Nice aquarium located near Haeundae Beach. Has fantastic displays and walking over and next to the glass tanks with fish, dolphins, sea life, sharks etc was a highlight. Visited here with my partner in summer- July 2014.

This is a fun vacation spot! Lots of levels and things to see. I would skip out on the glass bottom boat ride though, not worth it and extremely hot

Our son is 5 and he loved spending the afternoon here. The place was a bit pricey but the number of animals they are taking care of makes it worth the cost. We will return.

I have been to SEA in SIngapore before, so felt nothing exciting here. Felt that they focus more on lighting. Kids may find it exciting.
