  Phuket Aquarium
by Myndo

The Phuket Aquarium is a newer attraction.
It is located on a land arm in the south east of Phuket Town. Follow the road until you come to the farthest end.

The Aquarium is well done, and offers several tanks with fresh water and salt water fish.
They also have a tunnel where you can walk through a big tank, filled with sharks and mantas - something I have until now only seen in very big Aquariums.
This Aquarium is actually more on the smaller side, but made with much view on the details, definitely worth a visit.

In the entrance hall you also find a "Touch Pool". Much fun for the younger - and those who stayed young in the heart, because in here you can find sea life to touch. Unpoisonous of course. I would not dare touch anything when diving and snorkeling, because you never know. Well, here you do, so go ahead and take that sea star in the hand...

Also interesting is the exhibition about endangered sea turtels. They hatch them from eggs and let them free when ready.
