  • I'm not from aquariums, but I was tired and thought I'd relax by visiting the aquarium in shanghai. Really enjoyed that in transparent tunnel where you can watch Tiger sharks and huge manta rays swim over your head. From gape.

  • So stay tuned because the aquarium in a large aquarium and China was for the first time I went. However, because China was a weekend ticket purchase from long lines. Sure enough, in the great people. Many kinds of fish, fish and jellyfish area long tunnel (temashita entrance restrictions status at that time, trail walking and so on! ), And enjoy it! It is recommended to go to the Aquarium is the admission price, so not like the vacant.

  • 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.
