Autumn in South Korea – Seoul (Day 3)

When we arrived at Seoul Station, we took another train to Hyehwa subway station.

We got lost while looking for Bong House.  The directions which we got online were outdated.  😦  We asked some people for directions but they weren’t familiar with it.  We tried to use google map and somehow we were able to find the guesthouse.

The small road to Bong House.  This is the typical neighborhood which I often see in Koreanovelas.

Lotte World is a major recreation complex in Seoul, South Korea. It consists of the world’s largest indoor theme park (a Guinness World Record) which is open all year around,[1] an outdoor amusement park called “Magic Island”, an artificial island inside a lake linked by monorail, shopping malls, a luxury hotel, a Korean folk museum, sports facilities, and movie theaters. Opened on July 12, 1989, Lotte World receives over 8 million visitors each year and is considered, along with Tokyo Disney Resort, as one of the most world-class theme parks in Asia.[1] Lotte World can be easily accessed from Jamsil Station, on Line 2 and Line 8 of the Seoul Metropolitan Subway and SMRT, respectively. Located near the park is Seok-Chon Lake.

Lotte World is located in Sincheon-dong, Songpa-gu, Seoul, South Korea. It is made up of two main sections, the outdoor amusement park Magic Island,[2] and Adventure.[3] (Wikipedia)

The Gyroswing–our first ride. It was already dark and I wasn’t able to get a good photo of it. Photo credit:  xiaominginaiesec

I really didn’t want to ride the Gyroswing.  I’m scared of heights.  My friends kept on forcing me to join them until I agreed.  When we were taking our seats, Ritha, Joan and Tikoy suddenly chickened-out and left us.  I was so mad at them.  I wanted to go out but the seats were already locked.  I had no choice but to endure the torture.  While I was screaming my lungs out, I held Jao’s hand so tight.  hahaha!  When it was over, my head ached.  I’ll never ride anything that has to do with height and motion ever again (except airplanes, of course).

Inside the Haunted House. We watched a short horror film in 3D. I just closed my eyes the whole time because my head was already aching.

The Garden Stage which featured KPOP and a theatrical performance

The huge Ice Rink

There were a lot of other rides/attractions but I lost the interest  to explore because I was no longer feeling well.  We didn’t stay long and we went out to have dinner.

We walked around and checked the shopping malls nearby. It was very cold but we still managed to pose for this photo. 😀

P.S.  The photos were taken using a camera phone.  Credits to Lhynx Lim & Raynier Go for some of the photos that were used for this blog. :)
