A Short Trip to S.E.A. Aquarium Sentosa, Singapore

If you love marine animals, you’ll definitely enjoy the tour in this HUGE aquarium. S.E.A. Aquarium is open whole week, Sunday to Saturday, from 10 am to 7 pm.

Here’s another photo blog. It’s my short trip to S.E.A. Aquarium in Sentosa, Singapore. I don’t have much photos because the place is dark to take photos and using flash is not allowed. But I hope you’ll enjoy and get interested somehow. 🙂

There are a lot of marine animals found at S.E.A. Aquarium like sharks, jelly fish, crabs, octopus, and a lot more! Here’s a map I got from their website which may help you:
