Our first stop was Busan Aquarium. I can’t wait to see their aquarium because I want to compare the one in Singapore. I was surprised that Busan Aquarium is bigger than in Singapore. They have more different under water species.
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. The aquarium covers an area of 36,000 m2 and is spread over 3 underground levels and features an outdoor park. On the first underground level is a souvenir shop and several places to eat, while the B2 and B3 levels showcase the various exhibits. The third underground level boasts an 80m main (seabed) tunnel.
The tunnel experience resembles a walk along the ocean floor with various sea creatures swimming above. This is a very popular area of the aquarium and is sure to amaze visitors. The simulator also stimulates the imagination and provides a unique feeling of life on the ocean floor.

I really enjoyed here at Busan Aquarium. During that day, they were so many students that time I think they are having their educational field trip and they were so cute.
I would suggest to visit the Busan Aquarium because you will enjoy a lot especially children and you will see different kinds of under water species. My pictures are proof that they are one of a kind.
