COEX Aquarium

Coex Aquarium

The COEX Aquarium in Gangnam District, Seoul, is the one of South Korea’s largest aquarium with over 40,000 creatures from over 650 species on display. The COEX Aquarium features 90 exhibition tanks grouped in fourteen “discovery zone”, including six themed areas. The aquarium is housed within the CEOX Mall, which is, itself, part of the larger CEOX Convention & Exhibition Center. The Aquarium opened in 2000.

The COEX Aquarium is arranged such that visitors follow a preset path through the aquarium, experiencing each of the themed areas in turn. Each exhibit features a dedicated aquarium tank where visitors can view species of fish indigenous to the theme location. In addition to fish, other local animals are included in the exhibit such as birds, otters, and polar bears, and appropriate vegetation is also included in each exhibit.

The theme areas, in order of presentation, are:

  • The Inca Empire
  • Amazonian World
  • Seven Seas
  • Ocean Kingdom
  • Marine Touch
  • Undersea Tunnel

In the undersea tunnel exhibit, visitors walk in an acrylic tunnel through a tank containing 2000 tons of water.The tank includes sharks and sea turtles which swim around visitors in all directions.

The COEX Aquarium in South Korea was so beautiful even though I never go there to see it directly. In here, we can make our own opinion about this place. Why? Because this aquarium is looks like in Seaworld in Ancol, Indonesia. But, maybe this is the largest one than in Indonesia. Does anyone of you like seeing waters creatures? If so, why you not go to South Korea to see them? If you have a lot of budget or money to go there, I’m sure, of course you can! Save your money from now. Even though you know, in Seaworld, Ancol, you can see those creatures too. Maybe this CEOX Aquarium can be as a tour list in your note. So, wanna go there to see those fishes?

Maybe this is only my explanation about this place. Sorry for all mistaken that have been made by me..
