Seoul Zoo

The zoo is but one attraction in the Seoul Grand Park, which is actually outside of Seoul in a place called Gwacheon, there is also a forest bathing area, a hobby museum, museum of contemporary art, rose garden, botanical gardens and a roller coaster theme park to name a few.
Throughout many of the photos below you can see some big mountains nearby, I am planning to climb the biggest one tomorrow, weather and toes permitting.

Before I got to the zoo, I was amazed that the normally clogged streets around my hotel were completely abandoned apart from rubbish blowing around and a few zombies. I feared this may be the case all day however when I came back in the afternoon they were more clogged than ever. It seems everywhere is just opening late for the national holiday.
Unfortunately, this included starbucks and all other coffee places, and once I got to the zoo there was no coffee. Given the density of coffee shops throughout the city I found this weird, there was a kfc, lots of Korean saussage on a stick places, 10 family marts etc. But none had real coffee, just the stuff in a tin. I had one of those but it still took me a while to wake up. I think I have a problem....

The zoo itself was great, admission was $3 (more than Taiwan), and it is huge. They dont have any pandas and there is a focus on big cats. The few Koreans that were there at this time have no problems banging on the glass and clapping their hands to try and annoy the animals, I saw a kid lob a rock at a monkey and his parents didnt seem to mind.
Getting here at 9AM had its pros and cons, there were very few people about (as I was leaving the stream of people coming in was mind boggling), but also some exhibits were still shut as I walked past.

All in all I rate this the second best zoo I have been to, Taipei > Seoul > Singapore > Tokyo.

Kraze burger! Korean up market burger chain. Expensive meal cost $8 for the 2 burgers and a drink. Its all made fresh, takes about 15 minutes, they have signs advising you of that, and the chef put some real effort into making them.
I must admit, it was pretty nice. The photo makes them look huge but they were quite small. You can get 1 regular size burger or 2 small ones for the same price.
There are also signs in English everywhere explaining how healthy their burgers are...I dont know about that. Not sure when bread, cheese and bacon became healthy.

Last pic for the day, doing my washing. All praise a hotel with excellent free wifi and a laundry room with a big screen tv and vending machine.
Also, the detergent cost 50 cents, the washing machine cost $1 and the dryer cost 50 cents. So all up, $2. In London I paid 9 pounds to sit on the cold floor and fight with people to get a machine.


Taking it easy

For two reasons, I didnt do much tonight.
1. I plan to climb a mountain tomorrow, researching is confusing, some people say its a near death experience and they turned around less than half way up. Others say its ridiculously easy and only takes 3 hours for a round trip.
2. Lots of stuff is shut for Chuseok, including most restaurants. The places that are open are mainly chain stores. All the little market stalls are closed. The place I wanted to have dinner is closed, yet theres literally a million people wandering around outside looking for something to do.

As I had 2 hamburgers for lunch, dinner was from smoothie king. I have no idea where this brand originates from, but they have lots of giant stores. The menu is very healthy, with a big smoothie not even having 200 calories.
It cant be a direct copy of a USA menu if it is a USA chain, as my smoothie contained soy protein, fructose syrup and ginseng, along with strawberries, bananas and low fat yoghurt, and that wrap thing had kim chi in it.
Update - it is a USA franchise.

Day 11 - Tuesday, 13 Semptember 2011

Gwanaksan

Today I climbed over the mountain that seperates Seoul from Gwacheon called Gwanaksan, it was fantastic.
The internet doesnt have too much information on the best route to take, and is full of conflicting information that climbing it is either easy, or death defying.
I had my route planned the best I could, and got on the train after drinking a huge coffee and a gallon of water.
For the trip I planned to take a large bottle of Pocari Sweat and 2 museli bars, as I have no backpack.
At this time of the morning on a holiday, the train was pretty much full of people in full on mountaineering gear. All their shoes were 'K2' brand, they all had huge back packs, ropes, gps, poles etc.
The internet did mention this as being complete overkill, so I wasnt too concerned.
My plans were changed when the station before where I planned to get off, everyone with mountain gear got off...so I followed.

Turns out these guys were serious mountaineers taking the longest most difficult route, I didnt know this at the time, and I am glad I followed them.
Its a bit of a hike to the start of the trail, with the streets lined with shops and carts selling more mountain climbing gear. Most of the climbers were sucking on gel packs like tour de france riders eat during the race.

The climb to the top took 2.5 hours, when I say top, I believe I climbed over 3 peaks to get to the main peak, had I have gone to the station I planned I would have gone straight to the top of the main peak, but then I would have missed all the rope lines and pulling myself up chains whilst carrying my drink bottle!

There is actually a cable car that gets very near the top with a proper walkway to it, so on the top there were a few USA soldiers in their 'going out' clothes, but other than that I didnt see another westerner.

Unlike the rest of my holiday, quite a few Koreans chatted to me in good English, most saying its surprising to see a westerner out on the trail, most just take the cable car and have an ice cream.

At the bottom there were lots of older people, still in lots of gear, but after a few hundred metres they were stopping for a rest and tea etc. So I was thinking how hard can this be.
Turns out they dont go past the first rocky area, theres trails around the bottom of the mountain they stick to.

I also saw signs warning about taking children up this route, and info on what gear to have, but I assumed that meant for winter, I still dont really know.

My fitness levels surprised me, I passed lots of people and never really felt the need to stop, I was mainly stopping to take photos.
The few tricky sections where you could easily plummet to your death required all my concentration, especially since I didnt want to lose my drink bottle.

The walk down the other side was far easier and shorter in comparison, being mostly steps and a few boardwalks with buddhist temples every now and then.

All up it took me right on 4 hours to go up, over 3 peaks, and down the other side. Once down, I had no idea how to get to the station, so that took another hour, I went completely the wrong way!

I dont seem overly exhausted now, I want to go again!

Because I took so many photos, I havent put them all here, if you want to see lots more - go here.

Hongdae

The hipster district for university students with fixies, black rimmed glasses, acoustic guitars and retro grandpa hats is called Hongdae, which is around a big university.
The place is full of cheap restaurants that allow smoking on the inside that sell even cheaper beer, love hotels, starcraft cafes.

I chose one such restaurant that seemed to be authentically Korean, full of students smoking. I ordered one thing, and got something completely different.....

Now, I ordered from the part of the menu that wasnt a hot pot, and I ordered some sort of chicken, grilled in a chilli looking sauce, with various interesting vegetables, I pointed at the picture, there was no mistake!
I think my waitress decided I cant have that cause im not Korean, so I got some battered deep fried chicken, on some lettuce, with wait for it, a scoop of ice cream on the lettuce.
Is it common for americans to eat ice cream with their fried chicken? I can only assume the waitress thought I was american and can only eat fried chicken, lettuce and ice cream.

Day 12 - Wednesday, 14 Semptember 2011

Insadong

Today I had to do shopping for various demanding people who expect shirts that say I heart korea, souvenir pickled dog meat, photos of Kim Jong Il looking at things etc.

I actually first intended to go to the national museum in the morning, but it was shut today, instead of Monday, which is a little bit confusing.

First I went to the Shinsegae department store, mainly to check out their fresh food basement, which was very impressive.

Next up I headed to Insadong, which is where many antique shops and art gallerys are. Lots of I heart korea tshirts are made in china and actually say made in china on the label. I dont know why they dont just pay the chinese to print made in korea like we make them print made in Australia.

I also managed to get a real Korean lunch here.
It probably seems as though I didnt do much, but I left at 8, and im only back at the hotel at 3:30.

Nearby Yongsan park, I read on wikipedia that the US Army owned the area where both the park and the museum are. They gave the area back to Korea on the condition it kept its football field. It did for a while but then Korea built the Museum on it. America got angry.

Walk until lost

This evening I did one of my favourite activities. Pick a direction and walk that way, until you are completely lost.
The path took me back through Dongdaemun, via a street full of mainly stores selling ladders and pipes.
I then came across a wet market, where I had one last attempt at catching bird flu.
In a shopping area near a university I was approached by a girl to answer some questions about Hyundai, her friend video taped it, I put my hands in my pockets in case it was an elaborate scam to steal from me even though thats unheard of in South Korea.
It seems it was the girls job application for when she graduates, at the end I had to was given something to read on a clipboard, and I realised on the back it said 'I LOVE HYUNDAI!', so if I turn up in an ad I am going to sue.

I also managed to find real Korean food for dinner, so thats 2 proper Korean meals in a day, Korean food is nowhere near as good as Taiwanese food, its much more like Japanese food, largely flavourless.

I had planned to take the bullet train to Busan at some point, tomorrow is my last full day here, the 3 day holiday has stopped that from happening.
Even tomorrow getting back from Busan on the bullet train seems impossible, I couldnt book online and at the station there was some mention of standing room, or the slower 5 hour train back.
Given that the train is 2.5 hours in each direction already, I think I will give it a miss.
Thats OK, I still have lots of things to do in and around Seoul, so much that I could easily stay another week.

Not many pictures tonight sorry!
