It should be a must in Bangkok visit, specially with kids. Hotel pickup service was fantastic, in time. Children enjoyed most the orangutan and dolphin shows. Better to skip the river cruise which I felt like wastage of money. The last part of coming out through the open zoo was fantastic- all openly moving animals including lions and tigers were roaming near the bus.
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.
"awesome experience. with good food, breeze views. loved it."

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.
The place is just lit with people and colours and the food is mindblowing. Thanks a lot to Thrillophilia for making my trip comfortable and truly memorable!!”
It was a totally amazing experience. Everything was very well coordinated and arranged. All thanks to Thrillophilia for this amazing trip.
The package tour was well organized by Thrillophilia.All transfers and arrangement was provided as per tour itinerary.Accommodation and food were very nice.
Sometimes the key to the success of your holidays is to have a well-organized tour. This was very true when my friend and I travelled to Bangkok. I was amazed by the services provided by thrillophilia
I definitely recommend to anyone who is looking to hit the highlight of the Phuket... our tour guide was awesome
