Everland is a huge park that is divided into five different sections: American Adventure, Magic Land, European Adventure, Zoo Topia and Roller Coasters. It cost 40,000 won to enter the park which is about $35CAD.
Near the entrance of the park there is a Global Fair which is a bazaar that is decorated with imitations of castles from France, middle eastern countries, Spain, India and Russia. Many different time periods throughout Europe and also different architectural styles to look at. What a great way to start off a park.
As we made our way further in the park, we made our way to Safari World. This is like the zoo part of the park where we saw white tigers, lions, bears, and more! Lucky for us, in April 2010 Herbivore Safari opened so we were able to get close to giraffes, elephants and ostriches. So cool!! There are also pandas at this zoo! They were so super cute! I wanted to bring one home but Jodi being logical told me it wouldn’t be such a great idea, "too big for the suitcase". After a bit of a walk, throughout the park we decided it was time to try some rides.
We left the park around dinner time so we had a bit of time to do our souvenir shopping before leaving Seoul. Myong-dong is the main shopping area. It has so much in it that it reminds me of New York. While we were there we didn’t buy much but I ended up getting a folding fan, a cell phone charm that was decorated and of course who could forget chopsticks! After all the time in Korea so far, I still have problems with them.
After that our time in Seoul was over. I wish we had more time here because there is still so much to do! Oh well, that just means we will have to come back one day.
