The last field trip I chaperoned was to the Lotte World Aquarium. It was my first time visiting an aquarium in South Korea. I was just as or more excited than the students. Unlike other field trips that only have attractions for kids, a museum is enjoyable for people of all ages.
As the name suggests, this museum is located at the same location as the Lotte World Adventures amusement park. Thus, it is in Jamsil Songpa, Seoul.
