Not having good range of attractive species; only penguins are the eye catcher. Good to visit if you are traveling with kids.

The place was not worth the visit. Comparing it to the aquarium in Siam Paragon mall in Bangkok, Thailand, the underwater world was a disappointment. Not a lot of variety even though all fishies are nice.

It is obviously good for kids or who are having such experience first time. Somehow I did not find it exciting or value for money.
