Need Advice on Seoul Trip

by DIY

Hello,

We are a family of 2 adults and 3 children age 11 to 18. We'll be in Seoul in Dec. Appreciate your recommendations/advice on:

1) Day ski trip near Seoul (about 1 hr drive). Do we need to prebook the ski package? What is best for beginners?
2) Outdoor Natural Hot Spring
3) Outdoor ice rink near Seoul
4) Lotte world or Everland - which is more suitable for our kids?

Thank you!!

Take this with a grain of salt, I haven't been there in almost 10 years. Most skiing in the ROK was easy....I wouldn't worry about it! I personnally would not have visited the Hot Springs. Lotte World is cool and near the Olympic park, it's very neat and great if you have really little children. Everland is out of the city and it's very pretty...it's more like a typcial American Amusement Park....plus they have an animal park (or they used to)

Re: Need Advice on Seoul Trip

Last time I was in Seoul was 2004, but things haven't changed that much. First of all, everything you want to do is going to take more than an hours drive. Closest decent hot spring is at Onyang about 2 hours south of Seoul with good traffic. Second, your best bet for skiing that close would be Bears Town. I do not know of an outdoor skating rink, but Lotte World has a rather large indoor one. A word of warning about the skiing. Koreans don't have the same ski etiquette that you may be used to....more like rugby than skiing. So, even though the slopes at Bears Town are pretty easy, the skiers can be quite aggressive.

Travel Tips for Seoul

National Flag of the Republic of Korea (S.Korea)

by xuessium

The Korean national flag is called Taegukki.

The white field represents the people's purity and their desire for peace, while the central emblem is the red and blue yin-yang symbol, depicting the concepts of creation and development through duality and balance. (Yin means dark and cold; while Yang means bright and hot, in that note)

Surrounding this are four black KWAE symbols, which are taken from the I CHING and represent the four seasons, the four compass points, the four elements, and the sun, moon, earth, and heaven. They denote the process of yin and yang going through a spiral of change and growth. Source: Flags Of The World

Funny Architecture

by jburron

Most buildings in Seoul are pretty modern (more or less). Out in the country things get a little wonky as it seems that some homes were added onto as the owners moved up in the world (with a new room every year).

Take a look at this door. On the way up to the Namsan gondola there are these places built into the mountain. Looks like this door is for a kiddie-playhouse, but it's actually a side entrance. Like I said, you see a lot more of this in rural Korea, but interesting to see here.

(My cousin, pictured, is about 6 feet tall.)

Respect ur elders!

by minwoo11

Korean ppl are very polite! The youth are very respectful and helpful to their seniors. On the train I see boys and girls offering their seats to ajusshi and ajumas. Helping out if they need a hand.
As tourist we may be new and unsure of their customs but we should read up on it. Pick lil things up by observing what they do. Offering your seats, helping someone up the stairs. Bowing and smiling. Just lil things. You feel good and they will be impress as well. That you took the extra time to learn something about them. Their culture and how they do things.

Street Fortuneteller

by jckim

This Street Fortuneteller seen was anywhere at all in Street. Korean peoples are usually drop in sometime ask for in the future about marital harmony as predicted, destiny, choice of an auspicious day, naming, divination and all for oneself.

Umbrella, Warm Clothes, and Good Walking Shoes

by Ewingjr98

In most Asian countries, you won't get a good feel for the local culture and people unless you spend a lot of time walking. Seoul is no exception, so bring a good pair of walking shoes.

Winter in Seoul is relatively mild, but we do get our share of snow, especially in January.

July, August, and September are the wettest months of the year, so bring an umbrella.
