To take kids to visit is good. Its not a very big place but still worth the visit. In front of the beach, so after go out, we can walk around the beach.

Entrance feels that you are in a science/natural history museum with exhibits in glass jars and stuffed whales but once you have passed these you see live marine life. Travelator takes you through the main aquarium with rays and sharks swimming over your head, really cool. There was a show at the end and although I didn't understand what was being said it was easy to follow and great for kids. Good value for money and lovely views over the beach and coastline when outside.

World-class aquarium. One of the best underwater exhibitions I have seen. It boasts the world's largest water column made of a single see-through acrylic material. It rivals such famous spectacles as the ones in California, New Zealand and Atlanta. The zillions of fish and marine creatures of all sizes challenges the imagination. It's a great place to take the kids, young and old, especially the ones with a great deal of curiosity!

There can be only one. Sea World that is and it resides in San Diego, CA.

From the initial sight of wall to wall bio lab style formaldehyde bottled fish to my first stuffed Killer Whale sighting I was less than enthusiastic or impressed rather disgusted and bored.

I will say this. The Chinese try and try hard but if your expecting anything more than alligators stuffed in small surroundings with coins layed at their feet and back yes on their back well your going to be disappointed.

Their flagship large aquarium with conveyor belt shuttle would have been great, except the glass reflected a coke bottle image so that I could only view for a few moments until my head hurt or maybe that was the wall to wall people yelling and clicking their cameras and smartphones.

Save your ¥130 per Adult(s) and ¥65 per Children entry fee. Spend it on a decent meal or a upgraded room in one of Qingdao's finer hotels.

Where is Green Peace when you need them?
