It is surprisingly large given that it is situated inside the COEX, an expensive place in the heart of the city. I had visited numerous large aquariums but still managed to find something interesting. There was a locker facility (at a small charge) and that...More

We didn’t expect much as it was a last minute decision to visit. It was a weekday so the crowd was few and far in between. The variety of animal was a surprise. Although it was meant to be an aquarium but we also got...More

looks like the concept has been brought without giving adequate thoughts to make it stand out compared to its peers. Very expensive to the boot

This aquarium has the greatest variety of fish I´ve ever seen! It even has penguins! I really liked the theme each room had and you can even touch some of the creatures there, like the starfish. Great for family trips!

The aquarium is tucked away in the mall, but easy enough to find with adequate signs pointing the way. It was a bit underwhelming but large enough to keep you entertained for a couple of hours.

myriad of things to do and see, including a large

zen, head over to the ornate Bongeunsa Temple which is
one of Korea’s most important places of worship. Or
