Seoul Grandpark is easily accessible via subway M4.

It is a grand park, and suits the natural lovers the most. THere is no entrance fee for the park, yet seoul government taken good care of it.

Recommendation :

a) Go via subway m4
b) Visit in the morning, the air was fresh
c) Suitable for all family members
d) Take the trains to go around the park, as the park is so huge and will be a burden to elderly
e) Visit the zoo, entrance fee was 3000 won with many animals, so worthwhile
f) Highlight of the Zoo : silverback gorilla, dolphin show at 1130am
g) U may spend 3-4 hours easily there.

I've visited this awesome place around october 2012 with husband and a daugther. Since we are from Malaysia, this is my first time visited seoul with this fantastic view in autumn season. Coming here not because of their animals but wanted to see and feel how colorful autumn trees look alike with our own eyes. One thing that my daughter like is sitting on the chairlift while we enjoy the very beautiful sceneries from above. t's a worth visit this place only in an autumn season for people like us.

For the short time that we had in Seoul and the fact that we only relied on the subway to get to Seoul Grand Park, we were pleasantly surprised at the variety of birds to be seen there. The park is easly accessible by Seoul Metro, had KFC on the grounds and is clean and safe. Late March is really not a good time to see lots of birds but still, we still saw at least thirteen new bird species in a space of four hours!

Guess choosing to go in winter was both a good and bad idea.

The brutal cold was not forgiving, but the view was worth every shiver and frostbite I suffered. The zoo being surrounded by mountains, which made the view amazingly beautiful and the streams within made the view even prettier. There was buses to bring visitors around the zoo, which was fairly big, but it is definitely a good workout.

The zoo was not catered for visiting in the winter as most of the enclosures were closed, and animals being put indoors, where it was heated. The conditions of the indoor enclosures was pretty bad and the smell was pungent and took getting used to.

What I loved most though, was the baby animals section where we got to see various animals up close just separated by a glass panel. Seeing the baby leopard up close was amazing .

Would return again to have a look at the animals in their natural enclosure if I ever go again in spring or autumn. Mainly because of the affordable admission and the wide variety of animals we can see. But this time, I would take the free shuttle and not walk the whole area. =P
