    Different experience for the family. Nice architecture and gardens. We enjoyed the walk. It is cold in December, so be prepared.

    A breathtaking experience. I recommend going with a professional that knows the place but it is so worth the walk. Not fit for disabled persons however

    This is a walkway stretching a stream of flowing water. It was said to be cleaned and redeveloped. Along the way are several decors . This time it was themed for Christmas.

    Seoul, the capital of South Korea is a lively and bustling metapolis with rich cultural heritage. The city has a good transportation system, so many people such as commuters or tourists are good at using it anywhere, anytime. Seoul has also a lot of sightseeing and attractions such as museums, amusement parks, good restaurant and so on. And there are many shopping centers, so people can look around the place or buy some things. I think If you were to travel to Seoul, you would be satisfied with your trip. Most of all, Han River which is my favorite place has the beautiful scenery featuring the river, bridges and parks. It provides a serene space for those seeking relaxation, allowing them to comfortably rest on the grass. What’s more, people can ride a bike or walk around the park when they want to exercise. For these reasons, I highly recommend you come and explore Seoul.

    This aquarium is located in the Coex mall in Gangnam, Seoul.

    We enjoyed our visit - lots of Fish varieties we had never seen in other aquariums before as they are local to Korea and Asia.

    Displays are well organised and informative & my favourite section is the large tank where you can sit and watch the sharks, sting rays and schools of fish swimming around whilst listening to background music - very soothing.

    Exhibits were well displayed & children would enjoy it very much. Displays were quirky eg telephone box with fish swimming inside it.

    The Amazonia section was fascinating.

    There’s penguins, prairie dogs and manatees too.

    We spent about 1.5 hours here. It is quite deceptive in its size, as when you enter the aquarium there is a childlike vibe in terms of displays and colours.
    Then as you walk around there’s more and more displays and new creatures to meet.

    It’s a good place to visit especially if cold/ wet weather and need an indoor activity. Recommend as worth visiting.

    I cannot believe I only managed to visit this place at my third Seoul trip. Yeouido Hangang Park is a serene riverfront area a bit away from the main tourist route. It is the best option to appreciate the beauty of Hangang at its fullest. A stroll along the waterfront boardwalk is relaxing and soothing. It is also a perfect place to escape the urban bust.

    A fairly large and lovely park which isn't overly crowded like other tourist spots. Beautiful views when I visited in autumn. The only area with lots of tourists is the cosmos flower field (it's pretty but the park has more to offer). Great for strolls in autumn weather.

    Olympic park is near to Lotte World, I went over for dinner after my visit.

    Went to see the Sika Deers… funny thing when asking local’s about the park and deers, the response 100% of the time was that there are none…well I have the pictures to prove them wrong:).

    Beautiful park in the snow, kids enjoyed themselves pelting their parents (me in particular ) with snowballs. There’s also bunnies to see.

    This is the small central park at the island of Yeouido. Amid imposing, ultramodern skyscrapers, it is a tranquil urban oasis with a small Korean pavilion. Even without the cherry blossoms, Yeouido Park is a lovely place to explore.

    We went during the full bloom of silver grass (and cosmos flowers). Lots of people but being so big it didn't feel crowded. It was out-of-this-world beautiful, with the silver grass moving with the blowing of the wind. Some really cute art installations throughout the park plus a great view of Han river and Seoul. A wonderful experience, do not miss this in the fall.

    The zoo was simple but good enough for my child. The whole park itself is really big. My girl had fun at the playground and seeing some animals. It is also accessible by the subway. Worth a visit with children!

    Nice easy park to get to, the weather wasn't great when I went, so the view was not as good. There were a few people who also went here and walked with their dogs or used the exercise equipment.

    Without thinking about it we decided to hike Inwangsan on a Saturday.
    Saturdays may not be the best time to hike Inwangsan Mountain because of the streams of people making their way up to the peak, fortunately we started in the opposite direction to the majority of the crowds and had a great climb without the long queueing to get up the rocky peak. My internet research paid off following the recommendations to take Metro line 3 (orange line) to Gyeongbokgung Station, take Exit 3 and head to the bus stop on your right a few minutes down the road. Take either bus 1020, 7022 or 7212. Travel for 10-12 minutes to Jahamungogae stop, cross the road to find the start of the trail. The hike up the mountain was challenging at times but thoroughly enjoyable, it took us roughly forty minutes to reach the peak. From the peak the views were stunning looking over Seoul. We continued on along the path down the mountain, through the congressed sections of the narrow path/stairs, then weaving our way through the streets to Dongnimmun Station. A very satisfying morning hike. I look forward to returning to Inwangsan Mountain on our next visit to Seoul.
