    The entire aquarium in the basement next to the Busan beach. While carefully look at it takes half a day. Sorry do not know it is just a description to Korea because there are many. Shark Bait do enjoy it because there are a lot of shows and other shows.

    Everyone told me this is a 'must see', but I found it a bit disappointing. It feels more like a noisy theme park experience. I don't understand why you need loud music to accompany observing fish and ...  more »

    We visited Busan Aquarium Sunday morning came before 10 a.m., visitors were few, calmly looked at all without waiting in line took part in numerous interactive games. In the lobby of the hotel took out discount coupons in the 10000 won, but it turned out only one coupon, we at each of the four man made made this discount. Total ticket came out with taking into account discounts on 19000 won per person, including children-adolescents older than 12 years. Weekday promo ticket would cost Vaughn 12000. Then the children bought 7000 won on each trip to the boat, but they're not very impressed: twenty minutes was in Korean, they have English only asked how many shark teeth, plus the bottom of boats clear but unclear, not clearly visible, as they say, put a tick. For inspection spent about an hour and a half, the Aquarium is small. If you're with kids, then go here worth a lot for them was accompanying computer effects, enjoy.

    I enjoyed this aquarium. There was a wide variety of sea life here. They provide a schedule of events happening throughout the day. If you miss one, there's usually another time. I went in the afternoon and due to time constraint, I was only able to see one event. I would recommend going in the morning and planning for at least half a day to be able to see most of the events. There's one event they don't do on Mondays. A bit pricey, so if you have a coupon, bring it! Overall, I enjoyed this place and would recommend it.

    Nice little visit. Not huge but interesting. I can see why the price seem a little high at 29000 won per person, but if you think about the rescue services they do and raising awareness about marine life, it don't seem too much? (At least I think that) One of better English translation around, and it was nice to see feeding time for some of the animals. As place I small, you are likely to see one or 2 feeding at best. Overall worth a visit.

    Good aquarium with lots to see. Very good for children. Check it out if you're in the Busan area.

    Nice place, especially the feeding of the sharks..however they haven't been hungry and so it was quite funny to see how they tried to feed them :)

    It's a great place to spend a few hours with the kids to allow them to explore the fish and sea life.

Where to stay in Busan

Established as a domestic tourist destination for a long while now, you'll find a good set of accommodations in Busan, a city becoming more and more equipped to cope with its burgeoning international reputation. Around Seomyeon station and slightly further to the northeast lie some of the most established options, with an abundance of hotels, hostels, and guesthouses in this highly commercial district. Head to the Haeundae beach district for a range of beachfront options, and more budget-friendly guesthouses in the side streets that lead away from the beach.
