    A good article about the under-construction Jakarta Aquarium and direction of its parent company, Taman Safari Indonesia. The aquarium will occupy 7,000 square metres in the basement of a mall in Podomoro City. It will be the second aquarium in Jakarta, a city with 10 million residents and 30 million annual domestic tourists.

    Note: although the article says SeaWorld Indonesia shut down, it reopened in 2015.

    I like the Penguin Restaurant-the penguin exhibit looks fabulous.

    it would be cool if other zoos had animals in their gift shops and restaurants.

    There are a series of photos on this blogpost from March by Thibault Paquin (some of the same photos are also in the link by @Giant Panda above): PICTURES: Jakarta Aquarium Opens

    His blog archives contain reviews and photos of various other Asian attractions too, including Taping Zoo, VinPearl Safari, etc.
