  • Line 4 Seoul Station from is about 40 minutes. Purchase elephant train and lift ticket and was admitted. Elephant train to the Zoo, was in the lift down animals from the Zoo in the top. This lift is quite long, and long. Some gave me when I bought tickets to Cairo. Height and wind and very cold. It was freezing. Like many patterns everyone went on to reverse walking, come down. It is certainly better. Well within the Zoo in the wider it is the sense of hiking. Because the animals are cold even in the building. Another lift from the Zoo there was passing from the Zoo over the pond is cold and because the did not take anyone. Hotel is close to the amusement park, 10 minutes a day can enjoy and want to come back to it isn't cold at this time.

  • Among all zoos I visited in my life, I think this is the best! Environment is clean and animals seen are all appear healthy and happy! Many different animals/reptiles there and you would not be bored....  more »
  • The huge territory. You can go to the Zoo by cableway across the Lake. There is an exposition of flowers, entry and payment separately. There is an amusement park, but it's a little further. We were only in the Zoo. There you can spend the whole day. Animals are not behind bars but separated well. You can see how fed elephants, Tigers. You can climb the observation deck to zhirafam. Climb inside a Baobab. It was very interesting and child and adult

  • One of the memorable part was watching staff feeding a bunch of lions by throwing some chicken meat (this happens only a couple of times a day at certain times, so I recommend checking that first if you want to watch it) Took my Canadian husband here, he absolutely loved it having never been to such a big zoo with a variety of animals. It takes a good 2-3 hours to see the entire place. The entrance fee is very small.
  • Amazing scenery and a huge variety of animals also vary good snack vendors also has a huge park for kids to play as well as a avary. Also a reptile and sea exhibit.
  • Seoul grand park is one of the most beautiful place to visit. I have visited many times.
  • You can feel that the park, especially the zoo animals, are really taken care of. Every animal seems to be healthy. Plus, the whole place is worth a day spent.
  • I visited this Park in the night after 7pm, having taken around 50-min subway ride from central Seoul. The subway station nearest to the Park is named after the Grand Park itself. I were there primarily to see the cherry blossoms. There were of course much fewer cherry blossom trees compared to Yeouido or Seokchon Lake, nevertheless, this Park is much more spacious and bigger and with fewer people as compared to the ever crowded Yeouido or Seokchon Lake. The cherry blossom trees are to the left of the entrance to the Park. It was still a nice sight to behold even in the night, due to the brightly lit night lights. For the cherry blossom season especially, there was some nice, romantic decorations and also a row of 5-6 pianos freely available for visitors to play a nice melody to accompany the romantic ambience of the place. Could see many couples and families with children being enthralled by the place, taking we-fies and photos. Overall, a nice place to visit in the evenings, after the main crowd visiting the zoo and other themed-attractions have left.
