We really enjoyed our trip to SEA Aquarium, South East Asia’s second largest Aquarium (now eclipsed by a Chinese aquarium apparently). We probably spent about 3 hours in total at the aquarium, with a lot of time at the open Ocean exhibit just relaxing. The Open Ocean exhibit is 36 metres long and 8 metres high, and was filled with large fish and sharks of numerous species. The music playing in the Open Ocean exhibit sounded like the famous Nutcracker symphony, and was very appropriate for the general mood of the place- you are literally in an underwater world.

I have seen exhibitions of poison arrow frogs before, but I have only seen yellow and black coloured frogs. These frogs were also in different colours. This exhibit was very crowded, as I think a lot of people had not seen these animals before.

Singapore SEA Aquarium Alligator Gar Fish
These were amazing fish I have never seen before. They are called a Platinum Alligator Gar and they are living fossil, having been around since the time of the Dinosaurs. I struggled to get a better photo of  them. They are quite unusual.

We bought our tickets from Klook (which gives you a discount). You do need to specify dates though but the SEA Aquarium is great for all weather type days as its all under cover and airconditioned. I just bought the tickets online the night before and showed the ticket counter my mobile phone receipt (no need for printing out). 

It is an easy trip from central Singapore to the SEA Aquarium. We would walk the boardwalk over from Vivo City to Resorts World Sentosa Island. The boardwalk is free. You can also catch the monorail from Vivo City, but it does cost money and was very crowded (i.e not that pleasant). The boardwalk is much more scenic and peaceful.

We didn't eat inside SEA Aquarium, but just outside at Malaysian Food Street. The Roti bread was huge and very cheap. Cheap Chicken kebabs etc too. Do recommend.
