I went to Thailand 3 times just for a relaxing vacation. To be honest, I love Thailand, not only for shopping purposes but also for recreational purposes as well. I have been to Pattaya, Krabi, Phuket, and Bangkok and gathered some memories before migrating here in Ukraine.

I have one Thai friend as well, she is a sweetheart. She can speak English but struggle a lot, she lives with her mother in Bangkok and do a government job. Whenever I went to Thailand, Bangkok, I used to meet her, not just because she is native, she has a pure heart which always attracts me to stay connected with her.

It was 2017, January after the new year. I and my family decided to go out for a small vacation in Thailand and first destination was Bangkok. This was our 3rd and perhaps last trip to Bangkok, Thailand. My friend's name was Tree, Tree was on holiday too so when we reached Bangkok, we made a travel plan for Bangkok. Not only shopping plan but also we made a plan to explore the beautiful Ocean World/ Sea Life which was located at Siam Paragon.

We were 6 people so Tree bought tickets for us before. This place is known as Siam Paragon Ocean World or Siam Paragon Sea Life, both are correct. We had to wait for 30 minutes to enter into the world because the queue was large. Many people with family and children come here to explore this world.

Just because we were waiting outside so we decided to capture some pictures. Don't go to my looks, I was different back in days. But these pictures are now beautiful memories.

I know how it feels to explore this type of aquarium because we can see a lot of creatures that we have never seen before in person.

Basically, this entire sea world was divided into two zones, Freshwater and Seawater and there were subdivisions as well according to the habitats. Like planktons, freshwater planktons, small fishes, river fishes, mammals, sea creatures, and so on.

To be honest, I have never seen axolotl fish in person before visiting this large aquarium.


This is the largest aquarium in south-east Asia which holds approximately 10,000 square meters (110,000 sq ft) with hundreds of different species on display in exhibits.

Most of the species name I have forgotten already but few I can remember like dragonfish, lionfish, eels, tango fishes, betta fishes, Arapaima, garden eels, seahorses, turtles and many more. Also, I have seen jellyfishes as well.

Aquariums are different from one another according to the creatures and their habitats. Planktons, small fishes were kept separately and zone and lighting system was completely different.

Obviously, you will spend a good time there and children enjoy a lot. They become very excited about seeing those creatures.

My dad was very excited, he was showing us all the creatures. To be honest, I captured videos more than pictures... Hahaha... How can I forget to take some videos of this amazing world?

You can see how beautiful each and every aquarium were. I told you before I was not familiar with many of the creatures in fact I completely forget many of their names.

I had a great time exploring this giant aquarium with my family friends. Well, in Kharkiv we have a very small aquarium but it is for children and nothing interesting to watch.



Adding this video in case you want to watch more...

I think this is the worthy place to explore and we have spent 2 hours there almost exploring the entire aquarium.

This is it for today, see you on my next post...

Stay Home, Stay Safe...
