Shanghai Ocean Aquarium

We spent Sunday afternoon at the Shanghai Ocean Aquarium, situated near the Pearl Tower in PuDong. The exhibits, which highlighted fish from around the world, were really well done. Highlights included seeing the world's largest crabs, Japanese Giant Spider Crabs, whose leg spans can reach 3.7 meters;  the cartoon-like garden eels, who popped their heads up from the sand; and, walking through the world's longest underwater observation tunnel – 155 meters of viewing excitement, including up close views of sharks, rays, and sea turtles.

  1. That looks like an amazing place. Did it take you back to your snorkeling experience? I liked the eels poking out of the sand.
