The aquarium is in good condition and has a very nice ambiance. The jellyfish displays were very interesting. The sharks and belugas were the highlights. The place was not crowded at all. We did find it a little bit on the expensive side. If you...More

It has a great fish, reef wildlife and jellyfish collection. It also has some sharks and dolphins. We had a great time there. I'm giving it three stars because I found it too expensive. It costs about 160RMB to get in, which is roughly around...More

Do not pay money for this. The delphin show is in chinese and nothing interesting. Aquarium is OK but not worth for 160 CNY

Having been to several Chinese "zoos", I had pretty low expectations, but this was surprisingly good. Perfect for little kids with only a few hours' attention spans. The aquarium itself is not that big, certainly not as far as major aquariums go (Osaka, Monterey, etc)...More
