Lotte World Aquarium Hanoi transcends traditional observation, offering a realm of interactive experiences that craft lasting memories. Activities such as interactive touch pools and captivating feeding shows within the main tank have been meticulously crafted to evoke a spectrum of emotions, particularly among young visitors. These experiences embody the profound joy that arises when humanity embraces the magnificence of nature while actively promoting awareness and understanding of our delicate marine ecosystems.

 A striking facet of Lotte World Aquarium Hanoi is its unique architectural inspiration drawn from Cá Ông (Ocean God), the revered guardian deity of seafarers. Guided by Cá Ông, a 650-meter journey unveils a narrative steeped in folklore, leading visitors through four thematic zones: Fresh Town, Beach Walk, Sea Adventure, and Ocean Square. Within the walls of the aquarium, the concept of Vietnamese culture comes alive, weaving together time-honored traditions with modern innovation. This symbiotic relationship finds its canvas within Lotte World Aquarium Hanoi, a sanctuary where marine life thrives, and humans bear the responsibility of nurturing this delicate balance.

In a concerted effort to collectively safeguard the indigenous marine ecosystem, Lotte World Aquarium Hanoi strives to be more than just a tourist and entertainment spot.
