Aquarium .

Main attraction of Siam ocean world is Aquarium. Where  4 million litres of water shelter sea and river fishes, frog and toads, penguins, amphibians and mammals are available..  The underwater tunnel where you can watch sharks and stingrays swimming over your head. We had great time, watching sharks, and different kinds of fishes.

Happy fish happy feet:

This was our first fish spa/pedicure, i was little hesitant and worried if fish would bite. Watched couple of people taking spa, finally took come courage and got in :).. The tiny fishes nibble on our feets but don't bite.. After 30mins of session, feet were washed and dried. After this we felt feet was smooth and clean, as fishes eat away the dry and dead skins....

Tickles a lot, our first fish massage.

 4D Theatre 

Its a  20 minute movie in 4D. These seats employ a lot of sudden jerks and tilts. They even have air blowers that will suddenly sprinkle water and blow air on your face as the movie is being played. It was a excellent short movie..I loved it..


All set to watch 4d movie..

Back of House Tour

It gives a behind-the-scenes look at the aquarium's workings. The staff showed us what goes into taking care of the fish, the tanks and their breeding. Here we saw Jelly fish, Nemo and many other fishes and sharks too..

After lunch, we took a sky train from siam square station to National stadium station and walked 2mins for  MBK shopping mall. After strolling different floors in mall, i felt it  was too costly. So we decided to head to Lalai sap market as suggested by  travel agent from hotel...
