An aquarium in China has been named the world’s largest by the Guinness World Records.

Located in Zhuhai, Guangdong province – about 15 minutes ride from Macau – it also broke four other records for having the largest underwater viewing dome, largest aquarium tank, largest aquarium window and largest acrylic panel.

Part of the theme park Chimelong Ocean Kingdom, the aquarium also features seven other areas, reflecting seven waterways and oceans around the world.

The theme park opened its doors in a soft launch in January this year, and the aquarium holds a total water volume of 49 million litres, which can fill about 19 Olympic-sized swimming pools.

The park was reportedly built for US$2 billion (S$2.5 billion), the Los Angeles Times reported.

Rowan Simons, president of Guinness World Records Greater China, said of the aquarium: “Breaking any world record is amazing, but to become the world’s largest aquarium requires phenomenal creative vision and immense engineering efforts.”

The Chimelong Ocean Kingdom surpasses the previous record-holder which was the SEA aquarium at Resort World Sentosa, Singapore. In 2012, it was named the largest aquarium in the world with 45 million litres of water, or the size of 18 Olympic-sized swimming pools.
