ocean World. This underground aquarium, one of the largest in Southeast Asia, will dazzle you with innovative world-class exhibits and over 30,000 curious looking creatures from various depths and aquatic regions across the globe.
Meet some of the world’s record holders, transported all the way from the Amazon River or the Jurassic period when dinosaurs still roamed the earth. Greet the ocean’s deadliest predators in the 270-degree underwater tunnel, sneak a peek into the open ocean from a glass-bottom boat, or, if you really can’t resist, dive in and have a swim amongst the sharks and rays. For kids, a few hours spent at the Siam Ocean World will be as educational as it is exhilarating and memorable.

Tips for you
If you have an appreciation for aquariums and ocean life its very well done. It is full of children and things for kids to do. That being said , I CHOSE SCUBA DIVING WITH THE SHARKS IN THE AQUARIUM! I have always had an irrational fear of sharks and drowning. Last year I went cage diving in Africa with the Great Whites to get over it and I was hooked. THIS was far more intense....I have never been scuba diving either. Popeye was the perfect teacher. This was my first time to Thailand and I went alone. Getting around and language were problematic at times, Popeye is from Vermont just like my family! We got suited up and went over the basics, then we just sat on the bench practicing breathing for a while. No hurry or stress .Time to get in, the water is warm ,72 degrees about, and then you are in your own world. Then I came face to face with a Grouper and just about lost it, I wanted to give up right then. I made a small panicky motion and was about to go up and Popeye looked at me and adjusted my weights and we went on. He has a calming effect and thanks to that I went on to have one of my greatest adventures yet! The more still you are the closer the sharks will get. As long as you do not flap around like prey they just cruise right by you. Later in the pictures and videos I got to see that while I was looking at one in front of me there would be one hanging out right behind me! As an animal loving adult I feel that this is the best way to experience the aquarium. I will never forget it. Face your fears, you never know ,they could become your new passions. Thanks again to Popeye, who had the hardest job . He had to dive with a anxious neurotic me. Now that is scary!
