Korea Trip (part 6)

Hi guys... Today I'll update on my Korea Trip. It was our 6th day in Seoul and we spent our time to go to Myeongdong, Lotte World, Star Avenue and Itaewon.

We start our day with Lotte World,

An introduction.. 

Lotte World is divided into a '’Adventure’ theme once you are inside the building, and outside is a ‘Magic Island’ theme next to Seokchonhosu Lake. Lotte World Adventure has certain districts representing different countries with various kinds of facilities and souvenir shops. You can enjoy watching parades, numerous films, laser shows, and a variety of international cuisines even during the holidays. Magic Island is situated outdoors, where the dazzling Magic Castle is located as well as thrilling high-altitude rides that you can't experience elsewhere. Be sure to also check out the peaceful walking trail around the lake.

We plan to go back to Seoul but not after we found a place called, Star Avenue. It is inside Lotte Department Store at basement. At first, we thought we have to buy the ticket to enter but when the promoter said that we don't have to pay because we already bought ticket to Lotte World, then it's free. It's like a Hollywood museum because the things inside it is a personal things of our favourite Korean star like Choi Ji Woo, Jang Geun Suk and Kim Hyun Jung.

After that, we went to Itaewon. The place which is famous for immigrants and so many foreigners there that we sometimes thought we are in other country not Korea. So the first place that we went is a Halal Restaurant, Murree Restaurant. We ate our late lunch there with starving stomach because we didn't eat any when we in Lotte World. Huhu..

The reason why we went to Itaewon is just that it is the place where the biggest mosque in Korea.

Introduction of the Mosque.

The Seoul Central Mosque opened in 1976 in ItaewonSeoul. It is located in Hannam-dong, Yongsan-gu. It holds lectures in EnglishArabic, and Korean. Friday (Jummah) prayers regularly attract up to 800 worshipers at 1pm, the majority of them being of ArabIndianPakistani or Turkish descent. As the only mosque in Seoul, it has become somewhat of a tourist attraction for Koreans to visit on weekends to hear talks given on Islam. The mosque has been subject to a handful of incidents, most notably when men armed with swords entered the mosque, which consequently required the police to protect the mosque for a number of months following the incident.

We spent our last hour in Myeongdong to buy some cosmetic and gift. And below pics is me and my favourite actor, Cha Seung Won or Dokkojin ahjussi (his role in 'Greatest Love' drama).

Will continue next time... Annyeong!!!
