This zoo park is so large and spread out that a visit here is also a hiking trip. Walk straight ahead from the subway Exit 2 for five minutes to a large glass building. Here either walk for 15 minutes, take a tram train or turn right to catch the sky chairlift to the zoo entrance. Seoul’s best zoo is set among forested hillsides, and families picnic along the shady banks of a stream that runs through the park. It’s easy to spend all day here. The zoo is home to a long list of exotic creatures, including the ever-popular African ones. A huge aviary contains cranes, swans, pelicans and other large birds, and an indoor botanic garden houses a forest of cacti, numerous orchids and carnivorous pitcher plants. Ants and swimming beetles are on display in the insectarium. A very entertaining dolphin-and-seal show is held at 11.30am, 1.30pm, 3pm and 4.30pm in summer but only at 1.30pm and 3pm in winter.
