Right on line 4 it was very easy to get to from my location in Donam-dong. You need more than just a day to see everything it has to offer, and repeat visits are a grand idea if you want to get away from the city and see all it has to offer.
We spend our time at the zoo. The zoo was pretty cool, lots of animals and each area themed and decorated. We didn’t even get to see everything because it was getting late.
Here are some of my favorites:
While my mom was here, we went to Everland, a giant theme park/zoo/water park all-in-one. There was this part where you could feed these birds and they flew around freely in this area. I’m terrified of birds. While I was a kid I was attacked by bird 11 times in my life. My cat was blinded and later killed by a bunch of birds when I was a toddler. Me + bird does not compute. Here is a funny picture of me trying to conquer my fear. Yeah, didn’t work.
Day 3: Happy Chuseok!! Today lots of things were closed due to the holiday but one place that wasn’t close was EVERLAND!! So we took the subway to Gangnam Station on line 2 then we took bus number 5002 to Everland. On the way there the bus was standing room only. At the bus stop we took a free shuttle to EVERLAND. At first Everland pissed us off because the ticket booth lady was an idiot and when Chad tried to buy tickets she was just not getting it. He even said it in Korean. So Chad and I got super discounts, Kyle and Jamie got the foreigner discount and mom had to pay full price, because I guess she looks Korean…. Yeah ticket booth lady=stupid.
Once inside the place was great! Really crowded with all the other Asians in Korea besides Koreans. It was the Halloween Festival so everything was themed Halloween, which was amazing!! Then we went to this area that had birds you can feed, I’m terrified of birds but I tried it out.
Then was so much to do and see. In Everland, you have rides, a zoo and shows. Here are some highlights.
So this was last weekend… Chad, Jamie and some of our co-workers went to the Children’s Grand Park. Beside it being a monsoon all over the park we had a great time… once it did stop raining. There was an amusement park, gardens, playgrounds, art gallery and even a zoo! The amusement park cost money and some attractions and shows cost some money but everything else is free.
