Samui Aquarium is open 7 days a week from 9:00 am – 6:00 pm. We have mixed reviews for that place. First, the price is quite expensive: 750 baht per ticket. Children are cheaper. You are 4 people, that’s 3,000 baht already. Second, it’s quite old and not really nice. But the price include a sealion show, the aquarium, a bird show, a small zoo and a tiger show.

The Aquarium is old but has nice specimen of fish. It is dark inside, probably for you not to see that it is old,but it makes fish look nicer!

Some fish like these sharks are really in small ponds. The Aquarium in Rayong, for example, is much nicer and admission is about 30 baht! Or the Nakhon Ratchasima Zoo worths it for about 100 baht per person! You will spend hours, have access to a water park, etc. But not here. It’s limited to an aquarium, a small zoo with birds and squirrels, and a tiger show.

One thing is nice: The sealions show is great. It normally starts at 1:30. Funny.

Take a picture with a sealion at the end for 100 baht.

Later, you can visit parts with birds, but again, it’s quite old. Small cages, and not nice.

Birds and other animals (like squirrels, small monkeys) are inside these cages.

At 2:30pm, it’s the bird show. Nothing to be impressed, but you will see some nice birds. The tiger show was about 15 minutes MAXIMUM.

That was a lucky picture with bad light. A leopard did only one jump and he is right in the middle!

But if you are in Samui and don’t know what to do, if you are tired of beaches, restaurants, bars, and need another activity, or if you are in family, then, the aquarium and tiger show might be for you. In total, we stayed between about 2 hours 30 minutes to see everything. This place is located into a resort called Samui Orchid.
