It is good for family with kids. And dolphin show is awesome. It is better to water and food on your own. Since it is bit costly inside and not good in taste. Even almost all the shops are closed.

if you have children it is not a bad idea to schedule half day in the pole aquarium. As an adult i went twice, there are many marine habitites to see.

This park is remarkebly big. Not only does it have many aquariums, you can also enjoy several shows with seals, walrusses belugas and dolfins. However, wenn we visited the park yesterday the great number of visitors unabled us to see it all.

The actual name of the place is "Ocean Park". This is nice little park with a lot of potential. It is beautifully situated in a bay, with hills on both sides. They have a nice walk way towards the sea where you can sit and watch the fishing boats come in and out of the harbor. The shows were great... More

This place u great. Not very far from city center with some very nice attractions. It can get overcrowded, but we're in china right? But the tickets upfront on taobao and you can just scan the QR and go in, no queues (&you'll save some money). Don't skip the birds part, it's worth it. And walk there - it's few... More

The show with the dolphins was quite the attraction. They always have someone with the dolphins, to ensure their happiness. For the most part, the rest of the aquarium was what you would typically expect. The polar bears, however, looked completely miserable. One was scratching at the side of its room trying to get out.

It's amazing to see the creatures which live in the north and south pole especially Polar Bears and Pinguins. They are so adorable. If you come with children, they will love it.

Expansive and well constructed ocean park with good aquariums, plenty of activities, decent beaches and good food. Of course, there are things that won't be to everyone's taste here (some of the animals seem to have very small enclosures), but it is certainly fun, educational and worth a look.

The first thing to do in any parks is to check out all the show times. Make sure you plan the rest of your tour around these times. Food may be hard to find and its really packed during Holidays.
