Korea Travelogue: Lotte World, DIY skincare course and Ice Gallery

We had fun at the 42nd most visited tourist attraction in the world 2014, Lotte World on day 7th. This theme park separated into 2 main sections, indoor and outdoor, with the indoor theme park being the world’s largest.  You can find rides in both sections. While I prefer Yongin Everland compared to Lotte World, the latter is less tiring to get around as its smaller.

Our hotel for the night was Grande Sheraton Walker Hill. Loved the spacious room, classy bathroom and large dressing table. Thumbs up!

Abalone, bean, pumpkin and seaweed porridge for breakfast.

Bumped into my uni friend from Australia at the (boring) ginseng shop. Both our tours groups (hers was another tour company) were at the same place, at the same time. Fancy that!

DIY Beauty course at DFS outlet; hubby’s dry skin could do with some pampering. As mentioned before in my one of my post, don’t wait until the guide brings you here before starting your skincare/cosmetic shopping. Because this DFS outlet is only well stocked for The Odbo products and poorly stocked for other brands.
