Penguins, sharks, rays and too many other fish to mention all displayed with signs in english. A moving sidewalk keeps the patrons moving along at a decent pace but not too fast to get a good view of all the fish. It should take less than 2 hours to complete the whole thing.

It's a pretty decent aquarium with interesting fish that I haven't seen back in America. The tunnel with all the fish is long but actually made me feel motion sickness. I'm not much of a museum person or in this case an aquarium or zoo person.

Very nice aquarium. Signs both English and Chinese. I like that there are multiple times you have tunnels where the fish are above you...especially the last one, which is 150 meters long and has a moving walkway so it doesn't get clogged with people. Also the jellyfish tanks are amazing.

nice visit. lots of varieties of sea animals. might take more than two hrs to cover everything in detail but can be covered in one to two hrs if you are quick

Needs more natural planting and some fish could do with larger tanks but what is there is very clean and fish look healthy. Very good variety

Great place to take kids on a week day. Weekends and holidays will be a bit crazy.

Cramped, unclean and overpriced. I suggest giving this one a miss.

Kids enjoyed the visit, but never ask to go back.

Was ok neat treadmill to run you through the long aquarium tube slowly. You cannot turn around once through a section so if you want to see feedings you must stay to watch the feeding and not go down escalator until you are done with that section.
