Where: Singapore

Move over Georgia Aquarium, as it looks like there’s a new vat of water in town and this one now holds the title of world’s largest.

The S.E.A. Aquarium opened its doors and tanks for the first time last week, making Singapore is now home to the world’s largest aquarium. Obviously they have plenty of fish and friends, and they’re all doing their thing in almost 11.2 million gallons of water. The new place is home to around 800 different species of ocean critters, and in total there’s like 100,000 animals swimming and splashing about.

There’s 49 different habitats that mimic all kind of different areas within the region, and when you go to check it all out don’t miss the open ocean habitat. The viewing window here is going to be the world’s largest—of course—as the thing is a good 118 feet by 27 feet.

The place is all part of the Marine Life Park at Singapore's Resorts World Sentosa. In addition to the aquarium, oceanarium, fish tank, or whatever you want to call it there’s also a brand new waterpark as well. If you’re in the area and want to check out the fishies it’ll set you back roughly $24—enjoy.
