COEX Mall, Samseong

COEX mall is at Samseong and you will have to change a couple of lines (based on subway map) to reach there. I remember we changed three lines. Be sure to keep atleast 6 hours to cover the mall, as the mall is super huge and covering all of them is insanely impossible in 6 hours. COEX Mall is an integrated shopping, culture, education, and leisure complex in the heart of Seoul. The mall houses multiple duty free stores and the regular ones. It is one of the major attractions near Seoul city. It is not hard to spot this mall as Subway line 2, Samseong Station, exits 5 & 6, lead the way to COEX Mall. Going by the design and spaciousness the mall is truly world class.

The major attraction apart from the multitude of shopping outlets, theatres, is the multi floor aquarium. Although the ticket is placed at higher side (17500 Won), the aquarium is worth a visit. One can expect to see the rare types of sharks, dugong, giant crabs, jelly fish and many more. There is even a fish tank where you can place your hand and tiny doctor fish are going to nibble the dead skin away, which is quite tickling. Overall a worthwhile visit if you cover the aquarium too.
