The Georgia Aquarium

Right next to The World of Coca-Cola was the Georgia Aquarium. It may not be be famous in Malaysia, but this is the World's largest aquarium and it was huge. But unfortunately, I was on a tight schedule that afternoon and was only able to sample through the displays but none of the shows. I manages to explore the place within an hour and a half. There was plenty to see, but unfortunately not enough time.

The main tank actually housed four sharks amongst other first. There were also a separate tank for the beluga whales, another area for penguins as well as a another display for tropical fish. That seemed to be where most of the crowds were. Mind you, there can't be that many tropical fish laying around here.

This was also where the information desks were and meeting points form groups. As you could imagine, it was rather crowded in the middle there.

I spent most of the time as the fresh water exhibits. They had a tank of piranha there as well as the usual otters and other fishes and frogs.

Since both the World of Coca-Cola and then aquarium were located in the middle of downtown, there were easily accessible. The City Council also had this Day Pass where one could save on the entrance fees by purchasing a combined ticket. This included tour of the CNN Towers and the Atlanta Zoo. Unfortunately I only managed to visit the two attractions. It was more of working trip, and the cold weather and short days just made exploring the city at that time of the year that bit more challenging.

Still, if you ever ended up in Atlanta, it would definitely be worth a visit. More on my Atlanta trip here.
