Everland (에버랜드)

Taking advantage of a school holiday the KLI girls and I decided to go and take a ride to Everland. This is the biggest theme park in Korea and its located close enough to Seoul that it is possible to go and come on the same day. One bus away (long ride though) from the Gangnam bus stop you’ll get easily there. (more…)

Lotte World (롯데월드)

Lotte World is a theme park owned by the Lotte Company. You see Korea is virtually owned by 3-5 companies. One of them is Lotte. Don´t believe me, well lets say many of the products found in convenience stores are made or traded by Lotte. The company even has its own fast food restaurants named after the company!!! (The famous Lotteria) Back to the theme park, it is conveniently located next to the Jamsil subway station. From the subway station take exit 4 you’ll first encounter the shopping mall. Yes one of the amazing, great, and sometimes sad things of Korea is that you can spend a whole life without even seeing daylight. Once you are inside the shopping mall (which also hosts a skating ring) you’ll be able to find the entrance to Lotte World.  (more…)
