Very nice large aquarium. Also very crowded! They offered a dolphin show - such as you would see at Marine World in the US. Large grounds could easily have spent half a day here.

What a sight. The cafe next to the main tank should be a must stop. Try to get reserve seating right against the glass. The whale sharks are so huge each took a while to swim by right next to you. After your meal you...More
