The Largest, Most Incredible Aquariums on the Planet

A trip to an aquarium can be one of the most memorable experiences in any trip to another city, especially if you’re visiting somewhere known for its marine life, like Seattle, Washington or Hawaii. But which aquariums are the absolute best? For that matter, which ones are the biggest? There are many things to consider when ranking the biggest and best aquariums on the planet, including how many specimens it houses at once, how large it is in physical size, how large its ecosystem is and whether or not it’s cutting edge in technology or design.

Asia is also home to the second-largest aquarium, which houses 10,000 marine animals from over 800 species. It is a component of Resort World Sentosa, which is located in Singapore. The idea for the Marine Life Park came when one of the company’s employees brought back some starfish from Indonesia and shared it with his co-workers. The group became enthralled with the animal and wanted to share it with everyone else. After much discussion, they decided that an aquarium would be perfect for showcasing these creatures. They spent two years designing and building this facility, which opened its doors to visitors in 1998 and has been an immense success ever since!
