How to Get There
The COEX Mall is located along subway line 2, underneath the COEX Convention and Exhibition Centre and near the greater South Korean World Trade Center complex.

When to Get There
The COEX Aquarium is open year-round, with extended hours on Saturday and holidays. Because the aquarium is indoors and climate-controlled, it’s a good option for a hot summer afternoon or cold winter day. Plan to arrive early on a weekday to avoid crowds.
 
COEX Mall
Situated in the heart of Seoul’s Gangnam district, the COEX Mall underwent a large-scale renovation in 2014 to make it one of the largest shopping centers in Asia. Besides the aquarium, the mall is also home to SMTOWN and its hologram theater, a 17-screen cinema, and the Kimchi Museum.
