Korea Travelogue; Seoul Day 3

Hello! :)
So sorry for the lack of updates, I'm now pretty packed up with all my project submissions and deadlines, but no worries, today I'm back with a super duper long post. As seen from the title, YES! It's my Korea Travelogue, Day 3! Hahaha!

For this Travelogue I would need to wait for Andy to update his before me so that I can refer and make sure I get all my information correct. Hahaha! This explains why I'm always posting after him.

So anyways, back to topic. We had Isaac Toast for our breakfast as usual (I LOVE LOVE LOVE THEIR HOT CHICKEN TOAST).

Took the train from Myeong Dong station to Jamsil station. Idk about the directions though, cuz I rely everything on Andy. If he got lost, then so am I. Hahah!

In the midst of switching trains, I came across this poster ads which is advertising for plastic surgery, and I immediately told Andy. I'LL BE BACK HERE FOR THIS!!! Hahaha!

Reached Jamsil station and we followed this pathway to Lotte World, but before that you will come across these ticketing machines for the entry to Lotte World.

Kinda forgot how much each ticket cost already. For a more descriptive and informative post, you can visit Andy's blog where it's more detailed. I'll be putting down the link for his post at the end of this post. :)

OHYAH! If you're afraid of getting lost and not knowing the route to Lotte World, no worries cuz there are signages that will lead you there.

They do also sell entry tickets to Lotte World just right outside of the entrance, but to avoid queuing up, we bought it from the ticketing machines luh...

And look, Andy just went on ahead without me :(((

When I first went in, I was taken away by the awesome view! Okay la, maybe I'm exaggerating a bit but its somewhere near okayyy! Furthermore, I've never been to any theme park besides Escape Theme Park and Universal Studios Singapore. So yeap! This marks another tick on my theme park to go list. Hahaha!

As mentioned previously, we spend the entire day at Lotte World, we tried the indoor rides first then we headed out to the outdoor ones. In my opinion, I felt that the outdoor rides are more thrilling as compared to the indoor ones. But nevertheless, I've enjoyed myself over at Lotte World. Hahah!

A P6101074_副本

At Lotte World, they not only have rides but also exhibition?? If you call it that way, for people to enjoy. For instance, the above photo, they have insects and animal zone for visitors to see.

At Lotte World, they also sell snacks as well! When I came out of the washroom and saw Andy having this chicken like thingy and with a drink! I thought it was quite interesting (and it taste quite delicious also), so I thought why not I buy one myself. Hahaha!

A P6101114_副本

At some point of time, they will have this parade thingy where all the performers will come out and go round Lotte World (indoor), and dance. Super fun and happening, like everything is just so happy! Hahaha!

After much exploring the indoor theme park, its time we head to the "otherside" of Lotte World! The outdoor themepark!!!

A P6101137_副本
A P6101135_副本

First look and it's so magical! Everything is just soooo...... I don't know how to describe other than magical!!! LOLOLOL!!!

First ride we took was the Bun Gee Drop! This decision was kinda impromptu and I had no mental preparation for this! Andy was like just, lets take this, want to take this? And I just went, ORH OKAY! WTHELL WAS I THINKING BACK THEN?!!!! Lololol!!!

A P6101141_副本

There was a lot of impromptu decision while deciding whether to take the outdoor rides, like there was this 1 ride which both of us didn't know what was it and we just went right in. Later did we know that it's a 360 degree roller coaster ride!!! As in, the seats will rotate 360 degrees luhh! And it goes like super duper fast! Like lighting speed fast!!! Hahah! It was quite an experience though! #YOLO!!!

So after that ride, I felt rather giddy, so I bought myself a Mocha drink to cool myself down!

A P6101147_副本
A P6101152_副本

Andy cooling himself down with the air cooler???? It's really cooling leh!! Like literally having water blasting at you!!! Hahaha!

A P6101148_副本

We saw this ride and deliberate for a very long time whether should we take it or not? Cuz it looks kinda scary!!! Hahahah! In the end we did not take it as it started to drizzle/rain at that point of time...

A P6101155_副本

So we went back to the indoor themepark and we thought, why not settle our lunch first before we continue with the rides. We walked around hunting for food, and we end up having fast food at a fast food restaurant called Ogre's Factory".

A P6101170_副本

After we had our lunch, it was still raining outside, so we figure why not we finish the indoor rides first before going to the outdoor ones. So first stop, the site seeing hot air balloon!

Th queue for this was quite long though, waited for around 15-30mins for it.

Apart from being super duper uneasy and hot from taking the hot hair balloon ride, you get to see the whole of Lotte World!! Indoor of course! Hahaha!

A P6101186_副本

So after our balloon ride, we walked around and saw this place where they had displays of artifacts similar to trickeye museum, but smaller! In a sense that, there's lesser displays la! More of like "sample", I guess???!

A P6101197_副本

So after that, we head outside again, and guess what? We decided to take the ride that we previously didn't! Hahaha!

A P6101200_副本

And the reason why we didn't dare take this ride at first.... Its because it goes super duper fast! What's more its open space!!! But oh wells, what's the worst that could happen? Right???!!!

A IMG_1300_副本

We took quite a while to queue for that ride too, and after we're done with it, the sun is already setting down. So we went back to the indoor themepark and took some other rides. At that point of time I was already tired and I didn't take out my camera to snap any pictures.

At Lotte World, they have this group of performers where they will perform different various of KPOP Songs on the stage! They have different timings for each shows, but I highly recommend you to watch the one at night cuz it's so much nicer with all the lighting and such!!

A P6101201_副本

Last ride for the day is the carousal! Beautifully lit up and many people were there taking lovey dovey pictures! Hahaha! Sadly, I'm with Andy there. Oh wells!!!

A P6101211_副本

That's how we spend our entire day at Lotte World! Definitely an experience! I would definitely bring my friends back here next time. After we left Lotte World, we had a little snack at Krispy Kreme, and back to Myeong Dong thereafter.

A P6101216_副本

When we reached back at Myeong Dong, it was quite late already, and shops were all starting to close, thus IT WAS RAINING!!! And I didn't bring any umbrella that day!!! Talk about being super "suay"!!!

We had fried chicken somewhere nearby our hostel for dinner/supperzz and its damn awesome!!! Rainy days, with hot crispy fried chicken! What's there to complain?!!!
