For reasons unknown to us, the Phuket Aquarium isn’t visited as much as Phuket zoo and yet is about 600 times better, in my opinion. It’s also in stunning Panwa, which is worth visiting for its sheer beauty. The tickets are cheap too! Perhaps our daughter’s favorite part of the aquarium is the last section before the exit, home to several gigantic groupers. After you’ve finished with the interior, make sure to do the nature walk that begins after the food and beverage section at the exit. It leads you along the beach and to an old boat, and if you continue you will get to see some large turtles in captivity.
