Seoul's Grand Park is very huge, a 1.5 walk to the Seoul Zoo takes about 15 minutes.
The scenery is great - with tall trees, cool weather and the backdrop against the mountains I was there early in the morning, there were groups of Seoul's seniors up and about.
My expectations of zoos are on the high side as I am most familiar with the Singapore Zoo. Seoul's Zoo strikes me as vast. There are many animals to see, but it takes some time to walk to see them. A lot of food and beverage outlets were not open when I was there on a Monday morning.
It is also challenging for non Korean speakers to learn more about the animals, as most of the signboards have these information only in Korean - a little English will be certainly helpful!
I think the park is not a must-go, but will be good if you want to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city.
I was here in October 2013 and the weather was slowly turning to autumn. For the full works of an Autumn about in Seoul, head there in November.
