  • The traffic is especially convenient, just on the edge of the subway. There is a wide variety of aquariums, a lot of fish, jellyfish super beautiful. Because during the summer vacation, there are too many children.

  • It is an amusement park type aquarium. There are also attractions... There's also a water tank... There's also a show... There is also a parade! There are many exhibits such as killer whales, manati, beluga, and koutei penguins. There was a whale shark pavilion, but there was no whale shark. I wonder if they're coming from now on.

  • A great time for friends or alone! Lots of exhibits and details in both English and Chinese. Three floors and the largest underwater tunnel in an aquarium in the world. Definitely a "Top 10" thing to do while in Shanghai.
  • It is one of the best aquariums I have been through. Its huge and offers a lot to see. It does not have huge room to sit and just stare at under water life like the one in Singapore but yes it has a auto-walk which takes you to under the panoramic view of the under water life. Good Experience.
