Nice Aquarium

The place has a nice aquarium and jungle which l liked more. Other than that nothing really abnormal. 3 hrs is more than enough for this place.

Very weird place - you walk in and there is huge number of small selling/promoting carts/ stands/ offices... everything is very disorganized and confusing. Don`t see how it can be popular destination..

Duman used to have oceanarium (a huge bassin filled with exotic seacreatures), however, over the years exotic creatures were not managed well and the majority had died over years, including huge sharks that used to inhabit that pool.
