  • As other people have written, close to Metro station, convenient. There is quite a distance around the entire, sometimes up and down. In addition to a ground intact but because after the rain very slippery and I think. Shoes Sneakers or trekking shoes are recommended. But the solemn atmosphere of the long-awaited off-site AI is spoiled.

  • The cost of 1000 won. The tombs themselves it just fells, or anything interesting. Park walked somewhere around 3 km, forest unrealistically beautiful. Relax on the hustle, breathe forest-Yes! The territory clean, all the trees are signed and can be seen that for all the carefully monitored.

  • The Park, which are hidden from prying eyes tombs of the Kings of the Joseon Dynasty, is not very far from the COEX. Large park with paths among the trees, you can walk more than an hour. The tombs themselves are mounds surrounded by a stone fence. Dream emperors guarded by stone statues of court officials and animal figures. Inside the park there is a pavilion where you can learn the details of device tombs, the film demonstrates in English.
