Inside the COEX Mall is an extensive corkscrew of an aquarium.
The price is a bit steep (well as Korean tourist sites go) at $17 an adult ticket, but worth checking out if you are in the country and need a change of pace from palaces.
According to the COEX Aquarium website, there are “3,000 tons of water, 40,000 different animals, and 650 different species.”
I believe it. This place is massive.
The usual aquarium staples are present but there is one quirky section that I haven’t seen before. In this section was various random items converted into fishtanks. A phone booth, sink, toilet, fridge, postbox are among the oddities.
The paths wind around, showing the visitors the aquarium’s residents. And not all of them are sea life.
The aquarium has a shark tank (that has a conveyor belt circling it), mantee, seal and more fish that I ever need to see.
The shark tank was meh, but something else made up for it….
Penguins! A dozen or more! It’s the most penguins I have seen in one area before.
And this unusual creature.
A two-headed turtle.
