The aquarium is owned by the same megacorp that owns Legoland, and operates Madame Tussauds. They know how to entertain the masses. We've been a few times with our Thai ID card, which gives us a nice discount over the regular person rate. They have the full aquarium experience: octopus, penguins, touch pool, jellyfish, otters, rays, a big shark tank tunnel, and mood music. My favorite room has a see-through floor looking down on the shark tank. There are other attractions for an extra fee, which we have not experienced.
It took me several visits to photograph things for you, and now I've given up. I think I did all right.
|Some kind of vertical fish? I don't know. I clearly haven't read the signs.|
|More assorted fish.|
|Very large crabs.|
|Jellies photograph well. See HERE for more blurry, amateur photos of jellies from my favorite aquarium.|
|These are Garden Eels. I love them. They poke their bodies in and out of holes in the sand like slimy blades of grass. Look at their tiny, dumb heads!|
|This exhibitionist likes to smash himself (herself?) flat against the tunnel as people are walking underneath I've seen it pull this stunt every time I've visited.|
|Same with this attention whore. It makes better faces, so I don't judge it as harshly.|
Sea Life Ocean etc. has been a fun place for us to visit. It's a nice rainy day activity in Bangkok, particularly with discounted tickets through a Thai ID, tour groups, or Klook.
And IHOP's just upstairs.
