  • This is the second time that I have been there in three months. I do find it fascinating each time I am there and learn something new on each visit. Going in the afternoon is good advice, as it may ge...  more »

  • Admission with 160 RMB for adults is now too high. Inside there are several aquariums. Blending also looks like a Sealife. The only nice was the tunnel which is approx. 155 meters long. For children it is nice but they quickly lose the desire.

  • 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.
