Pattaya Underwater world is the first tourist attraction in Pattaya that offers visitors to view a plenty of ocean creatures underwater. In this aquarium, there not only is an area that visitors can touch marine animals but also a long tunnel, 105 meters approximately, with acrylic windows. This offers visitors to feel like walking through the ocean depth. Visitors can also see staffs of the Underwater World diving down into the water to feed fish. To Visit Pattaya Underwater World would also be an opportunity to earn both marine animal knowledge and experience.
This Pattaya Underwater World firstly presents a location called Touch Pool Zone. In this area, there are rock pool creations for visitors to interact with marine animals such as turtles, seashores, a variety of fishes, seaweed, color corals, and so on. After walking through this area, visitors will find the transparent acrylic tunnel where it is separated into 3 major areas: Coral Reef Zone, Open Ocean Zone, and Giant of Siam Zone. In the Coral Reef Zone, visitors will see a number of colorful fish in the tropical coral reefs. For the Open Ocean Zone, visitors are able to come face to face with powerful predators from the ocean depth as Black Tip Reef Sharks, Eagle Rays, Black-blotched Rays, and many more. The Giant of Siam Zone (or shipwrecks Zone) is the sunken ship becoming an excellent home for a large number of aquatic animals.
The feeding time is interesting and exciting because a staff dives in the water to feed fish. While feeding them, there are so great numbers of fish around the staff that it is difficult to see him, and when feeding sharks, the staff also feeds them towards their mouth.
