The biggest aquarium in the world doesn't need a ticket to be appreciated. We did buy for us, more for my son, but actually there wasn't anything really special inside. Seeing it from the outside is enough.

The experience as general was ok; but, below my expectations. The tunnel was very short, the upper floor was usual. It is ok to try it for once
