I decided to visit this park as it is near my hotel. For all its rich historical significance, it is also a nice, small park from which to take a breather and quiet walk in the heart of the city. During autumn, it is also...More
Finally got a chance to visit where my grandfather participated in the March 1st 1919 Independence Movement. This location is an important part of Korean history and its struggles with Japanese occupation.
This park has some historical significance as others have mentioned already. It’s the first modern park that was established in Seoul. A 15th century 10-story pagoda is encased in glass but it’s not easy to get a great picture of. There are also monuments...More
It's just 10 minutes walking distance from Makers hotel where we stayed to this park , we arrive around 9am to catch a bus from here to Nami island , it's a small park with Korean gazebo , bush & trees .
I stopped by this park and it took me about 30-45 minutes to walk around the grounds and stop and read the various plaques. The highlights are a well-preserved 15th century Pagoda encased in a protective glass structure, as well as a monument towards the...More
Not far from my hotel in Seoul, was a public park – Tapgol Park – also known as pagoda park.
I found it to be a delightful park that was peaceful. It has the statue of Son Byeong-hee.
The park has historical significance treasures like...More
This park is thought to have been created in the 1890s. Opened to the public in 1913.Thpark was the strating point of the March First Independence Movement. There is a relief commemorating this event.The park is the site of the Wongaksa Temple.
This park was near where we stayed and also not too far from jongmyo shrine. We walked here during our walkabout of the Jogno neighbourhood. There is a pagoda and monument here. It is just a small park.
Hi, I will be going on a trip to Seoul and Jeju Island with my family and I'm pretty confused on how to plan it out. We're a family of 4, interested in nature, museums, palaces, traditional culture, and food. I'm personally very interested in shopping (ahem stationary and little pouches and bags (ex. Ithinkso) and ipad mini cases and ahem). My brother is interested in cars and my dad is extremely interested in traditional things and nature. Our family has 2 people in their 50s, my brother and...More

My thoughts... If you stay in Jeju for 2-3 days that leaves you 4-5 days in Seoul. I can't comment on whether it's better to go to Jeju at the start or the end of your trip, I think that's your own personal preference! I would group sightseeing in Seoul by area. Nami Island is at least a half day trip in itself. eg 1 day: Gwanghwamun - Gyeongbokgung Palace - Bukchon Hanok Village and/or Samcheondong - Insadong - Tapgol Park. 1 day: Myeongdong - N Seoul Tower/Namsan Park -...More

Your itinerary looks great. I am not sure if you will be able to visit all for Day 1 and Day 2 except you do it fast like 30-60 min at each place. Most of the palaces are the same. You can keep it like this, but when you are there and no time for all, you can drop some palaces. On Day 3, if you visit everland, I am sure it will take at least half day. The same for Lotte World except if you just wanna take pictures there.
Nami Island; ITX vs Shuttle bus (5 Replies)
Hi, Just need your input- We will be setting off from Hongik Uni Station. Hongik Uni -> Yongsan (10 mins and no transfer) as opposed to Hongik Uni -> Jongno3(Sam) ga station (19mins with a transfer @ City Hall). The ITX from Yongsan to Gapyeong takes only 40mins I heard while the shuttle bus from Tapgol Park will take around 1 hr 45 mins. My hubby and I will be bringing our 2 children (2 and 7 yrs old) who will get bored easily on long bus journeys. Ive read up on both ways...More

I read shuttle bus takes 1 to 1.5 hours but guess it's always the traffic that gets in the way. The time difference may be due to where they drop you off. The train stop's located about 2km away, 20-min walk whereas the shuttle bus drops you at the parking lot.
