Try the adventure for the brave — the Bangkok’s aquarium offers a unique opportunity for diving with grey nurse sharks.
Multicolored fish shimmering with gold and bronze, silver-grey sea queens - the sharks, - winged rays gliding in the water, funny penguins, muskrats and otters – you can find them all in the colossal aquarium in Bangkok. The excellently equipped aquarium will entertain you not only with the enchanting diversity of its residents, but also with a friendly design, the traditional acrylic tunnel with a great view, the excellent care provided for the fish and animals and the unique chance to swim with … the grey nurse sharks! It is worth mentioning that, though you will be accompanied by an experienced member of staff, this activity is by no means for the weak-hearted!
