We went there to see the SOMA museum in 30 minutes. We spent 90 minutes look at all the statues outside in the park.

It's interesting and pretty. I was there in winter, so there was an ice rink with many people ice skating. There are some coffee shops nearby as well. It's really good for children as well as adults.

This is where the 1988 summer olympics was held. Easy to go to because there are two subway stations to get here -Mongchontoseong and Olympic Park. You can see sports stadiums, forests and grassy fields. I highly recommend to check out the lone tree.

We visited on a fine autumn day. Autumn foliage was everywhere and made the park so beautiful. It is a big place, so it does not feel crowded. We started from the Mongchontoseong Station and took a nice walk at the road beside the park...More

This is one of the nearest to be in if you want to be in a place where full of trees. It could be crowded especially during a festival or an event. A great escape for couples where needs to spend alone time.

Pretty place to visit however if you were at the 2018 winter Olympics there is no reason to attend. A great deal of walking and your time could be spent seeing more interesting things in Seoul.

Hi Chris. Sorry I don't know the answer as I didn't go to that area. Olympic Park is about a mile I'd guess from the Olympic Stadium and other sports arenas.

Anyone to hangout in Seoul next April? (1 Reply)
Hi I was in Seoul last October and I was lucky to meet cool solo travelers from TripAdvisor. I’ll revisit it again from 13 to 22 April and I want to have the experience of meeting new people again. My main activities are: 1/ Hiking, hiking culture in Korea is the best! 2/ Visiting some museums I missed last trip. 3/ Visiting Seoul parks and forests like: Olympic park and Dream forest. 4/ Hanging out in Heondae area. Any company?

I have been in Beijing 3 days and have visited so far: Tienanmen Square, Forbidden City, Jinghan Park, Beihai Park, Great Wall at Mutianyu, New Summer Palace, Olympic Park & Birds Nest. I have one full day left tomorrow and am looking for any must-see's that I haven't been to. Was thinking the Beijing Zoo, yet did not read any positive postings on it. Perhaps Temple of Heaven...More

Temple of Heaven for sure is a good choice. Lama Temple is nice as well. I personally would not vote for the zoo. What I miss on your list is the food. Did you have all the good food of BJ already? Can I assume you are not up for shopping? There are some nice museums and there is a famous art district. I personally also like the parks that are very typical for Chinese cities.
