Siam Ocean World Bangkok
Tourists swamp the streets of the Thai capital of Bangkok all year round and it is mainly because the city never runs out of things to amuse and attract tourists. Vibrant and cosmopolitan Bangkok is often a preferred choice among tourists for city breaks in the East as there are a countless number of things to do in Bangkok.
Among them, one that has been popular among all age groups of tourists is Siam Ocean World. Want to take a break from shopping, drop a few levels below the famous Siam Paragon shopping mall to discover a sea of marine life! One of the largest aquariums in South East Asia lays two storeys below the shopping mall. There are over 30 000 sea creatures from varying depths of the mysterious oceans across the globe. If you happen to stay in one of the hotels in close proximity to Siam Paragon and want to take a break from your usual shopping trips then this is a great way to do so. Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel is a stone’s throw away from this aquarium which is one of the reasons why most guests pop by here.
The aquarium is the size of three Olympic size swimming pools and is home to some of the world’s rarest species. Some coming all the way from the Amazon while others are believed to have been around since when the dinosaurs were on earth. Also, there is a 270-degree tunnel where one can come face to face with some of the deadliest predators of the Ocean. There is also the chance to take a trip on a glass bottom boat or if you are brave enough dive into taking a swim with the sharks and rays. Overall the experience here can be an educational as well as a break from the usual Bangkok activities.
