Busan Activities

Busan Aquarium

0

Like most touristic sea ports, Busan has an aquarium and this one is the largest in Korea. The aquarium attracts hordes of tourists all the year and is famous for its 3-D ride. Boasting more than 35,000 different kinds of fish and other marine creatures including varieties of algae, reptiles and amphibians, it is an imposing structure, spanning three floors and with an enormous outdoor garden. The second and third levels are display areas while the first level consists of recreational areas, restaurants and souvenir shops as well as a stimulator that promises a ‘rib-tickling’ experience. The lowest level is an underwater tunnel in which you can view the aquatic life all around as if one is walking along the ocean bed. This place is a must-visit for all nature enthusiasts.

Busan is known for its numerous hiking trails and the best part about hiking in Busan is that even if the trail is relatively isolated, safety is not a problem as crime rates here are relatively low.
