Sea Life Busan Aquarium, Busan Reviews

  • It's ok, I prefer this bigger ones in other countries. It's still a good place to visit. We went at night time. It was more dedicated to children than adults. But lots of couples go here too. Lots of fishes.

  • A bit expensive unless you get a voucher or catch a special... May be a little cramped for the crowds during holidays and special events... Staff are very friendly and helpful (some could speak English and some could not but all were helpful). Some nice interactive displays and a cute performance for the kids.

  • Great fish and wonderful atmosphere. The enclosures were a bit small, but there were a wide variety of interesting species

  • Cool place to hang out if u have time and few bucks. Don't expect sea world or anything.

  • 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.
