The fun is in the inner areas. Navigate to see crabs and otters inside. They're amazingly huge and colourful.

The visit to the COEX Aquarium in this Seoul tour has become a very good gift for me. I didn't think of any variety of marine life in Korea, and the various sea kingdoms I experienced in Korea became unforgettable memories.

Don't get me wrong - if you have kids, it's a great interactive activity. As adults, having seen other aquariums, this is average. The exhibits are catering for children, so instead of trying to replicate natural habitats in the tanks, a lot have childish toys...More

The aquarium is pretty good with an assortment of displays and some unique creatures. It’s not unlike other good and modern aquariums around the world. It is a great change of pace from temples and palaces if you want to get out of the heat...More

Samseongdong / COEX
A large business hub, Samseongdong is anchored by
Korea’s World Trade Center, where many important
business exhibitions and meetings are held. The
enormous COEX mall sprawls underground, providing a
myriad of things to do and see, including a large
aquarium and movie theater. For a bit of peace and
zen, head over to the ornate Bongeunsa Temple which is
one of Korea’s most important places of worship. Or
