In 1962 King Bhumibhol and Queen Sirikit came to Nong Yat Reservoir during their royal visit to Nakhon Phanom. Located next to Nakhon Phanom Municipality, the reservoir covers around 2,500 rai. It is home to various kinds of marine life and became an important breeding facility. Nong Yat Aquarium is of medium size where it houses a large vivarium for extinguished and existing kind of fish from Mae Khong river. A highlight is an underwater tunnel where you can enjoy observing fish behavior. There is also an exhibition on Mekong fish, a modern audiovisual room for 50 seats and a souvenir shop. This building is known as a modern and useful freshwater aquarium.
