  • Located in the center of the action of the Pudong Lujiazui area, this very popular aquarium is a good place to take the kids or just visit on your own if you happen to love aquariums (like I do). Duri...  more »
  • 門票超可愛的,160人民幣,最可惜的就是看完覺得遊客太多了!!問我有沒有值回票價的感覺,只能說:普通!!雖然還是有許多值得一看的魚類水母鯊魚,以及令人印象深刻的長隧道,但就是缺乏一種驚艷的感覺~整體還可以。 
  • Very nice aquarium, especially the glass tunnel is really enjoyable. Very similar to many other aquariums all around the world, though. Nothing special, but nice. Children will love it.

  • Generally there are shows on each day, maybe because i went on a weekday entrancr told no shows that day.. nice aquarium with glass tunnel ect.... ticket is around 120 per person..
  • I was a different experience. I didn't have it in the plan, but we decided to go get in. I like you go through tunnels surrounding by the fishes and different sea animals, even I must say it made me a little bit nervous. I enjoyed it pretty much. It has two floors and the negative part is once you get the stairs down... there is no way back, so you better look at the whole floor before you go downstairs.
  • Definitely not the best place to visit around here. There is no plenty of variety and there is plenty of other things to see around other than this.
  • I loved this place because it looks like natural environment.
  • We were there at a time without to many other tourists. A lot of different fish and sea animals, and it seemed clean for the animals. Worth a visit.
