[Jeju Online Supporters] A Survey of Jeju’s Tourist Attraction Part 2 – Aqua Planet, Jeju

An important note on Jeju’s updated bus system and this blog post

From August 2017, Jeju Island implemented a new city and intercity bus system. It increased the number of buses in service, while simplifying the routes, fees and numbering system.

Consequently, the contents of this previously published blog post may have changed. We therefore would kindly request that you consult this page for new bus maps in English on VisitJeju.net,  and this page on our blog for a chart of the old and new bus route numbers.

If you read Korean, then the province’s official bus system website is a useful and up-to-date resource. We hope you’ll enjoy your travels on Jeju Island!

Jeju is a large island located south of the Korean peninsula.
 Recently, the Aqua Planet aquarium was established there,
and so the Jeju Tourism Organization provided an overview of the Aqua Planet.

▲ The Supporters (Aqua Planet)
A group of more than 20 people qualifies for a group rate,
and children under 48 months enter free of charge.
Aqua Planet comprises of Kid’s Planet and Marine Science, where you can experience oceanography,
aquariums, and Ocean Arena, where you can attend performances.
Unfortunately, we were only able to survey the Ocean Arena and aquariums,
but a more detailed review of Aqua Planet will follow.
▲ Group Admission Ticket
▲ A Performance at the Ocean Arena
The Ocean Arena is on the 1st floor of Aqua Planet, and usually hosts ecological presentations and performances. There are four performances every two hours from 11 am to 5 pm. Each performance lasts for about 30 mins, and an aquarist explains the behavior and characteristic of sea lions, elephant seals, dolphins, and etc. The response from families with children was especially significant.
▲ The Aquarium
▲ Fish Bowl, The Giant Aquarium
Each aquarium is designated a theme, which allows for different thematic courses to choose from.
 In the Giant Aquarium (Fish Bowl) is our famous whale shark (Rhincodon typus).
▲ Whale Shark
▲ Amenities
The Aqua Planet is divided into two stories: for convenience, there are restaurants and cafes that provide to meals and refreshments. Perhaps being newly opened or the weekend, the place bustled with visitors. If time avails you on your Jeju visit, be sure to pay us a visit.
