So far I haven’t featured anything about Seoul south of the Han River, which runs through the South Korean capital. That’s why today, we explored Olympic Park and Lotte World, which are located south of the river.
Seoul hosted the 1988 Olympics. The Olympic Park was built to commemorate the quadrennial sporting event.
A gigantic thumb statue can be found in the park. I don’t know what it stands for, but a marker located close to the statue indicates The Thumb, 1988, Cesar, France.
Next stop was Lotte World, which features, among other things, a castle-like structure that reminds me of Disneyland.
Then we visited the Ttukseom Resort Han River Park, north of the Han River. We had some snow fun there.
