  • Fascinating place with the sea animals so well done on arranging each floor according to the depth of the sea. And the soft toys are super cute also! Definitely worth visiting! When I see the otters swimming and washing their face. It is so cute! Everyone were crowding around to look.
  • This aquarium is so big and it exhibits a lot of different sea creatures
