The Busan Aquarium contains over 35,000 species of fish, algae, reptiles, and amphibians. This state-of-the-art facility is one of Korea’s top aquariums.
On the cultural trip, we also visited the aquarium- and though not so big, had exhibitions of all the essential sealife & I always get excited visiting aquariums. Especially the jellyfish section, it is quite exquisite!
This aquarium is build more for the local parents to bring their children to learn about the different sea creatures, not to attract tourist(It is listed as a tourist location, but not the “must-visit” spot). Somehow, it also became a hot dating place, lots of couple were there, holding hands walking around, yet I was there with my junior…
Our favorite exhibit was the jellyfish room, with a huge collection of them held in colorfully-lit tanks. I’d never heard of the Upside-Down Jellyfish, before. Other favorites included the giant octopus, the sea horses and a section called “Dangerous Fish of the Ocean”.
