Korea Winter Discovery 2010 - Everland Theme Park

Upon returned from Jeju Island we spent almost half a day at this Korea famous outdoor theme park known as "Everland". This park equipped with many different kinds of rides and attractions that are suitable for all ages. In it there is also a safari park in Zoo-Topia area where tourists would get a close up view of the wild animals.


Finally gets to see something familiar and decent for breakfast at one of the cafe known as "Azale" at Jeju, Grand Hotel where we stays during our Jeju stop over.

After breakfast we proceed to our flight back from Jeju International Airport to Gimpo Airport in Seoul.

About an hour bus ride, we transfer the theme park shuttle bus service from the foot of the mountain to the entrance of the Everland theme park. (about 5 - 8 minutes ride)

Everland is opened in 1976 and it is about 1,200,000yd2. It is ranked as the 4th theme park in the world by offering 5 Main Festivals and exciting entertainments all year around.

Amazing Christmas lighting at Global Fair area. Since we reached there almost 12pm and we have only around 4.5 hours in the park or so to play those rides. But since we are not those adventure people, most of the rides we did not complete except exploring around the park and accompany my kid for some kid's friendly rides and shows.
