Discover Seoul Pass: Seoul Plus Edition
Korea’s wonders are not just found in Seoul. The charm of the country also rests on the capital’s neighboring cities, particularly in Gyeonggi-do and Incheon. If you’re planning to visit Korea anytime soon, know that you now have the option to visit and experience more attractions in the country, thanks to the recently released Discover Seoul Pass ‘Seoul Plus’ Edition.
If you’re not in the know, the Discover Seoul Pass is a product developed by the Seoul Tourism Organization to give foreigners a cheaper way to hop in and out of various Seoul attractions. With the purchase of a single pass, you get free and automatic admission to various sites in the capital. As of writing time, there are over 35 places you can visit with the Discover Seoul Pass, which includes prominent palaces, museums, Korean spas or jjimjilbang, and more. The passes come in three types: day pass, two-day pass, and the three-day pass, which easily complement your South Korea itinerary.
But the fun does not stop there. With the new Discover Seoul Pass ‘Seoul Plus’ Edition, you will now also get free and automatic admission to exciting sites like Gwangmyeong Cave, Everland, Korean Folk Village, and Incheon Songdo Central Park Ara Water Way. With ‘Seoul Plus’, you can now visit up to 55 attractions and get discounted admissions to 41 sites.
Here are some photos to give you a glimpse of some of the newly-added attractions:
Gwangmyeong or Gwangmyeongdonggul Cave
Gwangmyeong Cave in Gyeonggi-do is a very curious attraction. On the one hand, it guarantees visitors fun and excitement with installations like the Aqua World, Gold Falls, Gold Road, Gold Palace, Horror Experience, Cave Basement World, and Underground Lake. On the other hand, it’s also said to be ‘therapeutic’ given the several healing spots found inside. Whatever the intent and effect of this attraction may be, visiting a themed cave park is definitely considered one for the books these days, so you should definitely check Gwangmyeong Cave out when you buy the Discover Seoul Pass ‘Seoul Plus’ Edition.
To most fans of Korea (and K-dramas!), this attraction in Gyeonggi-do really needs no introduction. But if this is the first time that you’re encountering Everland Resort, know that this theme park is one of the hottest spots to visit in the country. With the Discover Seoul Pass ‘Seoul Plus’ Edition, you can now automatically experience Everland’s thrilling rides, zoo, festivals, and Instagrammable parks. Notable features include South Korea’s first wooden roller coaster (or the T-Express) and the expansive Zootopia, which houses over 2,000 animals!
Incheon Songdo Central Park
Songdo Central Park in Incheon is found in the middle of the bustling city of Incheon. This scenic space offers water-taxi rides for an authentic recreational activity in Korea.
