Nakhon Phanom aquarium

Always wondered what creatures hide in the Mekong river. Come visite the Nakhom Phanom freshwater aquarium and see the gigant Mekong catfish. The aquarium is about 5 kilometers outside town, admission 30 baht.

The aquarium houses some of the fish from the Mekong river. A few small fish are in little aquariums but they also have some very large catfish in a huge tank with a glass tunnel to walk through.


To get there just rent a bike or take a tuktuk from the bus station. The aquarium is not that large so to visit will take just 2 or 3 hours including the ride from Nakhon Phanom. Opening hours are from 9am till 4pm. My advise is to be there early to avoid the heat and large groups as from time to time schools will visit the aquarium making you the attraction instead of the fish.
