This was a great experience and I found the cheapest ticket on Thrillophilia. There was no admission issue. When showing the voucher printout at ticket window, we found that they already had a list of online bookings and they verified our names against it and let us enter. The ocean tunnel was great - we saw sharks, sting rays, large fishes and "giant of siam" - huge fishes bigger than humans. the feeding shows were awesome! the sting rays were cute and the diver hugged them and fed them small shrimps. The fishes were fighting for the bread crumbs and small fishes that the diver was feeding. It was worth visiting and truly a memorable experience. It may not be as big as the Sea Life Bangkok Ocean World in Bangkok but the price is really very cheaper than it. A must visit for anyone visiting Pattaya.

This was a great activity and one of the most budget friendly options for water sports. There was parasailing, sea walking, jet ski, banana boat ride, water slide, glass bottom boat and snorkeling activity. Sea food lunch was good - 1 fried chicken leg, 1 crab and 1 prawn for each, and noodles, rice, lettuce, chicken soup with medium chicken pieces, and a fish to be shared on the table with 5-6 people. Please note Free hotel pick up is only provided if you stay along North Pattaya road, Central Pattaya road, South Pattaya Road or along the beach near these roads. Otherwise you have to pay 200 THB per person (so better to take taxi/Grab/songthaew tuc-tuc if more than 1 person). Also for snorkeling, if you have glasses and high negative power (Mine is : -3.5), you would not able to see much as you have to leave your glasses to wear the snorkeling mask. If you know swimming it is better, they do provide life jackets to all (it keeps you afloat always) and net rafts to non-swimmers. Since I was a non-swimmer I had to hold the rope and row the net raft with my hands to roam. If you know swimming you can roam around and view the corals properly. For snorkeling your nose is covered in mask and you have to breathe through mouth with a pipe. My father was uncomfortable with it and came out of water soon. Just take a note. This was a great experience.
From the humid tropical heat of Thailand to the freezing Antartican climate, it was a short but wonderful experience at the Frost Magican Ice of Siam. Hard to miss, this wonderful tourist attraction is between the Dolphinarium and the Sriracha Tiger Zoo. So we were able to visit it on the same day. It is hard to miss as it is on the highway. Redeeming the voucher was a breeze. We got our tickets at the main gate. The first zone - The Himmapan - has white structures / sculptures. But since we went in the mid afternoon heat, we did not spend much time here. We were then handed knee length hooded coats to wear at the Frozen zone. A tip - bring some mittens and boots. I was wearing open footwear and struggled with the cold. You can rent gear at additional cost. There is a step-up zone to allow your body to acclamatize before stepping into the sub-zero room. The ice sculptures are wonderful. They have placed non-skid mats at places to stand and take pics - a very thoughtful gesture. An ice slide, an igloo and a tuk-tuk made of ice were the main attractions. The ice bar serves soft drinks in an ice glass for a coupon. There is a tiny amount of soft drink. But its the experience that counts. We then went through a step down room before going out to the food zone. This place has some snacks and drinks. All thought it is a lovely place, the main reason to come here is for the ice sculptures. These are placed close to each other in not-a-large room and so one cannot stay inside for long. The experience was short, but memorable.

Beautiful show, although I feel it isn't the same as it used to be! This is my second time at Alcazar and the show was just as much fun. The glamour quotient seems to be lesser this time, but the music, the costumes and the dances were still beautiful. Some of the numbers are same as my visit over 5 years back, but they are good unique numbers and were worth watching again. The photos with the models after the show is day-light robbery (It used to be voluntary gifts earlier). There were a few tech-styled numbers which have been recently added and they were brilliant. The show used to have a lot of ladyboys, but this seems lesser now.
A beautiful place to visit in Pattaya especially for children. You can see all the fishes while moving through tunnels within the pool. The fish feeding shows were lovely. In fact the diver even hugged the fishes while he was feeding them. Another attraction is the anti-gravitation tank where water does not overflow from the bottom of the tank and you can directly feed the small fishes. Their main attraction is the Giant of Siam, an Amazon fish. You shall enjoy its feeding show as well. The sting rays were really big, sometimes covering you from the top like an umbrella! Overall a very good place to visit. Note that there is no issue in tickets as the counters already had the information of my arrival. They'll scan the QR code in the ticket and give the tickets.

Great experience, trainer was good, carry swim suits. Water wasn't too clean. Pick up was late, I was initially scheduled to morning but the driver didn't show up and had to move to evening but was worth it. If it's your first time - I would recommend it.

Pretty good experience, pick up was on expected time. Food was great. Book the complete package, else you may end up paying more on spot. Price difference would be around 500-1000 bahts. Seawalking/parasailing is highly recommended.
