Underwater World Pattaya
Underwater World Pattaya is divided into different themed zones, including the Open Ocean, Coral Reef, and Giants of Siam. Other areas are dedicated to tortoises and sea turtles, fighting fish, otters, and an interactive touch tank that’s popular with kids. Choose between a basic admission ticket and a ticket that includes hassle-free transportation from Pattaya hotels. The aquarium is also included on the Ultimate Thailand Pass, a multi-attraction ticket that offers discounted admission to several top sights.
