That Day I Went to the Aquarium

Hello, people of the world, how have you been doing? 🙂
Yes, I know… I haven’t updated in a long long time, but I wasn’t really in the blog mood, so that is why I have been absent for a while…

In this post I want to share my experience with the Beijing Aquarium/Zoo.

So… it was a pretty spontaneous decision to go there, you can get there very easy, just make sure you go on a nice, warm (or at least not windy) day. I got a combination ticket which is the Beijing Aquarium + the Zoo. The ticket was 75 yuan in total – 70 yuan for the aquarium and 5 yuan for the zoo.

I suggest you go there around 11-12 o’clock, that way you can enjoy the beluga and the seal shows (yes, they are throughout the whole day, but I feel like going around noon is a good idea (because not so many people)).

This is what you see when you enter the aquarium. It starts like a jungle, there’s nice music playing and the atmosphere is really good.

Then we start seeing some sharks:

Surprisingly there weren’t many people that day, so it was pretty enjoyable.

Beware, lot’s of jellyfish photos! If you don’t like jellyfish (like my mom <3 ) you should just scroll down to the bottom:

And then there is the zoo. Since it was so windy and cold that day I didn’t really want to stay out, so after the aquarium I took a quick look of some of the animals in the zoo and left. My impression on the animals out was that they are not really being taken good care of, most of the cages were too dirty and they looked like they haven’t been cleaned in a long time.

I will definitely come back here on a nice and warm day to see the animals, they have pandas, elephants, big cats and it’s in a nice park so it’d be enjoyable.

I hope you enjoyed! Until next time! 🙂
