The entrance of Jakarta Aquarium - Neo Soho
Hi guys, how are you?? Well, I hope you're doing great, cause I am too :)
Well, lately I'm feeling that I wrote too much on my blog about beauty, and it's kinda not fair cause this blog should be also posts about food and travel. So for the next few weeks, I'll write about other content such as restaurant reviews, and also travel report (includes the itinerary) for winter holiday in Hokkaido. But before that, I'll write about our experience when visiting the first aquarium in Jakarta, which located inside the shopping mall.

Jakarta Aquarium is a new destination for family in Jakarta. It was opened at 2017, by cooperation between Taman Safari Indonesia and Aquaria KLCC, Malaysia. When they're just opened, Aurelia asked me to go there because they also have penguin which is her favorite animals. However at that time Winston still too young and we decided it to postpone it, until he ready and understand about animals. Last months, we were visiting Jakarta Aquarium for the first time. At that moment Winston already understand about animal, especially fishes! He loves fishes and know it so well from the popular Youtube Videos : Baby Shark by PinkFong. Looking at his excitement and Aurelia's desire, we visited Jakarta Aquarium at the weekday to avoid the crowd.

Ticket's price to Jakarta Aquarium
Jakarta Aquarium located at Neo SOHO which connected with Central Park Mall. It was the first time for us to go to Neo SOHO as well, but the direction to the aquarium was very clear, so we could find it easily. There are 2 types of ticket : Premium and Regular. The difference is with Premium ticket, you can watch "SEA PERFORMANCE" at 5D theatre, where you can feels like under the sea, surrounded by beautiful corals and fishes. The Premium Ticket only can be bought on the spot, while the Regular one also can be bought by online here.

SEA Performance at 5D theatre - Jakarta Aquarium

This aquarium filled with many species of fishes and other sea creatures. But not just that, you also can see other animals that live on land such as reptiles, otter, and many more. Even though the place is quite small, but it was clean and the ambience also perfect for young kids (read : toddler) as their first experience.

If you want to see the penguins closely, you need to go to PINGOO restaurant which also the part of Jakarta Aquarium. You can get a discount at this restaurant which comes with the entrance ticket of Jakarta Aquarium (you can ask at their staff when buy the ticket for this package). However, we have other plan for lunch so we didn't go to that restaurant.
