The gigantic whale shark is a rare sight in Thailand, and even more so in Pattaya.
But divers and snorkelers had a special 2012 Christmas gift with chance meeting of a four meter whale shark at the Pattaya coral island of Koh Sak.
Whalesharks have been spotted in the southern province of Rayong before but it's been many years since they came so far north towards Bangkok.
The huge fish can be seen interacting with the divers and seemed quite happy to star in the underwater video.
