Delightfully spacious and well-lit aquarium filled with a great selection of Asian fish. The highlight is the impressive tunnels where you under the tanks and surrounded by fish.

One of the best aquariums in China. Get quite crowded at weekends. Food options and souvenirs/merchandise bit a disappointment. Easy to access from Lujiazhui metro station.

We went there on a weekend, around 2 in the afternoon. A bunch of crowd. I was expecting a spectacular penguin show, but I was a bit disappointed, the penguins were small in size and they were just being fed normally. No tricks, no show....More

Packed as sardines during the whole visit, this place should respect a quota of entries, because it didn’t feel safe : dark alleys (normal for an aquarium) overcrowded with families and young kids, linear path. Imagine the consequences of a crowd movement in these conditions.

You need time to look at everything here one of the best Aquariums that I have visited. Multi level place and some levels you go down quite a distance.

.The price per adult is 160 yuan. You can spend your time better in Shanghai than visiting this aquarium.
