Seoul Day 3 – Lotte World

As I mentioned in day 2 post, we alternate ‘adult’ with ‘kid’ days. So Katrine had Gregor got to choose, within reason, the itineracy for the day. The original plan had been to go to Everland, a large theme park just outside of Seoul, but as the weather was cold, with wind chill bringing the feel-like temperature further down, we decided that this just wouldn’t work. So instead we went to Lotte World, which is an indoor theme park. Another advantage is it is within Seoul and easily reached on the Metro, rather than the Metro and bus we would have needed for Everland.

It was slightly strange being inside with roller-costers and flume rides but they managed  to pack a lot into a small space. There are a couple of rides that have an extra charge but the majority are included in your day pass, there is a foreigner discount – you are supposed to need ID but we were never asked for any, wonder why? We had a brilliant day; the flume and jungle adventure were my favourites.

 

And so, our mini-break in Seoul has come to an end. We had a lot of fun and seen and done more than I expected to in three days but there is a lot we didn’t get to do; I would love to see the changing of the guard at Gyeongbokgung palace, then there is the War Museum, lots of art galleries, we didn’t get to the DMZ and many more. In fact, probably enough for another trip up north some time. Though we might go when it is a bit warmer next time.
