Did you know that you can take your kids to the Amusement and Theme Parks in Seoul? One of the most popular is Everland (Ebeoraendeu). It is located in Yongin, a suburb of Seoul, at 310 Jeondae-ri, Pogok-myeon, Yongin-si, Gyeonggi-do and it is the biggest theme park in South Korea. Everland would surely blow your mind.

Everland attracts about 2.6 million worldwide visitors. It was also the 10th most visited amusement park in 2007. There are a lot of cool attractions such as the Everland’s zoo and water park, which is known as Caribeban Bay. Did you know that Everland is operated by Samsung Everland? Samsung Everland is a subsidiary of Samsung Group.

The park is divided into 5 distinct zones, which are Global Fair, European Adventure, Magic Land, Zoo-Topia, and American Adventure:

The Global Fair is basically a place for visitors to buy food, souvenirs and pictures. There are a lot of shops here as well as special services such as stroller rental and lockers.

Zoo-Topia is a place for animal lovers; there are petting zoo, pony rides, and animal shows. If you wish to watch wild animals, you can ride on the Safari bus where you get to see these animals live! Did you know that the Zoo-Topia’s elephant, named Kosik, is famous for its ability to imitate Korean words? Awesome!

If you want to visit restaurants with European themes, head to the European Adventure! There is a flower garden encircled by a train, games and arcades and the ‘Mystery Mansion’ is another place of interest here where visitors get to shoot at ghosts. The ‘T-express’ is the first roller-coaster in Korea which is made out of wood.

Magic fans out there can also visit Magic Land, a great place to experience fun rides. The American Adventure on the other hand displays an American history theme; you’ll get to ride on the Wild West rides, Eagle’s Fortress thrill ride and the rodeo.

Jeju eating culture

Image

The people of Jeju eat a lot of beans, barley, millets, buckwheat, and dry-field rice. There is little production of rice. Those who live in the farm villages focus more on farming and diving fishery for those living at the water villages. People of Jeju love Mandarin orange and they were offered as presents to kings. Most of the Jeju food is made with saltwater fish, vegetables, and seaweed. The secret to cooking Jeju-style food is to keep its ingredient’s natural flavour. Likewise, anything natural is good 🙂
