Polar Ocean World, Qingdao
(3.4/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Feel the chill at Polar Ocean World, an aquarium with a particular emphasis on the wildlife found at each pole. See bottlenose dolphins, sea lions, walruses, whales, sharks, and arctic wolves at the facility, as they swim, laze around, and feed in enclosures designed to resemble their natural habitat. Expert trainers put on regular performances with the animals, so pull up a seat at the main theater to watch the synchronized routines. Note that some visitors have reported poor conditions for the animals--read up on the latest reviews before going, or consider an alternative attraction. Work out when and for how long to visit Polar Ocean World and other Qingdao attractions using our handy Qingdao vacation builder.

  • 在海洋馆看海豚表演,有幸上去近距离与海豚接触,不过,也被它调皮地喷了一身水,哈哈,这个经历好难忘,每每想起都会笑好久。 
  • The location is very nice, especially on rainy days, as it is a covered environment. We saw dolphins, penguins, white whale, beluga, seals ... All beautiful. Worth seeing the dolphins and beluga whales. The only downside is that most of the information and guidelines are written in Chinese, which makes the ride a little less productive. But it's worth the visit.

  • Don't support this attraction. It is a poorly maintained crowded day of setting animals live in less than acceptable conditions.
