Everland Korea blog: First, the location?
Everland Park is located on the outskirts of Seoul, in Gyeonggi-do Province, about 60km from central Seoul.
Weekdays from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm. However, there will be special days. To be sure, you can check here before you go!
If you buy at the gate, it’s 56.000 KRW (~47.8 USD)/ticket/adult. And 44.000 KWR (~(37 USD)/ticket/children. The night ticket for 46.000 KRW/adult and 37.000 KRW/children.
A piece of sincere advice is that you should buy tickets online first. Or you will have to wait in line for a long time before you can get your ticket. You can buy tickets directly on Everland’s website or through travel agencies like Klook or KKDay. Travel agencies will offer more promotions. After booking and payment, you will receive a voucher via email with a QR code attached. You only need to print and scan this code at the entrance. There is no need to exchange for a paper ticket.
Everland Seoul blog: How to get to Everland Park?
Now there are many means of transport that you can take to get here. You can choose the following bus or subway:
From Seoul you can take the bus No. 5002 at Gangnam station, Exit 10 (First bus: 06:20am/last bus: 11:00pm) or No. 5700 at Jamsil station, Exit 6 (First bus: 06:30am / last bus: 11:55pm). It only costs you about 2,500 won / 1 way to get straight to Everland park. Travelling by bus will save you a lot of time because it only takes 50-60 minutes. However, this route is usually quite busy so you might have to stand all the way.
I personally think this is the most convenient way if you are not pressed for time. If you go from Myeong-dong, you will get off at Jeondae Station – Everland, it will take about 2 hours. Right there will be a FREE Shuttle Bus that will take you to Everland Park. If you pay by T-money, you only need to spend about 3,500 won for this trip!
Everland Korea blog: Next, what activities should I do?
I can assure you that once you have entered Everland Park, there are more activities you will be able to do even when you stay from morning till evening. Everland is enormous. Only taking photos will take half a day =)) To help you not to get lost, here are a few things you need to know.
Everland’s campus is divided into five main theme zones including:
Located at the entrance to Everland Park. This is the place where you can find cuisines, souvenirs, and beautiful architectures from many countries from around the world. There are also other special services such as baby stroller rental, locker rental etc., which will make it more convenient for you as you are exploring Everland.
The name says it all. This is the zoo of Everland Park. From wild animals in Safari World to peaceful herbivores in Herbivore Safari, all are fully assembled into a lively forest. Here you will tour around by car, so you will have the opportunity to have direct contact with many rare animals. Or take a boat across the wild jungle, floating on the man-made river 580m but the feeling can’t be more real with Amazon Express. What I like most in this zone is Panda World. It was the first time I’ve seen real lovely pandas.
