We visited with a 3 year old and a 7 year old and we had a lot of fun. There is quite a bit of walking but there are trams and gondolas to ride. Quite a bit of animals to see and even a small amusemen... read more »
휴일이고 날씨도 좋아 관람객이 정말 많았습니다. 치킨을 먼저 사고, 리프트를 타고 입구에 도착. 동물원 안 호랑이사 가는 리프트는 50분 가량 기다려야 되어 걸어서 관람 시작 하였고, 곤충관, 야행관, 남미관 거쳐 곰, 호랑이 보고 나니 기운 없어 리프트 타고 내려왔습니다. 산책, 운동, 공부 모두 즐겁게 한 보람찬 하루 입니다~Holiday weather like here, really. The first accident, lift the chicken arrived at the entrance to the ride. Not a Zoo tiger have to wait 50 minutes to lift four is going to walk away from the spectator's row, tubes, pipes, insects, I see a bear, a tiger through the South American Pavilion do not take the lift down to the aura. Walking, exercise is a great day to entertain both studied,show original

One of the largest arguments used to support keeping wild animals like dolphins and whales in captivity is the fact that they would never be able to survive in the wild after life in a tank. Sambal was illegally captured along with three other dolphins for display at Jeju’s Pacific Land theme park and the Grand Seoul Zoo in South Korea. Nearly three years later and Sambal is thriving in her wild home! She was recently spotted off the coast of South Korea with a healthy calf in toe!
Overall a very nice huge zoo. When I went there it cost only 3500won for a day pass, which I, as a European, consider super cheap. You can easley spend the whole day there, which I would recommend because it takes around 1h by subway to get there.
My kids enjoyed this place very much. Zoo full of exitment
"A Day at the Zoo" The zoo was good. Ended up spending about 7 hours there. Was not expecting that. It was bigger than I anticipated. For ￦4,000, this was money well spent. The "shows" are interesting. I definitely suggeat the dolphin show considering it is the only actual "show" and it is free. We saw many feedings and I would highly recommend the lion one. All the others were "ho-hum". The Sky Lift was a waste of money. ￦5,500 to ride a ski lift. The one over the zoo might be worth it but they had already taken my money and wanted more to experiece that one (￦10,000 for "2 rides"). Take the Elephant train instead. ￦1,000 and well worth saving the long walk, especially at the end of the day. They have all the big animals you are looking for (elephant, tiger, lion, hippo, giraffe, cheetah, etc.) with a couple unexpected ones. The only major complaint is the landscaping. With a simple weed-wacker, they could easily clear out the habitats for clear viewing. The bushes in front are also a constant obstruction. We struggled to see many of the animals because of this. All-in-all, I would say it was a day well spent and would recommend it to most. Would I go again? Probably not. "One-time-experience"

A very nice place having many attractions. You can take chair lift to take an overview of the whole park. I like Zoo here having many animals and wide roads to take leisure walks.
