Underwater World Pattaya situated on South Pattaya is the largest and most modern ocean aquarium
in Asia with a 100-metre-long acrylic pedestrian tunnel. This new
attraction features exotic marine and freshwater fish displays, providing
every visitor the unique experience of viewing the creatures from the
deep through crystal clear water.
Located just 200 meters
south of Tesco Lotus in South Pattaya, the new
theme park covers a total area of 12-rai (4,000 square meters of land)
and is housed in a structure similar to a large circus tent. The aquarium
currently houses over 4,000 marine animals, comprising more than 200
different species from the region as well as some rare creatures from
overseas. They all are in the ecosystem of underwater world.
The showcase of Underwater
World begins at the shallow "Touch Pool" area which allows
visitors to see and interact with underwater lives such as sharks,
stingrays, turtles, starfishes, seahorses, many species of fishes,
seaweeds, colored corals, small creatures, etc. Then visitors proceed
down the state-of-the-art acrylic underwater tunnel which is divided into
3 zones. The first part is themed "Reef Zone" featuring coral
reef. Next is "Sharks and Rays Zone" showcasing sharks, sting
rays and other creatures from the depth of the sea. The last is "Shipwrecks Zone" featuring various kinds of fish
which are edible.
A visit to
Underwater World Pattaya would enable visitors
gain educational knowledge and entertaining experience as well as learn
more about marine animals and be aware of marine conservation.
