After five years of planning, the “Xpark Aquarium,” which occupies an area of approximately 14,876 square meters, is slated to open on Aug. 7, authorities said.
Located in the plaza near the Taiwan High Speed Rail (THSR) Taoyuan Station, the Xpark Aquarium is the first overseas branch of the Yokohama Hakkeijima Sea Paradise in Japan.
Different from the typical “aquarium,” the Xpark combines dazzling visual digital technology to create a metropolitan aquarium that is unlike any other tourist-type aquatic museum in Taiwan.
The park is divided into four exhibition areas, including “Formosa,” “Diving in Coral Sea,” “Rainforest Adventure,” and “Healing Jellyfish.”
With oceans surrounding Taiwan, “Formosa” features a four-story-high window where tourists can look closely at thousands of fishes.
“Diving in Coral Sea” also features a 180-degree panoramic screen, displaying the dreamy underwater scenes with countless of fishes and colorful coral reefs.
The exhibition allows you to feel the dreamy atmosphere surrounded by the sea and get a glimpse of the mysterious underwater world.
