The last time I was here was more than 10 years ago. In my recent visit, I found out that there's not much of addition to the attraction. The place also looked old. It may worth the first time visit but not a repeat trip.

Regular "Big Aquarium". Can recommend if you haven't gone to one any underwater world before. Can definitely skip it if you have seen it somewhere in better locations like bangkok or Singapore
