We bring along 2 small kids to visit its aquarium for about 3 hours. They have a good collection of marine lives, both fresh and salt waters. It has 3 major exhibition halls - Water of Taiwan, Coral Kingdom and Waters of the World. Try to allocate your time nicely if you have limited time. Entrance fee NT450, Student NT250,... More
