A family vacation is always something special. And a special occasion is best enjoyed in a unique location. As you probably know, when you travel with kids in Bangkok, having a look at the most extraordinary destinations the world has to offer is a wise decision. Doing some research for the fun times ahead will certainly pay off when your holiday is planned for Bangkok, Thailand.
You can maximize your good times in Thailand’s capital when you take a day or two for a visit to Sea Life Bangkok, which was formally known as Siam Ocean World. Fortunately, Sea Life Bangkok is located right in the center of the city. You will find the BTS Skytrain Siam Station here, which is the main transit station for both lines of the BTS Skytrain, the Silom and Sukumvit lines, which not far from here connect to the MRT Subway, the BRT bus and the Airport Link which rides out to Suvannabhumi International Airport. Siam is the nexus point of the city.
The Siam area of Bangkok also happens to be the main commercial zone of Bangkok. As such, it is absolutely brimming over with all the shopping you can imagine in your wildest shopping fantasies. Fashion and style are everywhere you look. The glitz and glamor of Bangkok’s most famous shopping malls are located here. One of these fabulous complexes is the high-end complex called Siam Paragon.
For all the excellent reasons above, booking a hotel near Siam Paragon such as VIE Hotel Bangkok is a great idea. But there is one more detail too that will interest you enormously when you travel with kids to Bangkok.
On the basement level of Siam Paragon an incredible surprise awaits you. And it’s just a short walk away from your hotel near Siam Paragon. Believe it or not, the largest underground aquarium in the entire region of South East Asia is just an elevator ride down from there! The kids will be even more thrilled to learn that Thailand’s very first 4D theatre Bangkok is also inside.
Sea Life Ocean World ((formerly Siam Ocean World) opened in December of 2005, originally as Siam Ocean World, before changing its name slightly as it expanded its offerings and attractions. It quickly became one of the most acclaimed destinations in Thailand, actually just perfect for a romantic date or an educational class outing and ideal for the list of sights to see on a family trip when you travel with kids to Bangkok. The underground aquarium complex covers a huge space of around 10,000 square meters (equal to 110,000 square feet). It houses literally hundreds of various species, which are contained in amazing underwater displays with an incredible combined total volume of over 5,000,000 liters (1,300,000 U.S. gallons). There is no bigger sea life exhibit anywhere in South East Asia!
To assist in your exploration of the over 6,000 sea creatures who live here, the attractions of this immense complex are divided into a number of different zones before you get to the 4D theatre Bangkok.
You can start with the Rocky Hideout where the (with a leg span of up to three meters!) and the cunning and flexible Giant Pacific Octopus, the largest species in the world with an arm span of 14 3.5 meters, have their lairs.

Take a little rest with feasting your eyes on the beautiful schools of colorful fish darting in and out of the gorgeous coral.
A surprising variety of seahorses will fascinate you. They are stranger and lovelier than you might think!
A short break from the underwater life takes you to the interesting species of the tropical rainforest such as incredibly camouflaging frogs and cute otters.
