While taking James’ parents around on a country-wide tour during our recent trip to Singapore, we paid a visit to the Marine Life Park S.E.A. Aquarium, located on Sentosa Island. Marketed as the world’s largest aquarium (as accredited by Guinness World Records), the attraction prides itself on giving visitors the chance to see more than 100,000 marine animals of over 800 species. I found the chambered nautiluses absolutely amazing, the unseeing jellyfish mystifying, the aptly-named guitarfish incredible. I love outlandish sea creatures. I could observe them for hours on end. Which is probably why the Open Ocean Habitat, which boasts the world’s largest viewing panel at 118 feet wide and 27 feet tall, takes the prize as my favourite exhibition. Imagine yourself standing on the ocean floor, co-existing with thousands of curious ocean-dwellers. That’s how I felt. For me, that huge viewing panel served as a window to another world.
