This aquarium is large and houses a kelp forest and a tank containing a young whale shark. The exhibits are well presented and you can spend an entire day exploring the aquarium. Of particular note when I was there were the Beluga Whales who did a show and are very fun to watch. I've visited there twice so far and... More

This big facility carries several themes and environment displaying different marine life. It is both educating and entertaining for all ages to visit. Sad that the location does not give a huge push for the attraction to tourists as it is kinda out of place where you need to travel close to an hour by taxi or tour bus from... More

There is a program with the aquarium that you can pay to spend the night. My wife found the details on their website. I know it is somewhat pricy, but it was outstanding! They gave us a tour, fed us dinner, let us feed the fish and then redid the tour when the lights went out. We were allowed to... More

We brought the kids here expecting to play in the wading pools/fountains, but it was too windy and overcast for the kids to be comfortable playing in the water. That said, they still had fun. There were changing areas that had showers and bathrooms. We were the only ones using them, since we went on a weekday. The kids enjoyed... More

The museum is a bit out of the way from Kenting, but if you're genuinely interested in ocean life, I think this is worth taking a look. The museum was excellent and informative. The displays were impressive, and there were plenty of fossils and 3-D videos to watch. The aquarium was also interesting. There were a great variety of fish... More

Learnt some knowledge from the visit. 3D movie is the must-do thing, don't skip it! You may need 3-4 hours to finish the all halls.

Much to see, impressively designed. You need at least 3-4 hours to visit all parts (fish tank, penguins, sea birds, sea mammals). The 3-D movie, explaining the evolution of sea creatures was fun. Definitely worth the money (a a great option for a rainy day). The only bad thing: some of the fish and sea mammals appear to be locked... More
