Lots of things to see. Nicely decorated. Big and spacious. My kids (8 and 2 years old) enjoyed a lot. There are also some interactive exhibits that you can touch the sea creatures.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Coex Aquarium - the first aquarium I have ever seen inside of a shopping mall. It was a bit overpriced, even with the tourist discount we got thanks to a travel brochure we picked up at the airport....More

We have visited many aquariums around the world and to be honest we found this one quite bizarre - plastic toys and cartoon characters in the fish tanks, video game machines next to the displays, the mermaid/clown fish show, rabbits and prairie dogs, vending machines...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
