Chiang Mai Zoo Aquarium Reopens after Renovation


CHIANG MAI, The Chiang Mai Zoo Aquarium also known as the ‘Sea atop the Mountain’ opened its doors to tourists today after more than a year of renovation.

An investment of almost 30 million baht was made to refurbish both the exterior and interior of the exhibition building, including the freshwater and saltwater animal tanks, stretching up to 133 meters.

The renovation also involved upgrading the life support systems for hundreds of fish species, particularly the 30-strong shark population, which is a highlight of the Chiang Mai Aquarium, ensuring better health care for them.

The Director of the Zoological Organization of Thailand stated that the Chiang Mai Aquarium has replicated important global sites underwater to promote nature conservation and contribute to reducing global warming.

He expressed confidence that the new renovations will attract tourists, especially during the Songkran festival this month.
