    I went to see of any flying penguins, taking advantage of conveniently located on the roof of the city visible in the sky Penguin. Appreciating the with overcast skies, but the photos are beautiful. You don't put up an umbrella even if it was raining because form looks up. I just got a good length and variety show was about 15 minutes and is short, not widely in customers to move smoothly.

    9:26 1F elevator Hall arrived, but already numbered tickets distributed. 10:00-I got a 10:15 tickets. Waited for about a 15-minute ride in an elevator. To buy tickets, the matrix. You buy the tickets in advance, and good. Penguin outdoor gardens will close for lunch and saw the smooth. Also in the gift shop of a lot of people gave up on buying.

    Amazing aquarium inside a shopping mall. Felt very atmospheric and there weren't many people there at the time. Some jaw-dropping creatures within!

    One of the best aquarium we visited. It's small but there are lots of things to see. The shark tank was great with lots of fish and a few sharks swimming. Then a diver got into the tank and talked to the audiences. Great for little children. Then there was this strange looking Ocean Sunfish. Great place to visit if you are in Sunshine City.

    The aquarium is nice however it is so packed. You can't even look at the fish with the amount of people there. Perhaps you can try to see it in a weekday when it might be less crowded.

    I like this place. They have a lot of this small aquarium with a different species of aquatic life. They also have a very big aquarium that has difficult marine inhabitants. They also have a show where trained seals does some tricks.
