Spanning over 14,000 square metres and housing over 400 animal species, Xpark sets itself apart from others through its use of digital technology to create a unique and immersive experience. The aquarium will also recreate the temperatures, humidity, and even aromas to mimic different wildlife environments, making you feel like you're actually there.

There are four main zones where you can bask in the sight of stingrays, penguins, jellyfish, and many more marine creatures.
