Share/Bookmark

The attraction, which took three years to build, is on Hengqin Island, near Macao, and features seven theme areas, each representing a part of the ocean, as well as rides, hotels, a 5D cinema and a circus. It cost a reported US$5 billion to build. It features the world’s biggest aquarium. It showcases what it claims is the world’s longest roller coaster. And it boasts a massive collection of whales, sharks and animals rarely, if ever, seen in captivity in China. A 1000-metre Grand Canal connects the hotel to the Ocean Kingdom, and guests can take water taxis which run in between. Owned by the Chime-Long Group, which runs China’s biggest theme park Chime-Long Paradise, in Guangzhou. Ocean Kingdom is about twice the size of Hong Kong’s Ocean Park and three times the size of the city’s Disneyland.

Share/Bookmark

The Victoria Falls lie in between Zambia and Zimbabwe in Southern Africa. The falls are part of two national parks, Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park in Zambia and Victoria Falls National Park in Zimbabwe. The waterfall is among the biggest, and most awe-inspiring, on the planet. The Zambezi River is more than 1.25 miles (2 kilometers) wide when it cascades over the lip of a large basalt plateau and plunges as much as 354 feet (108 meters). Its roar can be heard from 40 kilometers away, while the spray and mist from the falling water rises up to 400 meters and is visible from the distance of 50 kilometers.

San Alfonso Del Mar – The worlds Largest Swimming Pool in Chile

Share/Bookmark

The Guinness Book of Records has named the vast pool beside the sea in Chile as the biggest in the world. The pool is 1 km (0.62 mi) long, covering 8 ha (20 acres), containing some 250,000,000 litres of seawater, with a maximum depth of 35 m (115 ft). It uses water pumped, filtered, and treated from the Pacific Ocean. The pool was developed by Chilean company Crystal Lagoons, and opened in December 2006. While early estimates put the total cost of construction at about US$3.5 million for the filtration system alone, more recent estimates are in the area of US$1.5 billion to US$2 billion total for construction and almost US$4 million in annual maintenance. Chile\’s monster pool uses a computer-controlled suction and filtration system to keep fresh seawater in permanent circulation, drawing it in from the ocean at one end and pumping it out at the other. The sun warms the water to 26c, nine degrees warmer than the adjoining sea.
