Sightseeing in Seoul –
I recently traveled on a complicated itinerary / Mileage Run Vacation to Seoul South Korea. I will be writing about my experience over the following posts:
Seoul Trip Report – Sightseeing in Seoul
During the first trip to Seoul, I stayed at the Sheraton about 25 minutes after the airport. The Sheraton was located across the street from a park as well as a number of unique buildings and bridges. The park had a lake that ran through it and walking and bike trails.
Along the trails there were several areas with gym equipment. Visitors could use the machines including an elliptical and other equipment. In addition, there were several children’s play areas.
In the area near the water, there was an animal retreat, and there were birds, ducks, Deer and bunnies in caged areas. It appeared that it was a mini zoo.
Around the water, guests could rent boats to enjoy the area. The water was somewhat clear and you could see fish present.
Along the walking trails there were water stations as well as vending areas.
The park featured some traditional Korean architecture and statues that stood out against the backdrop of modern buildings surrounding the park.
I had the feeling that the entire park and area was built within the last year or two as everything was new and clean.
