Excellent Review from Tripadvisor

1. Its good for the whole day in the under water world
I visited there in April first week. I was little late to arrive there (at 3 PM) so could not visit all the place. So its better to visit there early so that we can pass our whole day. The entry fee is 150 for adult and 50% discount for the foreigners studying in PLA university when the Identity card is shown to them. It was good experience as I visited for the first time in such huge aquarium.

2. water park
Better to visit around 10 am. ticket price is 150 yuan for adult and if you are a student then its only 75 yuan, you have show the redpass to them. its a amazing place and there are many shows, dolphins , fish feeding , etc.. so go early. its close to perpel mountain as well, so you may visit perplle mountain cable car in the evening ...

3. Enjoyabe for Kids and Grown Ups
Although is not a big Aquarium, it contains a sufficient variety of species, activities and a dolphin show. Polar section with polar bears, foxes, penguins and other species appears most interesting, although for the animals demonstrated there might not be very comfortable place especially during Summer time. Dolphin show is really entertaining, therefore it is hard to find a seat. Overall during weekends and holidays the aquarium is very crowded but at the end you feel that you have enjoyed your visit.
