ロッテワールド アイキャッチ画像

[Introduction]

I traveled to Seoul, South Korea, in early September. Although I was not blessed with weather at all, I enjoyed the trip as the food was delicious and people were kind. In this article, I will write about Lotte World as part of Day 4. Thanks to KKday, a Taiwanese optional tour sales site, I was able to buy tickets reasonably.

[Main Part]

Following the previous post, I came to Jamsil station by subway from Starfield COEX MALL. The area is a major tourist spot centering around “Lotte World”, and I will go around the area in the afternoon of the fourth day.

Lotte World

To begin with, I visited “Lotte World”.""

“Lotte World” has “Advanture”, an indoor theme park, and “Magic Island”, an outdoor amusement park. The weather was not good, so I will go around only the indoor “Adventure”.

“Lotte World” was opened in 1989, so it celebrates the 30th anniversary this year. The figure on the center is Lorry, a mascot character of “Lotte World”.""

Luckily, I was able to watch a parade.""

Lotte World Folk Museum

Lotte World housed “Lotte World Folk Museum” and I visited the museum.

Talking of Gyeongbokgung Palace, I visited it in the morning of the third day, but the site was suddenly closed due to a typhoon (see the related article).""

I would like to revisit it in the future, as I looked forward to the royal changing of the guard ceremony in Gyeongbokgung Palace.""

Lotte World Aquarium

Lotte had a large shopping mall called “Lotte World Mall” and there was an aquarium named “Lotte World Aquarium” in the mall, so I visited the aquarium.""

“Lotte World Aquarium” was opened in 2014 and consists of 5 oceans and 13 themes.

Let’s go into the aquarium.""

I was a little bit surprised to see such a skeleton.""

This ocean tunnel was 85 meters long.""

Can this fish recognize its own figure over the fish tank?""

Then, I will continue to go around Lotte World, but I will stop this article here due to the volume.

KKday’s Reasonable Ticket

FYI: To visit “Lotte World”, “Lotte World Folk Museum” and “Lotte World Aquarium”, I used “Seoul Lotte World+Lotte World Aquarium Tickets” offered by KKday, a Taiwanese optional tour sales site.

""

If I buy tickets of the three facilities at each ticket office, the total price is 88,000 KRW. However, KKday offers a set price around 33,700 KRW. So, if you are thinking of visiting “Lotte World”, “Lotte World Folk Museum” and “Lotte World Aquarium”, I would recommend KKday.

[Closing]

That’s it for the article about Lotte World as part of Day 4.

Lotte World is a major recreation complex, which consists of amusement parks, a folk museum, and an aquarium, which I visited in this article. In addition, there are a shopping mall, a tower with observation deck and a hotel. In particular, if you have small children, I would recommend Lotte World 🙂

In the next article, I will write about evening scene of Lotte World as part of Day 4.
