The best experience of sea life till date. It overseeded my previous experience at underwater world pattaya. Getting tickets was hassle free - just show the QR code and get your ticket from Information Desk. Best feeding shows observed here. The sea otter feeding show was specially enjoyable with the otters asking for more food by shaking their hands above their chests. Next the penguin show, diver show, sea life 3D show, shark feeding show, etc. were awesome. You can chill around as it is cool inside with cafeteria everywhere. Those sharks in giant aquariums really amazed me and they are living in harmony with other fishes for the past 10 years (as learnt). The ambience was great with dim lights everywhere. A great place for kids to enjoy. There were numerous fishes as well, including the famous Giant of Siam - an Amazon fish.

Best jungle tour ever! Safari world is great where you can observe wildlife closely that includes birds, giraffes, rhinos, etc. The main attractions are tiger feeding and lion feeding inside safari world (which we were lucky to see) where a woman in the rear of the car inside a cage feeds the tigers and the lions from inside. As learnt only she can come near to them as they know her scent. It was nearly a half an hour tour through the jungle life and it was a thrilling experience. The Marine park was also great with many human and animal shows such as Orangutan show, Cowboy stunt show, Spy war, Bird show, etc. and the notable Dolphin show which was best among all. Guys please do not miss this show. The international buffet was also great with varieties of dishes though you can try out Indian buffet as well. Thanks to thrillophilia for making this trip memorable.

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.

Soubhik Kumar Snorkeling at Pattaya
Excellent
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.

Superb
Thrilling! This is a once in a lifetime experience and we loved the seamless before and after sales service that we got. We took this trip for our 25th wedding anniversary and we couldn’t have made a better choice regarding the destination. The desert safari is a simply must-do part of the Dubai trip and should not be missed. Definitely looking forward to another trip with our children and grandkids, hopefully.

Delicious food! This was an evening to remember and totally made the trip seem worth it. We did not face any delays in transfers or stay thanks to Thrillophilia and its dedicated team which made our Dubai trip a ‘happy’ one. As an adventure freak, I especially enjoyed the quad biking along with my family. Our photos have made me nostalgic to take another trip to this sunny paradise again!

We had an excellent experience the whole trip was made very memorable thanks to the hassle-free booking experience made possible by Thrillophila. We felt that it was really worth the price we paid for the unforgettable moments of enjoyment we got during this trip. We had a very decent and friendly guide who catered to our needs and was very friendly.

We managed to get a cracker of a deal through Thrillophilia and had no issues in booking our trip. Almost felt it was a bit of a steal considering the prices. Cannot recommend our trip without special mention to our guide during the desert safari who made the experience memorable. Great trip for families to take. Also enjoyed the Dhow ride in the morning hours and all the shopping that I managed to do.
