This newly opened aquarium boasts the world's largest salt water tank which hosts several whale sharks (also the only place in the world to see these fish in captivity) among some 50,000 other fish.
There are many exhibits, including a few hands-on areas to touch small rays, sand sharks, horseshoe crabs, etc.
You can plan on spending a good half day to see everything. There is also a snack bar/restaurant if you want to make a whole day of it.

For an extra charge there are several behind-the-scenes tours available as well.
