Chiang Mai Zoo Aquarium

aquarium1

The Chiang Mai Zoo Aquarium is well worth a visit. It is certain to capture the hearts and minds of young and old. It is located at the foot of the mountain past Chiang Mai University in the actual Chiang Mai zoo grounds which is also a great way to spend a day.


It is South East Asia's longest and most spacious underwater pathways -- crystal clear "SeaTube" tunnels will place you directly in the center of enormous 360-degree aquatic habitats. Each of seven individual habits are distinct environments, completely self-contained, and stocked with a wonderful cross-section of native species.


This Aquarium design allows fresh water and salt water creatures to coexist under one huge roof. The inspiration for this astonishing concept comes from the great Mekong.
Aside from its appeal as an exciting natural attraction, the Chiang Mai Zoo Aquarium also serves as an important center for the study of marine life.
