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.

It was an ok experience, but way too expensive for what it has to offer. Not impressive and the entrance was around 25000w.

Many species. Not only under sea habitats. So very interesting, large main pool with big sharks and turtles. Worth it

Samseongdong / COEX
A large business hub, Samseongdong is anchored by
Korea’s World Trade Center, where many important
