Singapore: SEA Aquarium

12 Aug

For the last stop of our short 4-day trip to Singapore, we visited what was touted as the world’s largest aquarium – S.E.A. aquarium.

The place has 3-levels. You start off with a mini-museum which is currently featuring an Omani Dhow, replicas of Chinese junk, Indian Dhow, Indonesian Borobudur ship and others. You pass by the 2nd level to make your way to the SEA Aquarium on the 3rd level.

The 3rd level is divided into 7 areas – Shipwreck Habitat, Discovery Touch Pool, Ocean Journey, Open Ocean, Ocean dome, moray eel and shark seas area. The place was packed to the brim. We just essentially walked through the first 2 areas.

I enjoyed the Sea Corals and the Jelly Fishes. You don’t need flash photography to take good pictures of the sea animals behind the aquarium or glass as they are well lit using ambient lighting. All pictures were taken using my iPhone Camera360 app.

This is the portion that made it to the Guiness World Record – the largest viewing aquarium.

Would have enjoyed it better without that much of a crowd. After the aquarium, we quickly headed back to Orchard road for some last minute shipping.

Till next time, Singapore!
