  • Compared to the Sea library in Osaka, Japan, or the Taiwan screen, really small aquarium, the line I think is not very good, in order to see the feed show and go back, and are standing, it is easy to be blocked, about 1 hours after the end of the stroll

  • You can buy at a discount and travel agency in advance to buy tickets for. From nanpu 1003 bus, get off at Haeundae Beach and walk away, but walk from Busan Station, about 10 minutes. The name of the fish was Japan language representation.

  • This aquarium is very nice with loads of animation including an interactive ocean shoreline where you can walk into the water that isn't really there, as well as touch screens where the computerized fish on the screen will bite your fingers, glass walkways over the aquarium floor and shark and penguin feedings. They also have glass bottom boats that you can ride in for an additional fee. Worth a visit and doesn't take a lot of time to go through.

  • 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.
