Sea World, Xiamen's largest complex, is expected to seal the roof of its main structure in September, according to its founder Xiamen Port Holding Group on March 13.
Initiated in September 2016, the Sea World now enters a phase of concentrated construction and most of its projects are set to be finished this year.
Among them, there is a 33,000 square meter oceanarium, a 60 meter high sky wheel, an indoor ski field with a snow-covered 120 meter track, and a film culture and art center.
