Taipingyang Underwater World, an aquatic wonder

Visitors to Beijing should make it a point to explore the spectacular Taipingyang Underwater World. This splendid aquarium never fails to draw the attention of the visitor with its unusual and innovative exhibits and displays. Staying at a convenient service apartment Beijing offers such as the Somerset ZhongGuanCunBeijing is the ideal way to visit the attractions of the city. This attractive accommodation offers comfortable rooms and a selection of contemporary amenities.

Located in the district of Haidan, Taipingyang Underwater World features many hundreds of different kinds of fishes and other marine creatures. This intriguing attraction has many features of interest, and perhaps the most impressive is the large tunnel, extending no less than 80 m which presents a captivating spectacle to the visitor. This tunnel is made even more attractive by the mechanized walkway which takes visitors along the extent of the tunnel. You will feel that you are standing on the bottom of the seabed, surrounded by colourful coral reef structures and shoals of swimming fish.

On the other hand in the smaller pond section you will see valuable tropical fishes native to the tropics. In the designated touching zone visitors will be able to pet resident sharks if they choose to do so. Meanwhile in the special Penguin House you will be able to see endearing Humboldt Penguins which were brought over from Peru. These creatures are considered to be endangered, but with the proper environment and care their numbers are steadily increasing.

Not to be missed is the acclaimed performance area, where you will see lovable seals performing feats like playing with rings and balls, and kissing their trainer. Guests will also have the opportunity to watch staff feeding the hungry sharks. Other attractions at Taipingyang Underwater World include a computer centre, Western style restaurant and a special movie theatre.
