Sea Life Bangkok Ocean World
One tourist spot that offers both entertainment and enlightenment is the Sea Life Bangkok Ocean World. Patronised by schools aiming to inform their students of aquatic life, in its busy days, tourists and inquisitive students crowd the water displays of the largest aquarium in South East Asia.
Approximately 10,000 square metres with a whopping 5,000,000 litres of water housed in it, the Sea Life Bangkok Ocean World houses around 400 species and almost 30,000 fish, all of which can be observed from the safety of its glass tunnels. The most popular residents of the spectacular water display are Giant Spider Crabs, Giant Pacific Octopuses, Stingray Sharks, and African Penguins.

You can even dive in and feed the sharks if you’re feeling adventurous. Lastly, you can indulge to some good pedicure delivered by the resident fishes. What are you waiting for?
