China – Shanghai – Shanghai Ocean Aquarium

– SEPTEMBER 27, 2015

After the Shanghai Museum we crossed the river via subway to make our way to the wonderful Shanghai Ocean Aquarium.  Its an impressive collection of marine life from all across the globe.  It contains a 120-meter tunnel that takes visitors through a coastal reef, open ocean, a kelp cave, shark cove, and a coral reef, and is one of the longest such tunnels in the world.
