i'm not a big fan of fishes honestly. and all aquariums sort of look the same to me. but it's ok, i'm just going since it's supposed to be yet another one of the biggest aquariums in korea. (or the biggest in jeju. or maybe it's the only aquarium in jeju, i don't know)/
this place is located at seopji-koji, a little area with lots of touristy spots and with a scenic view. it's also where some dramas were filmed at (i.e. all in).
there wasn't a lot of people in the morning (about 10-11am) so we settled down and had breakfast there at their food court. not fantastic but not too bad either. just a little pricey (8k - 10k for each set).
here's a view outside from the food court
ta-dah some eye trick photo zone. they seem to have these in a lot of places now.
and fishy spams
you can duck into a little corner to view the penguins up close. we were lucky cos one of them stood there for a long time. heh.
penguin hostel! all of them have their own homes and names. so cute.
some weird looking frogs and newts and whatnots.
now this is interesting. they sort of fossilized the bodies in a different way and made them colorful. it's sort of cruel but beautiful at the same time...
and we enter some foresty areas... the pic on the right shows some tunnel structure with little otters or whatever they are running to and fro,.
this crab has a missing pincer. ouch. and on the right is a weird overturned crab there.
some tanks were decorated with christmas ornaments. kawawiii
we took a little break at auntie annies before heading off to watch some performances
some more fishes before the performance starts...
do you see the little straight things sticking out? those are fishes btw.
this seahorse appeared in HK aquarium, SG aquarium and now here.
delicious japanese spider crabs.
there's so many goldfishes inside you can't really see an actual proper fish.
and first performance of the day... is a quirky mix of synchronised swimming, fire acrobatics, weird humor and lots of plunging in the pool.
this guy was diving down from the highest level! the second was lots of dolphin splashes~
dolphin climbed up the platform on the left corner
more dolphin jumping
