7 best aquariums to visit in Asia
If you are an animal lover but are a little tired of visiting zoos and wildlife parks, taking a trip to an aquarium makes for a perfect alternative, especially since most aquariums these days are entirely air-conditioned.

 
Calming, quiet and softly lit in shades of blue, there is just something magical about stepping into an aquarium and moving from exhibition to exhibition to observe aquatic creatures meandering about and occasionally interacting with each other.
