The aquarium is pretty small and not very versatile. A new one is supposed to be opening this year at Phuket, hopefully it will be a better one. If you've never been to an aquarium or you have small children with you then it is...More

Felt bad for fishes as the tanks looked stained with algae. All aquariums had similar lightening irrespective of different fishes and their habitat. Some fishes were too shy to come out and were scared when people passed by, esp. puffer fish was puffed in a...More
