  • One of the best aquariums I have ever visited. It can be a world-class aquarium to visit. From the entrance reception staff to the contents of the whole exhibit was so perfect. I tremendously enjoyed my visit it was totally worth it. Two points advice for the future : at the fish feeding there is nowhere to clean your hands, no sink no tissue. Secondly the gift shop does not accept any form of cards which is hard for us, since our cash money was not available.
  • I love how they encourage visitors to learn about whatever they put inside the aquarium through question and answer with stamping station and at the of the visit they reword with sourvenir. I love the insect section. There are variety of bug. But that section just too dark. I can see how interesting those bug in the dark. But some animal in the aquarium not as what they indicated. Jelly fishes and sea horses are dead and dying. At the end section, there are aquarium with same type of fish seems like they have no plan yet to put anything. I hope they be better.
