A true nightmare. Hordes of families with screaming children. All shouting, screaming, eating, running, pushing around. You can hardly see any fish because parents will put the kids up front ‘on’ the window. There is a huge shopping space (probably as big as the whole...More

Do not pay money for this. The delphin show is in chinese and nothing interesting. Aquarium is OK but not worth for 160 CNY

Having been to several Chinese "zoos", I had pretty low expectations, but this was surprisingly good. Perfect for little kids with only a few hours' attention spans. The aquarium itself is not that big, certainly not as far as major aquariums go (Osaka, Monterey, etc)...More

Skip the zoo and go straight to the aquarium! The exhibits are very nicely put together, although the enclosures seem small and very basic the animals seem happy. It's quite pricy compared to the zoo but much more enjoyable.

Many colorful and rare fish. And a entertaining Aqua show, though all in chinese. It was pretty crowded, but far cleaner and more interesting than the zoo.

Located close to the Bejing Zoo it should be a must-see attraction. Our expectations were high, because the aquarium entrance fee is quite expensive compared with tickets for the Zoo. Unfortunately, the aquarium looks more like a noisy shopping mall, despite some interesting spots can...More
