Today we tried to fit in some of the things from our TODO list we hadn’t yet. First up, Dragon Hill Spa! We wanted to check out a spa and this one is known to be friendly to tourists, and also had some game areas so we could do Noraebang.
When you first arrive, you check in at the desk and they give you a bracelet and a set of clothes (shirt and shorts) , this is tied to your account. You go put your shoes in a locker and then walk up to your gender based floor. There you shower, put your clothes and decide what you want to do. You can go eat at a few places, sit and watch tv, go to the movie room, go play games, go to several saunas, there are theme rooms, like a salt room, coal room, where you lay down and relax on mats. There is a massage area where you can purchase massages which were very affordable. Their pool was under maintenance so we couldn’t do that. We got massages, relaxed in the rooms fora while, did norabang, then went and had lunch. It was a nice relaxing few hours
After the SPA, we headed to Seongsu-dong and went to the Tiger Wall from the NCT 127 Regular music video. The neighborhood is really cool, it was a leather business district, so there are still shops selling those things, and inside the Subway there is a mini museum of the garmet business of the area. After the tiger wall (photo ops!) we walked over to Cafe Onion, which is a really trendy cafe in a rustic bare walls aestetic. I got a dragonfruit-ade, everything we tried was so yummy!
After all this, we were like ‘Hey what now?, how about an amusement park?’ So … we took the subway back over to Lotte World and went to the Amuseument park there. Dree purchased tickets online and it was a pain to find the entrance to redeem them at. Anyway, we have seen Kpop idols and actors on shows go to Lotte World so it seemed like a good idea to go visit. It’s kind of mandatory to get headbands, so that is what we did. Then we went around and got our bearings and rode some of the rides. I liked the virtual reality rides the best. Atlantis was so scary!!!
We rode this hot air balloon ride, that went around the interior of the Lotte world and I took a picture of the couple in front of us (and we rode with them) because they were so pretty/handsome and were cute together.
Once we got home, we were ready to start packing and but also needed some food, guess what our last meal was. 🤦♀️Delivery pizza. We had such a good experience with the previous pizza we had, we decided to try it from a chain (Pizza Hut) . Then while they were making it, we were able to dart into the beauty supply and market and get our last items we needed for our departure. it had potatoes on it. It was good, not as good as the one at COEX, but it taste completely different from the pizza in the US.
