Highlights and Features

The best way to see fish and other sea creatures is, of course, by diving or snorkelling off Samui or the famed Koh Tao, but Samui Aquarium offers an alternative for those with limited time or ability to dive, and for families travelling with young children. The aquarium's design is modelled after an old fishermen's village, giving visitors a taste of history as well as an interesting array of marine life to observe.

In the zoo, among the animals on display are tigers, leopards, otters and monkeys plus numerous colourful birds including parrots, hornbills and sea eagles. Animal trainers put on daily tiger, bird, and sea lion shows. Those who have been to more cutting-edge wildlife attractions in other parts of the world may find this one a bit dated in its focus on animal entertainment over education. However, for some thrilling up-close views of some of the world’s most exotic and elusive animals, Samui Aquarium & Tiger Zoo is the place to go.
