Fasten your seatbelt and prepare to dive headfirst into the heart and soul of Seoul.
Discover a picturesque two-story library within a bustling mall, boasting over 50,000 books, workspaces, and three charming coffee shops. Best of all, entry is completely free, welcoming all book lovers, learners, and daydreamers.
A quick pit stop awaits you, and though not an official attraction, it's a lively decoration right outside a shopping center, paying homage to the iconic hit song "Gangnam Style"!
At this point, you have the perfect opportunity to book your appointment for the next item on your agenda. And while you're here, why not take some time to explore the surroundings? South Korea is renowned for its virtual merchandising, so even if you aren't in the mood for shopping, the stores offer a fascinating setup worth experiencing!
Linked to the mall is 𖡡 Lotte World which consists of a large indoor theme park, an outdoor amusement park called "Magic Island" and an artificial island on a lake.
Among all the viewing towers I've visited around the world, this one easily tops my list of favorites! Surprisingly, we decided to visit on a Friday afternoon on a whim, and to our delight, there was no line. This spontaneous choice turned out to be one of the most memorable experiences during my time in Seoul! Without a doubt, I highly recommend adding this to your itinerary too. You won't be disappointed!
