Located in Kenting, the National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium is open year-round, and is suitable for all ages. A 81-meter-long ocean tunnel located here allows one to view the diversity of living coral without the need to dive underwater. The aquarium displays Taiwan's abundant aquatic ecology, ranging from freshwaters to the Pacific Ocean. With windows ranging from 4 meters to 16 meters long, it reveals the grandness of the vast ocean. Using the latest technology, 3D virtual simulations are used to emulate the ancient ocean waters, with adults and children alike both fascinated and amazed by the many mysteries of the earth's oceans. The aquarium features over 10 kinds of ecological explanations, in addition to explanations at fixed times, international travelers are also provided with English-language guided tours and mobile phone services. The aquarium also offers an amazing experience: the chance to spend a night there! This activity is quite popular, and offers night tours and bedding. Just imagine sleeping in the aquarium, while being surrounded by the fish! In the morning, you'll even be awakened by the penguins. It's as if you're in a dream, swimming freely in the ocean!
