A Busy Day at an Aquarium

This COEX Aquarium is located inside a huge Seoul shopping mall. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but there is quite a few interesting exhibits in there I have never seen before. I will show these in subsequent posts.

I happened to visit during a weekday along with a ton of school children.

This is the same koi pond exhibit as the above picture after the kids have walked by.

Many aquariums have this type of walkway where the fishes and other sea creatures in a huge tank are swimming all around you. You can stand still to watch or get on the moving walkway as indicated by the arrows in the photo.

This was the meeting place for all the school kids. It was quite noisy in there as you might have imagined.

I loved watching these little chipmunks perform, but never expected them to be displayed at an aquarium.

Thanks Sue, Glad you're enjoying the tour. And thanks for the wording. "Water Tunnel" is exactly what it is!

Aquariums are fun, and this one looks to be of the really splendid kind. We have our own, but it cannot match this at all.

And it contains salt water ;-)

The walkway looks amazing! We visited an aquarium in Tenn but it wasn't very impressive to me. This one looks really interesting.
