How to get to the Sea Life Bangkok Ocean World.
Impressively implemented, from the situation and the concept. Sea Life Bangkok Ocean World is located right in the center, in the basement of Siam Paragon Mall. And the Siam Paragon itself is located at BTS Station Siam. Here you can combine a shopping trip with a visit to the underwater world.
Zoo, underwater life, entertainment with animals.
"Animals are a part of nature and therefore also belong to nature," critics say when it comes to the lives of animals in zoos. No question, the animals' natural habitat is certainly still the best place where animals should live. In that respect you will be able to confirm critics. The life of the animals today has a high priority, that's a good thing, the awareness of animals has become bigger and stronger. Unfortunately, it does not remain to sympathize with animals in nature, animals are becoming more and more of a focus because the world itself is changing at an ever faster pace.
On one hand, the habitat of all animals changes, sometimes dramatically, because humans intervene everywhere. The clearing of forests is just one thing that has been known for decades and honestly, but no one really cares. Many animal species lose their habitat. Another frightening reason is the careless handling of garbage, seas are increasingly exposed to a danger: plastic waste. Plastic gets into the food circulation of the sea creatures, and plastic is now draining tons of huge sections, so that one can no longer speak of a "natural habitat".
A zoo or underwater world may not be a natural habitat, but these places also help people develop a better understanding of how to deal with animals, and perhaps reach one or the other, indirectly in their own small world or active moreover, show and try to understand and treat the world better. To sum up a zoo or underwater world would be bad is wrong. And, sad but true, if people go on like this, many animals in nature will not be seen anymore and will actually only exist in zoos and underwater worlds.
990 Baht is the entry fee for adults, 790 Baht for children. So you can enter the underwater world and watch most of the animals. There are several extras in the Sea Life, which also cost extra. A guidebook costs 250 Baht, the trip with a glass bottom boat costs 350 Baht, the experience cinema costs 350 Baht and if you want to take a tour with a behind-the-scenes look at 350 Baht.
