Lotte World Aquarium

300 Olympic-ro, Jamsil 6(yuk)-dong, Songpa-gu, Seoul

The Basics

Explore the aquarium along a 2,756-foot-long (840-meter-long) route: start in the Korean river zone, continue through five different ocean zones, and end in the polar region zone. Don’t miss the beluga whales, a visitor favorite. And if you’re seeking additional insight into the underwater world, sign up for one of the aquarium’s educational and experiential programs.

For the best value, book a combo ticket that includes entry to Lotte World Aquarium and Lotte World Adventure theme park on the same day. Then, make the most of your time, and upgrade to the Magic Pass to skip the lines for top attractions at Lotte World Adventure.
