Lovely though a dip in the ocean is, it’s nice to experience sea life without the inconvenience of getting wet. At Oceanarium, the underwater journey takes you through a bamboo forest, where Oriental otters frolic amongst the rocky pools, and onto the rare green sea turtles and colourful clownfish, which seem unfazed by the curious sets of eyes gazing at them.

Beautiful though they are, everyone really wants to see the dangerous stuff. And Oceanarium doesn’t disappoint. As well as piranhas and venomous lionfish, you can experience the world’s first virtual Dive Cage. Imagine what it’s like to be surrounded by hoards of sharks before seeing them for real… behind the safety of a thick pane of glass of course.
