The Phuket Aquarium is not as big as Siam Ocean World, but it is still a must visit attraction in Phuket. It is a place full of amazement and offers many opportunities of entertainment for the whole family, especially kids. It is not only the source of entertainment for tourists but being a part of Phuket Marine Biological Center, it also plays an important role in research, protection and education of marine life. Here, you can see crabs, eels, sharks, stingrays and many others.
