  • This aquarium is amazing. Very large with so many different sea animals. Most animal facts they post up have English versions as well, in case you can't understand Korean. Some animals have different feeding schedules so make sure to go early or ask at the information desk.
  • 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.
  • This feedback is no reflection on the amazing creatures of the sea that adorn this underground aquarium. There are better facilities across the planet that do a better job at the up keep of the aquarium and the life in those tanks
  • Nice variety of fish and info, but overpriced and crowded even early in the day. Gift shop is dissapointing as well
  • 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.

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.
