REASONS TO VISIT VINKE & VINPEARL AQUARIUM
A space dedicated to career guidance for children
This is a “learning-through-play” environment for children to explore their dream jobs for themselves. VinKE offers children an opportunity to directly experience different careers, learn and acquire knowledge about their favourite fields, and become more confident and sociable in communication.
An aquarium of records
Not only one of the first aquariums in Hanoi, but Vinpearl Aquarium Times City is also the holder of many records in Vietnam.
A massive indoor play area
VinKE guarantees a quality time for children to learn through play with more than 200 arcade machines and various fun games within a large indoor play area.
Have you ever wondered how happy the colourful sea creatures will be at feeding time? Discover the answer for yourself at Vinpearl Aquarium Times City in the Fish Feeding Show. Don't forget the show schedule!
Freshwater Fish Area: The starting point of an exciting journey through the tropical forest, home to fish species native to the Amazon or Mekong Rivers, such as Arapaima gigas, Giant barb, and Spotted gar.
Freshwater Fish Area
Prepare to witness freshwater stingrays at Vinpearl Aquarium, as stingrays live not only under the oceans but also in streams and rivers. These colorful creatures will indeed trigger children's curiosity.
Vinpearl Aquarium Times City promises to surprise you with an interesting encounter with a representative from the Mekong Delta, the giant barb. Despite being a member of the carp family, the giant bard sets itself apart with its massive size and superb swimming ability. Fun fact: as intimidating as they may seem, these large animals prefer cohabitational living.
Coming to the Freshwater Fish Area, don't forget to visit the Koi fish - a symbol of Japan. Each fish has its own skin color patterns, including white-black, red-black-white, red-white, and red-yellow. Watching these majestic creatures gliding underwater is undoubtedly a unique experience that can hardly be found anywhere else.
Dragonfish (Asian Arowana)
Going through the arapaima area, you will stumble upon the world's most expensive fish, the dragonfish. The name originated from how its body meanders while swimming, just like a dragon in Asian legends.
Originated in the Amazon wetland, the arapaima can grow up to 2 meters in length and will surely leave visitors in awe after setting foot into Vinpearl Aquarium Times City.
What could be more genuine than watching different fish species such as giant groupers and sharks dancing overhead in a 90m-long transparent barrel vault in the ocean? It is a must to try!
Saltwater Fish Area
Aquarium Specimen Exhibition
Be ready to be struck by the beauty of more than 200 specimens of aquatic species from all over the world at this specimen exhibition area with the aid of striking 3D effects. Your knowledge of marine animals will be significantly enhanced through this fun experience. With magical lighting space and interesting behind-the-scenes footage, this place will definitely leave you with an unforgettable impression.
There are a vast collection of specimens on display, including corals, fish, snails, and penguins. All are derived from living organisms that have been treated with chemicals. This practical experience will enrich the visitors' knowledge in an engaging way, especially for children.
The giant grouper is the largest known bony fish found on reefs and is considered the symbol of Queensland, Australia. Only in Vinpearl Aquarium Times City will you have an opportunity to admire their beauty as they swim over your head.
Unlike the freshwater stingray, the sixgill stingray is a sea inhabitant with a flat body and extended belly. You will feel like you are watching a real-life ‘Finding Nemo’ movie when passing through the aquarium tunnel and surrounded by these lovely animals.

It is the home to a variety of unique and rare amphibians and insects such as water monitor lizard, green iguana, and emperor scorpion that can only usually be seen in books.
Chilean Rose Tarantula
As one of the world's largest spider species, the Chilean rose tarantula can live up to 10 years. It will surely amaze visitors at Vinpearl Aquarium Times City.
Despite its large size (up to 23 centimeters in length), the emperor scorpion is actually not very venomous. What are you waiting for if you wish to see the legendary ‘assassin’ animals from ancient Egyptian tales? Come here without delay!
Due to its massive size (one of the giant reptiles globally) and scary-looking, thorny skin, the green iguana may cause a curious yet anxious feeling for first-time visitors. However, as you get close to them, you will discover that they are actually very peaceful animals who feed on vegetables and fruits.
Vinpearl Aquarium Times City is proud to be the shelter for elongated tortoises - one of the most endangered tortoise species, a victim of uncontrolled hunting. Come along to visit and feed these peaceful animals by yourself.
Clouded Monitor (Varanus Nebulosus)
Vinpearl Aquarium Times City offers visitors an opportunity to admire the clouded monitor (Varanus nebulosus) - a rare species of monitor lizard listed in Vietnam's Red Data Book. It looks like a giant gecko or iguana. The clouded monitor has a long neck and tail, robust and well-growing limbs, and a triangular head pointed towards the snout. Despite its heavy body, it is an excellent tree climber, thanks to its strong nails.
