This year, we’ve spent our summer holiday in Istanbul. My family has just bought an apartment there and we decided to use it and abuse it 🙂
On the first day of our arrival, we wanted to go somewhere but not that far because we were kind of tired. So we agreed to go to Aqua Florya Mall, visit their huge aquarium and enjoy our time there. The mall is just next to the airport, so when you sit there and have lunch or coffee, you’ll see plane after plane landing. Beautiful view.
Let’s talk about the aquarium. It’s huge, better than the one we have in Kuwait of course. So easy to go around and explore the things they have for the visitors. website
I loved that it’s divided to sections, and each section has its own decoration. Like one time you’re in the Ataractic and then you’re inside a cave. Just beautiful.
The prices of the tickets are around KD 4 (42 TL) which is decent. Also you can find a cafe and small kiosks selling food or goodies. You can take pictures with statues or just sit next to the huge pool and watch the fish swim around. They have so many sharks there going above your head
The place is worth the visit.
