You get to touch stingrays at the end. Totally awesome. The rest of the aquarium is okay, nice to spend an hour or so for family. We went on a Tuesday Morning and it was crowded with Chinese Tourists, not sure how crowded it is...More

Amazing 8 level aquariums, gives you a feeling you are descending into the ocean as you move down from the 8th floor and continue to more amazing tanks- Tip: pay attention to feeding times and head to exhibits and tanks when the animals are being...More

This was a highlight for the trip. This is very interactive as a suprise. You can get very close to penguins and touch stingrays or sharks. Very big and worth paying.

The highlight is the huge tank in the middle of the room. As you descent with it, you see everything from all different angles. Loved seeing the rays and sharks!!!

The setup of this aquarium is amazing. They start you up at the top of the aquarium and work you down through it’s 8 floors. They have feeding time schedules on each exhibit showing what times you can return to watch each animal eating. Due...More

Check if your hotel sells the tickets. we stayed at universal port and they sold the tickets and ferry tickets also. Very easy and not crowded day we went. Never saw any lines to get it. Well organised. Enjoy.
