Sammaksa Valley

비가 오고 난뒤에는 물이 좀 있어서 서울 근교 계곡으로 나쁘지 않은 곳 중 한 곳입니다.
많은 사람들이 방문하며 취사는 금지입니다.

Seoul Grand Park

Reviewed By JOIFL - Naples, Florida

This is one of the best Asian zoos we have visited. Their newer sections (particularly leopard/bear/tiger) are first-class and provide excellent habitats and good enrichment for the animals. They are in the process of more renovations, so expect some closures and construction activity.
The Zoo is quite large and has steep pathways from the entrance to the top. The best way to visit is to get a day pass for the chairlift at the bottom of the mountain (go to the lift house rather than take the "Elephant Train" from the Metro station (10 min walk)). You then have a fun ride to the Zoo gate. Buy a ticket, go in and to the chair lift immediately inside, which you ride to the top of the Zoo. From there, there are several possible paths down through the various exhibits. When you get to the bottom (entrance/exit), ride up again. Repeat as desired!
Across the road is the children's zoo (small) and the "Theme Garden" which depending on the season can be spectacular. We visited during the Rose Festival (late May-early June) and it was amazing.

Surisan Land

Reviewed By Hello_My_Journey - Bangkok, Thailand

After finished the meeting & some Missions with the partner at Gunpo. I got small journey at this place; Mt.Surisan. Unluckily, I came this place earlier in the month of March, otherwise the Pod-Ko (or Sukura) would be blossomed fully along this area. Anyway, I tried the wonderful hiking with my friend and kept the good scenery along the way we walked also ^___^

Gwangmyeong Cave

Reviewed By Ivan O

The caves located around 1 hr 30 mins deive from Seoul. Myeongdong cave is beautiful, there is a restaurant with perfect wine, collections of fish and plants, very good conditions. The problem is how about for older people ? As it will be hard to walk far from parking site to the cave, also inside the cave. And when we returned back at night, there are no lights on the way from cave to parking lot. Grade 7,5 out of 10

Hwaseong Fortress

Hwaseong Fortress in the town of Suwon is just a 30-minute train ride from Seoul. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of Korea’s most important historical treasures and is the only remaining walled fortress in the country.

Seoul Land

Reviewed By kang_a_ji - Brantford, Canada

Multicultural families in Korea can get half-price yearly passes and foreigners visiting Korea can get great deals on tourist websites. Seoul Land is a bit tired and needs a bit of TLC, but there is plenty to do and the kids love it. My 6 and 7 year old can go on most rides. Parking is free during the week and the surrounding mountain views are really pretty. For a full day experience, combine Seoul Land with the Grand Park (zoo).
We love the rollercoasters, flume ride and Larva Twister the most.
Food and beverages are not too expensive and outside food is allowed in, if you prefer to have a picnic. There are lots of water Fountains too.

National Gwacheon Science Museum

Reviewed By edisupp s - Seoul, South Korea

The museum is a wonderful place for families. There are many interactive displays and exhibits for kids to learn and play. As an adult I can say it's interesting but I wouldn't go again...it's not THAT interesting. It's about 30 minutes south of Sadang station in Seoul and located across the road from the rest of Seoul Grand Park including Seoul Land, the Zoo and other sites. Taking the subway is the most convenient on weekends as everyone with a car is fighting for parking space. Exit the Seoul grand park station (line 4) exit 5 and you're right in front of the museum. Next to the ticket booth there's a basketball court. and a convenience store. Inside the museum there is a large cafeteria on the second floor...don't expect much...in fact pack a lunch.
Surrounding the museum there is a lot of green space where visitors can rest or walk around.
Behind the museum is the Planetarium, insectarium, space world (totally not worth your time) and other outdoor exhibits.
FYI, on the right wing behind the childrens playroom, there are conference halls...outside there is a smoking booth...also the bathrooms by the conference halls are exceptionally clean compared to the rest of the museum ...most likely because not too many kids go back there.

Hwaseong Haenggung Palace

Reviewed By WorldTravellerSoon - Canada

The first thing we visited Suwon was to come to see the Hwaseong HaengGung. The palace is relative small compared to those in Seoul and there is no admission fee. There are site maps (in many languages) at the entrance. It helps you to navigate the palace.
Due of its small size, it is easy to go around the whole palace within a short among of time. There are life-size models of maids and servants in some of the rooms (kitchen, living room, classroom), which make it fun to look at. In the court yard, there are also 2 life-size models of the main characters of a very well know Korean soap opera. Many people take pictures with them.
