KOREA: COEX Aquarium (코엑스 아쿠아리움)

Dear readers welcome back.

I apologize for being AFK, but I have a very good reason for it. My life was changed a lot and a lot of happened. On 24th of July, I came to South Korea. But right after arrival, I've been got sick. Yes, I still cough like an old man. I visited a doctor in Seoul and after 2 weeks still sick. :( 

I really wanted to visit an Aquarium in South Korea after watching The Legend of the Blue Sea, South Korean drama series. There was a scene with the Aquarium and fell in love with an idea of having a date in the aquarium! Unfortunately, the aquarium from the drama was far away from Seoul and I can't really travel far sick like this. There are more Aquariums in Seoul. I was near Aquarium in The Lotte World Mall, but they didn't have as many kinds of fishes as in Coex. So Coex won for its location.


Coex shopping mall is located in Gangnam-Gu, Seoul, South Korea. Probably the best way to get there is with a subway line 2 (Samseong station), which is kind of main subway line. You have to walk a lot in the shopping center, don't give up, at the end of it, you can find the Aquarium. (Ha!!)

Full address: 513, Yeongdong-daero, Gangnam-gu, Seoul
서울특별시 강남구 영동대로 513 (삼성동)


I was excited. However, I don't really agree with ZOOs, so I had mixed feelings. 

Aquarium has a one-way route and goes like following:

1. Check-in

You can see a few aquarium even before the enterng aquarium. 

2. Rainbow Lounge
(including Nemo characters :D)

3. Story of Korean Fish
This section had fishes from all around Korea.

4. Garden of Korea
This section has all kinds of Korean water plants.

5. Fish in Wonderland
Personally, I had a problem with one aquarium, where fishes were put into circle  aquariums. Every 20 seconds light turned on for about 5 seconds. It looked like a trafic light. And in the each tank there was only one fish. They all looked blind. :((

6. Amazonia World
This was a very interesting part. Exhibition was including more kinds of animals.

7. Marine Touch LAB

8. Mangrove and Beach

9. Living Reef Gallery

10. Ocean Kingdom

11. Marine Mammal Village

12. Deep blue Square
This was more like a theather! Resting zone.

13. Deep Sea Tunnel
The best part!

14. Garden of Jelly fish

15. Penguin's Playground

16. The Gift Shop

I decided to write a travel post as this was a very important day for me. After Aquarium, I and my boyfriend got engaged! ♥  I hope you like my post and I hope it brings you some happiness or some inspiration for traveling! Let's say this is kind of summary, I need to tell you, that it will be full of children, but if you don't mind, it will be completely fine! You should bring some extra money to the gift shop and also you should have enough time in advance as you can spend hours here!

See you soon :))
