Because of a school holiday at Ewha, we were fortunate enough to visit Everland on a Monday which is supposedly a less crowded day.
Everland is situated at Gyeonggi-do, which is technically, a little out of Seoul.
To get there, take a subway to Gangnam Station on Line 2.
Exit via exit 10 and take bus no 5002 to reach Everland.
The bus ride takes approximately 50 mins and the bus-fare can be paid via T-money, all simple and sweet.
The Monday morning, thought notably less crowded, but was still filled-packed with elementary school children, who seemed to be out for a school outing. The 4 of us were seriously shoved and shuffled around by the horde of screaming children when we have not even entered the park . Not exactly something I enjoyed
Still, our spirits remained high and became even more excited once we entered the park.
Though I work at Universal Studios back in Singapore, aside for a few times, I have not really took the very thrilling rides.
Which was why, I was really worried about the roller-coasters, Vikings etc at Everland.
After all, I sort of chickened out at the Taiwan trip 3 years ago.
It doesn’t help too, that the first ride Bern suggested taking, once we entered the park, was Viking!
The Viking was seriously no joke.
I was trembling(partly in cold), while watching it from the sides.
The Viking looked as though it was about to fly out of its controls!!
At this time, I was having serious doubts about being able to take it~
But, peer pressure, as it is, managed to convince me to cast my fears aside.
Furthermore, I was getting really pumped up after all the anticipation about Everland.
I took it~And truly truly enjoyed it!
So much so that it gave me courage for all the rest of the thrilling rides at Everland.
Thank you my dear friends, for starting the day off with Viking! 😀
Basically, Everland is divided into five zones:
American Adventure, Magic Land, European Adventure, Zoo Topia and Roller Coasters,
I truly believe that a day is actually sufficient to finish the entire park,but the thing was that, the time we went,was still Spring.
As such, the cherry blossoms were still in full bloom
In addition, there was a really beautiful Tulips Festival going on during the time of our visit.
We were also lucky enough, to catch the parade that Everland has daily at certain times, just when we were headed to more rides after a quick lunch.Not to mention, there were also many beautiful structures and scenes around to explore and take photos of.

Therefore, girls being girls, we got so engrossed in taking photographs, so much so that we misjudged the time that we have for the entire park.
