  • We got to the zoo on the subway, go long, although it is worth it. The zoo loved it. Be sure to take water and snack, we took 6 hours to view most of the enclosures, cafes on the territory I did not see. I really wanted to see the panda, but did not have to ((. Having made a circle on foot, went down to the entrance to the zoo. for two at the entrance, it's a baby elephant bus and one cable car ride, this trip we used on the first descent. The entrance to the zoo cost 9000, then more paid for the descent on the second funicular 12,000 won.

  • Seoul Grand Park is so big. It has zoo and botanical gardens. It's a kid friendly place so it also has children's zoo and the gardens of flowers. You can also take a look at the view of the lake by walking through the scenic routes that passes through the trees. It's a very peaceful place. I definitely recommend it.
  • Good place for kids and adults. Better to go before 9 am. Please take left entry. So that you can cover all items.
