Phuket Aquarium

Guide to the Aquarium in Phuket Town


Phuket Aquarium is one of those sights kids just loves, and if it's a hot day so would any parent, just to get into an nice cool air conditioned place, something that your kids might enjoy more than visiting another shopping mall. And there might even be something here you might find interesting. There is over 30 tanks with saltwater and freshwater creatures, mainly fishes. It was recently renovated and an tunnel was added where you may enjoy seeing the fishes from almost all angels.

In the 17th century, the Dutch, the English, and from the 1680s the French, competed with each other for trade with the island of Phuket (the island was named Junkseilon at that time), which was valued as a very rich source of tin.
