Visiting S.E.A Aquarium
At the end of November, we went to visit one of the latest tourist attractions in Singapore, The South East Asia Aquarium, located in Sentosa Island. The last time we went to visit aquarium with Naia was in Busselton, West Australia when Naia was only 10 months-old.
Actually there are two aquariums in Sentosa Island, the old Underwater World Singapore and the new S.E.A Aquarium. S.E.A Aquarium was said to have the world biggest fish tank at the moment. So before other aquarium beats that record, why don’t we pay a visit. We had to buy one-day pass to visit the Aquarium, SGD29 for adult, SGD20 for kid (4-12), and free for baby.
Before we reached the aquarium hall, we passed exhibition gallery. This exhibition gallery was part of the Maritime Experiential Museum that displayed the history of silk road. Quite educative for primary school students but a bit too early for Naia. The only attraction that impressed Naia at the exhibition gallery was the paper do-it-yourself of Asian junk ship miniature. She spent several good-minutes to create her ship.
The main aquarium attractions were located at the lower level. There were ten aquariums, smaller ones, bigger ones and giant one. Near the entrance, we could see bigger aquarium with shipwreck inside (The Strait Karimata and Java Sea Aquarium). There were also under-the-feet aquarium, above-the-head aquariums, see-and-touch display of sea creatures, before we arrived at the giant aquarium, the Open Ocean. Naia quite enjoyed most of the displays, especially the see-and-touch display, where she could touch the starfish. Baby Neishia was amazed with colorful fish and other sea creatures. Both girls were also fascinated with the giant aquarium where they could see giant manta rays ‘flying’ inside the fish tank. Just before the exit, we passed another over-the-head aquarium filled with various types of shark.
Whatta day with a lot of fish !!!
