Underwater World (800 meters form the estate)
The Underwater World Pattaya is in reality in JomTien only 1,5 km far away from our Village in the middle from the shopping Centres MAKRO and Tesco/LOTUS and is the trendiest ocean aquarium in Asia. It is in an enclosed area as a big tunnel that gives you the feeling be in the depths of seas. Actually it is a pedestrian tunnel that has been made using acrylic that is 100 meters long and 6.4 centimeters thick.
The whole area of the Underwater World
Pattaya is 12 Rais. It is placed in a
structure that can be said to be similar to
big circus tents. There are around 2,500
marine animals − a number that is made up
of over 200 different species from Thailand
itself. There are various other rare
creatures that have been brought in from
different locations of the globe. The
visitors should see the shovelnose ray that
is a hybrid of a shark and a stingray.
Some of the various species of marine life that you would be seeing at the Underwater World Pattaya are as follows: Otters, Reef Fishes, Rays, Sharks, Eagle rays, Moray eels and many many other
Opening Hours : 9 a.m. to 6
p.m. daily (last admission 5.30 p.m.)
This fantastic marine structure is interesting indeed. It also has a lovely souvenir shop and when it gives you a good Thai feeling you can after that go to LOTUS to enjoy a nice and cheap Thai meal in their food Court
or go the other way to the MAKRO to enjoy one of the varied fantastic coffees with a choise of many fresh
sweets out of their bakery next to the Coffee Shop.
