Underwater World was a nice morning activity with my 3 & 4-y.o. kids. We arrived around 11 am on a Sunday over a Thai long weekend, and by noon, the place was a bit crowded for small kids. It's not the most amazing or extensive of aquariums (much smaller and less fancy compared to Siam Ocean World...but also less expensive), but has a long, winding, one-way corridor that takes you past all the displays and through a long underwater tunnel that we and the kids enjoyed. Perhaps not recommended if you are claustrophobic.

There wasn't much information about the fish or the info was rather sporadic (my favourite panel titled "Ray's anatomy" had only one label for "gill" and that was it), and one tank of tropical fish were feeding on a whole Chinese cabbage (!), but I found these to be amusing quirks.

I don't know if I'd go again, unless the kids really want to and we have nothing better to do...

Though not as big as Siam Ocean World,Bangkok it's a good place to hang out and see all the aquatic life from inside.Separate enclosures for different kind of fishes.Have small sharks also.

good but expensive but in Bangkok it is better. When a bus with russian people arrive - better you wait 30 minutes to go in or drink something at the refreshing center-

The marine life in the tanks here are handled, touched and even ridden by inexperienced people. This is the worst way to treat these amazing creatures. If you're visiting Thailand, take the time to dive or snorkel many of the amazing beaches where you can see these animals in their natural habitat. Giving money to places like this only encourages behavior which harms the animals you've come to enjoy.

We just decided to go there as it was part of our package. It is interesting..But it was too small..you can just finish it in like 20 minutes flat..It is good place to go if you have small kids. But nothing extraordinary if you are an adult and have gone to other big aquariums. If you did plan going here..and can't make the time..dn't think twice..u can easily skip it..
