    A family of four came to play with Dabao for six months, which coincided with Labor Day. There were a lot of people. It's all family trips. Our family Dabao saw the fish in the tank, dancing and babbling. Big eyes are fixed on fish, penguins, seals, crocodiles and other super-many animals that can only be seen in zoos. There are some rare animals that can't be named. We really need to love and protect them and the environment of the earth, otherwise we can only see them here. Finally, in the underwater world is really eye-opening, sharks, turtles, as well as groups of fish can be harmonious together, swimming around, it is really insightful! It's really a worthwhile trip. How much do you feel about this trip! __________ If you have time to come to Shanghai, you must go to Shanghai Marine Aquarium to see it! You'll certainly make a lot of money, and like me, it's a worthwhile trip! ~ ~ ~ ~

    The aquarium is worth visiting. There are many animals here. Hey hey, especially the impression of sharks, penguins, jellyfish and so on. It's better to study the animal feeding time card at the entrance. It's a good time to see a lot of animals feeding. It's interesting and very beautiful. It's really worth playing here. Video shooting is more, photo shooting is really less, so relatives can experience it by themselves, it's really worth it. Yes, it's on the edge of the Oriental Pearl Tower. There is Xiao Yang Shengjian on the left side of the ocean hall. I remember to eat when I eat, although I personally prefer the old name in the alley.

    Sure enough, it is wise to choose to go after the Spring Festival. There is no need to queue. However, it is unexpected that the planned route, due to the construction of the People's Square subway station, has caused many inconveniences for this trip. If there are tourists to Shanghai before February 10, pay attention to it. The aquarium is for the fulfillment of childhood dream, pretending that big friends and children are amazed by all kinds of fish. Jellyfish are beautiful. It is also the first time to see the fierce sharks at such close range, as well as the real moving Penguin haha. Send out some pictures for you to enjoy.

    Recommended! 160 tickets seem expensive. Actually, it's not bad! Children over 1 meter are required to buy tickets. There are many kinds of marine life in it. It's strange to see it for the first time. And penguins! It's not big. It's all small penguins. Sharks are not very big, with children. Children have little patience. Otherwise, they can play for a long time if they look carefully. It's not a big place, but it's really good inside. Let's take a look at the picture above.

    Lujiazui Metro Station is a pyramid-shaped building. It has to queue for tickets at the entrance, but it is not long. There are a lot of people on weekends, mainly parents and children. The ticket is 160 yuan for adults, and the tour time is about 2 hours. It belongs to the tourist concentrated area (& 180); the tour route is one-way. Just follow the crowd, and the escalator is straight behind the entrance. Connect to the third floor, then go down from the third floor, do not go back, there are snacks, seats out of the hall. Generally speaking, the fare is a little expensive, but it will not be a loss. After all, many marine organisms can not be seen anywhere else. You can go once if you haven't been there.

    Shanghai Marine Aquarium is the only aquarium in the world with an independent exhibition area in China and the Yangtze River Basin to display aquatic organisms with Chinese characteristics. Most of the exhibited organisms are state protected animals, including Chinese sturgeon, carmine, Chinese alligator and baby salamander (giant salamander). South America - "South America has the world's largest freshwater fish species and quantity. Hyoid giant bone, one of the largest freshwater scaly bony fish, also thrives here. The Amazon River is the world's most extensive River basin, where there are few people, covering a large area of tropical primitive jungle, full of mysterious color. Australia : Australian freshwater fish species are few, but most of them are endemic fish not found elsewhere. Why? This is because the Australian continent has been separated from other continental plates for about 50 million years. Fish in the two areas are unable to contact and cross with each other. As a result, Australian freshwater fishes have maintained their own unique characteristics. Africa Region - "Africa has not only Nile River, Congo River and other rivers, but also the Great Rift Valley Lake region of East Africa, which contains many kinds of fish, most notably the Cichlidae fish in Lake Victoria, Lake Tanganyika and Lake Malawi. These lakes were formed 500 to 2 million years ago, when a small number of fish from rivers into the lake adapted to their new environment. After numerous differentiation, they evolved into today's prosperous society. Southeast Asia - "Southeast Asia Tropical Rainforest is one of the oldest tropical rainforests in the world. Its high forest coverage, magnificent natural landscape and rich biodiversity provide abundant food and ideal habitat for the living organisms. A wide variety of large-scale Southeast Asian fish "live and work in peace and contentment" here, the thriving scene is endless. As the only exhibition cylinder in the cold water area, seal cylinder, its semi-arc acrylic cylinder block structure is another unique design of our museum. Here you can get in close contact with four lovely spotted seals. Polar Region - "Listen to the whistling wind, Penguin friends are looking forward to welcoming you. They swayed in "swallowtail dress" to show their charming gentlemanly demeanour. Coastal area - "Enter this exhibition area, you will be shocked by the diversity of marine species, the richness of color and the peculiarity of life habits.

    Although the tickets are too expensive! But I think it's worth it! The undersea tunnel inside is very shocking! Look at the sharks swimming overhead! And the characteristic fish of all continents! Colorful! There are also special exhibition halls of the Yangtze River! Personally, jellyfish are the most fantastic.

    I have been to Pudong University twice before. Now I have two kinds of feelings with my baby. After playing for an afternoon, my baby is very happy. Especially for the protection of the Yangtze River Valley and the last 155 meters of seabed corridor, I have a deep feeling. I recommend that I take my baby to see with me to increase my knowledge. It's cool in summer. I suggest that I bring a long sleeve to my baby!
