A picnic in Olympic Park on a Sunday. If you spend Saturday night out on the town. a Sunday in the park is a great way to relax and see how Koreans spend their free-time. The park is huge with all kinds of events, it is a great place to people watch and take a walk. There are also rollerbalders, street hockey games, and skateboarders galore. The park was really well-designed and it complements the modern city backdrop really well.
THE LOTTE WORLD MUSEUM OF KOREAN FOLKLORE is a museum designed to reflect Korea's rich cultural heritage & a tangible way to bring 5000 years of history to visitors.
This museum differs from the rest in that live enactments of traditional chores & crafts, recreations based on ultra-modern audio & video technology & lifelike diorama displays are presented to allow visitors to enjoy the experience fully. Here, the emphasis is placed on those who created objects & lived out their lives many hundreds of years ago, rather than on the objects themselves.
At the American Adventure, many rides such as the Wonder Ferris Wheel (as pictured), Double Loops & Cork Screw, Jet Coaster (speedy run for 4 1/2 mins going through retro-runs & drops), Viking, Top Jet (high flying with a spacecraft) & Bumper Car (violent driving!) are available for the young at heart!

If you are with Kids, try to visit Lotte World. It has a amusement park and a little museum where you can have a look of old Korean way of life. It has a wonderful miniatures of Korean traditional buildings and palaces, too. Have a look.
This is my friend from Hong Kong inside the Lotte World Museum in front of totem poles.
I think best fun park in Korea is Everland at Kyunggi-Do. But if you want to go somewhere within Seoul, Lotte World is the best place. Behind my friend, you can see the magic Island. You can ride on some exciting vehicles such as Vikings, Rollercoaster, etc. Besides these, it has skating rink, many restaurants, museum and shoppingcenter.
This octagonal pavilion amed 'Palgakjeong' in the center of Tapgol Park. it was built King Gojong 1897,with an Tapgol Park.

...and there is also an open-air-theatre. The architecture reminds me a little bit to my home country Austria and our bavarian neighbours ....
They also have a minature model of the Saturn-V-rocket, in which the americans went to the moon ....
The only korean style house in the whole area... somebody told me that there is a restaurant .... I didn´t watch... what a pity .. :-(((
The architecture there remind me to buildings I saw in Germany and Alsace .... and the water gave it a spirit of Venice ...
... and there is a big skating area, which allows skating even in summer ... and the people looked very happy about this ....
Take a ride in the Helicycle when you are tired of walking, hehe... that's what I did. But beware, you've to cycle! It's a bicycles over the high rail! Very thrilling & fun!
At the European Adventure corner, buildings such as those of Amsterdam & Holland were being replicated as pictured. The Hague Bakery can also be found here :-)
At the ZOO & SAFARI WORLD, panda, lions, tigers & bears can all be watched from within the safety of the vehicle.
