Siam Ocean World has been a relatively recent addition to the attractions of Bangkok.
Situated next to the exclusive mall at Siam Paragon, on the lower ground floor, the largest aquarium complex in the region is something to enjoy, no matter what age.
The place is divided into seven sections with displays and live tanks covering rocky shore, rainforest, open oceans and reefs.
There is a section for jelly fish all of their own.
With such a new facility the technology is right up to date, but visitors can also see simple, 'old fashioned' shows for the feeding of penguins, sharks and the like.
It seems out of place to have this in the centre of Bangkok, but without doubt it is one of the most popular attractions in the city, especially for families.
