So it's winter, which doesn't involve a lot of warm outside activities, but I really wanted to see an Aquarium. I asked one of my friends, who has lived here for over three years now, and she mentioned a fairly new Aquarium: Aqua Planet.
Aqua Planet is in Ilsan, right next to the famous Singing Fountain, featured in many Korean Dramas, and it's about a 10 to 15 minute walk from Juyeop Station on Line 3 of the Seoul Subway.
It's a fairly big aquarium with two main exhibits, the ocean and the amazon.
Their mascot is a Walrus, because they have a Walrus!
They also had Penguins, Seals and Seas Lions!
Aside from salt water animals, they also had fresh water animals like Beavers:
And River Otters :)
We went there around feeding time, so the animals were up and about, waiting for their food.
We even saw the giant tank fish getting fed, which was quite a show! Two of the Manta rays kept hovering over the diver's head while he fed the smaller fish, and people were crowding the windows to watch the show. I waved to one of the divers who saw my camera and struck a pose ^_^
And they had an octopus!
There were so many other cool Ocean tanks:
I was amused by the upside down Jelly Tank:
But my favorite part of this Aquarium was the Amazon exhibit:
They had Lemurs!
It was a nice and clean building, and the workers were very nice. There's also a few fun activities for kids to do, like the starfish pool, and the Doctor fish ^_^
