Korea: Seoul (Day 3)

We decided on Lotte World (롯데월드) instead of Everland due to distance. Lotte World was ...okay because the exciting rides were all closed. Bummer. And I'm not exaggerating when I say we spent almost half the time waiting in line. There was this ride which we queued for at least an hour under the hot sun, when we finally entered, we had to queue some more, the line just snakes round and round. After ANOTHER hour or so, it was finally our turn! AND WHAT DO YOU KNOW, THE RIDE BROKE DOWN. You could see a bit of smoke coming out from the interior of the ride. Well luckily we weren't on the ride but still, it had to break down right in front of our face. -_- We popped by a random Korean diner and I discovered a whole new side of kimbaps (김밥). Who knew kimbaps are actually so delicious!!

P.S. I think the Day-Pass means you can exit and enter unlimited amount of times but I'm not too sure.

Dongdaemun Shopping Town (동대문종합시장 쇼핑타운) wholesale purchasing comes to life after 10pm. You can see lots of shop owners coming in to get their stock, you can still buy stuff but some shops don't let you buy 1 or 2 pieces. This shopping town is mega huge, you can really shop to your heart's content. We reached at 11pm and stayed till 4+am to take the first subway back.

Opening hours: 08:00 - 16:00
Directions: Dongdaemun station (Seoul subway Line 1, 4), Exit 8 or 9.
