Located in Lujiazui Finance and Trade Zone in Pudong District, Shanghai Ocean Aquarium is the biggest sea aquarium in Asia, and one of the biggest in the world, covering a total area of 20,500 square meters. Its theme is ”Spanning five continents by a connection of water”. The main pyramid-shaped building has three floors and eight exhibition zones: China Zone, South America Zone, Australia Zone, Africa Zone, Cold Water Zone, Polar Area Zone, Sea and Shore Zone and Deep Ocean Zone, all of which feature unique, mesmerizing displays of sea life.
The famous aquarium is home to more than 300 species and more than 12,000 rare fishes and endangered species, including poisonous frogs, moonfishes, leafy sea dragons, jellyfishes and king penguins, so it’s well worth the trip. From the color-changing giant cuttlefish to the giant Japanese spider crabs, they have it all, offering a very unique and complete experience of marine biodiversity. There are four underwater tunnels, from which you can enjoy a 180 or 270 degree view of the sea wildlife, the longest being 155 meters in total.
