Those who love marine life might want to take a trip to Singapore. It's now home to the world's largest aquarium.

The huge aquarium called the S.E.A. aquarium, opened on the resort island of Sentosa in November, according to ABC. It is now part of Resorts World Sentosa.

It is home to over 100,000 marine animals from over 800 species. The animals live in almost 12 million gallons of water in 10 different zones which contain 49 habitats.

Several of the habitats have themes and take visitors through different parts of the world like Southeast Asia and the Arabian Gulf, showcasing the animals that come from those regions.

The most impressive feature of the aquarium is the Open Ocean habitat in which visitors can look through the world's largest viewing panel which is 118 feet wide by 27 feet tall.

"S.E.A. Aquarium offers not only a stunning display of habitats, but also education and conservation programs in which families and guests can participate," S.E.A. Aquarium Senior Curator Grant Willis said in a news release. "Younger guests will be thrilled to know that we have specially-designed exhibits such as the Discovery Touch Pool, the Lens Aquarium and Floor Aquarium, to provide them up-close encounters with our marine residents."

Adult admission to the aquarium is about $24.

The resort where the aquarium is located also opened a waterpark called Adventure Cove. The adventure park includes six water slides, a water coaster, a wave pool and a lazy river. The resort also gives visitors the opportunity to interact with marine life.  Guests can go snorkeling with fish and swim with sting rays at the Rainbow Reef and more interactions, including those with dolphins and sharks are planned for next year.

Before S.E.A opened, the world's largest aquarium was Atlanta's Georgia Aquarium which opened in 2005. It contains more than 10 million gallons of water that house their creatures.
