안녕하세요! 오늘은 서울에서 어디로 가시려고 하시나요? 😊

Amusement Park

Lotte World is a large-scale leisure and entertainment complex located in Songpa-gu, Seoul, South Korea. Lotte World is one of the largest theme parks in South Korea, offering a variety of amusement rides, shows, restaurants, shops, and even a skating rink, making it a great place for families and friends to enjoy.

One of the fun aspects of amusement parks is renting and wearing uniforms to enjoy the experience. There are uniform rental shops near the amusement park where you can choose from a variety of uniforms and have fun dressing up. Additionally, you can enhance your enjoyment of the amusement park by wearing animal or various headbands available for purchase at the park.

I hope to take a picture at Lotte World's photo spot like the one in the picture when I visit this place !
The Hyundai Seoul & Lotte Tower:

As the largest department store in Seoul, visiting without some background knowledge can lead to plenty of wasted time and missed opportunities. Thankfully, we are here for you! We’ll tell you all you need to know about the well-known brands, pop-up stores, photo zones and various goods, as well as the fun sights and activities you’ll find along the way.


The place where you need to come by!



  • Waterfall Garden, The Hyundai Seoul’s signature spot.

Garden is a must-see photo spot of The Hyundai Seoul, with real water cascading down from the third floor. The waterfall was created with the motif of enjoying nature in the middle of the city. The lights reflecting off the moving water make for a great photo background.






  • Sounds Forest

You didn’t think you could visit The Hyundai Seoul and leave without taking a single picture, did you? If you did, you’ll certainly change your mind after visiting Sounds Forest, a small arboretum where you can enjoy the warm sunlight streaming through the glass ceiling, and hear the sound of birds calling in the foliage.



Lotte World Tower

  • SEOUL SKY is located on floors 117-123 of Lotte World Tower,

the nation's tallest and the world's fifth tallest building. The observatory offers a panoramic view of the entire capital city, beautiful both day and night. SEOUL SKY is comprised of an exhibition zone, observation deck, sky deck, dessert cafe, sky terrace, lounge, and more.


Things to See on Each Floor!

 

Observatory Lobby

Inside the Lotte World Mall in the main lobby area, you can find the entrance to the Seoul Sky Observatory. Inside is the main ticket booth and entryway, a little past the ticket booth outside the doors is the Seoul Sky gift shop and the group ticket booth.


Elevator Access & Exhibition Zone

Explore the Exhibition zone and see some of the technology used during the construction of the tower. The exhibit features several pieces of art and mesmerizing screens and light displays on your way to the elevator.


The elevator ride is accompanied by an amazing animated experience showing a time-lapse construction of the tower.




Sky Deck


Once you have made it to the Sky Terrace you have to opportunity to step outside the tower and feel the breeze hundreds of meters above the city. See the world’s highest indoor glass floor recognized by the Korea Record Institute and the Guinness book of world records. This 45mm thick glass floor lets you feel exactly how far up you really are. It’s an astounding perspective to take pictures, but don’t stare too long because it can be disorienting (especially if you aren’t good with heights).


Gyeongbokgung Palace
There are many places to visit when we travel. But as we all think, visiting the landmarks of that country is such a thing.

On this page, “Gyeongbokgung Palace” which is Korea’s landmark will be introduced. As you see in the phrase, “gung” literally means palace. Since it’s hard to understand as foreigners do not know Korean, people call as the above. Gyeongbokgung Palace is the palace of the Joseon Dynasty. If you go near the place, there will be many people with Korean traditional costumes.


Here are some tips for visiting the place. If you are a student in Korea, take your student ID. They will let you enter without any fee. Second, if you wear Korean traditional costumes the entry fee will be free. In this way, you can try both wearing a costume and visiting the place. Also, every day at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., except when it is a holiday, you can see “the gate guard changing ceremony”. In addition, it is even hard to get a ticket between Koreans, there is a chance to have a traditional tea time.

So check the day and try to get a ticket!


 Gyeongbokgung Palace The Gate Guard Changing Ceremony

Bukchon Hanok Village which is located near the place is also where you should visit if you plan to go to Gyeongbokgung Palace. Here was the place where royal family members of the Joseon royal family, for example, the princess who married lived in this alley because it wasn’t available to live in the palace when the royal family except the king married.


They are selling some traditional food and tea in traditional architecture named “Hanok” so try it if you’re interested.
