This com­ing hol­i­day, par­ents can take their kids to the Jakarta Aquar­ium lo­cated at Neo SOHO Mall for a fun and ed­u­ca­tional af­ter­noon ex­cur­sion. The aquar­ium, de­vel­oped by Ta­man Sa­fari In­done­sia, fea­tures all the rich and di­verse marine life that the ar­chi­pel­ago has to of­fer. Launched in Jan­uary this year, the lim­ited tick­ets to the early pre­view were a prized com­mod­ity.

The up­per floor of the aquar­ium takes vis­i­tors on a jour­ney through the var­i­ous flora and fauna on the nu­mer­ous is­lands of In­done­sia and their im­pacts on the in­hab­i­tant's daily life and tra­di­tions.

The exhibit fea­tures rain­forests and man­groves, with na­tive species such as the world-fa­mous Ko­modo dragon, cheeky stingrays and play­ful ot­ters. A spe­cial fea­ture that kids will love is the her­mit crab log, in which they can ob­serve the shy crea­tures in their habi­tat with a mag­ni­fy­ing glass. Stairs lead down to the un­der­wa­ter dis­play of Jakarta Aquar­ium. Vis­i­tors look­ing for a place to rest can sink into the seats sur­round­ing the won­drous swirl tank. The lower floor of the Jakarta Aquar­ium delves into the deep sea riches of the Co­ral Tri­an­gle. Kids can marvel at bam­boo sharks, glow­ing jel­ly­fish, clown­fish and other beau­ti­ful marine in­hab­i­tants in the var­i­ous tanks. The aquar­ium's last sec­tion fea­tures the big­gest tank, which holds ex­otic crea­tures such as Napoleon Wrasse fish, sea tur­tles and sharks.
