Probably the best location at Pingtung. You haven't been in an Aquarium until you have seen this one. Beautiful and astonishing.

I had never heard of this place before touring the Kenting region with my family and had no idea there was a world class aquarium there. This place is a gem. It is humongous. It has three different pavilions--Waters of Taiwan, Coral Kingdom, and Waters of the World--all of which have huge, mesmerizing tanks of marine life. Waters of Taiwan... More

Park is neatly divided into 3 main areas ~ taiwan waters, world marine and others. Mostly animation and only seen a few animals ~ eg penguins, belugas and other small fishes. Could do better.

This attraction carries a combination name of museum and aquarium yet in fact it is an aquarium. It was built on an interesting model, Built, Operate and Transfer (BOT) by which the land was given to the operator free of charge and the company with sole right of operation had to build it and operate it with some portion of...

So, I LOVE aquariums. And being from California, we have some of the best in the world. This one is just really awesome. Don't expect too many big marine mammals, but this place does a wonderful job of making their place interesting, inviting, engaging, and informative. It's definitely up there with the best I've been to. Be prepared to spend... More

We stayed for more than half a day at the museum. Lots of fun and information for the kids. Most interesting is to watch the white whales playing in the water. Strongly recommended for family going with kids.

We went to this aquarium multiple times, since my boy enjoyed it so much. It is the biggest I've seen and the most impressive collection of marine life I've encountered. The whale shark tank is my favorite. They devoted a whole panoramic room with roles of seating to this creature. You can sit there and watch it swim all day... More

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
