Seoul Zoo - Taman Safari Indonesia

SEOUL ZOO - SOUTH KOREA Pass Namtaeryeong, the first gateway to Seoul from the south, and you will be greeted by Seoul Grand Park, a landmark recreational site with people and nature in perfect harmony. Seoul Grand Park is internationally renowned for its scenic beauty and natural environment consisting of the Education, Natural Culture, and Amusement areas.
During the period of the Great Han Empire, Japan turned time-honored Changgyeonggung, one of the royal palaces in Seoul, into a zoo, in 1909, in an attempt to undermine Korea’s national sovereignty. As part of its effort to restore national pride and preserve its cultural assets, the Korean government created Seoul Grand Park, which opened on May 1, 1984, and transferred the animals in Changgyeonggung to the park for the restoration of the palace. Today, Seoul Grand Park is one of the world’s top 10 zoos in size and scale.

Hongkong Macau Trip in May 2013 - Short Itinerary

Hello Guys,

I won't give any long story, but I will give you list my itinerary to Hongkong and Macau about 4 days 3 nights. If you want any further information about the itinerary , you can ask me. ^^

Day 1 (Kowloon)

- Early flight from Singapore to Hong Kong.
(For anyone of you if you go from Jakarta to Hongkong, then you will have several hours for transit time. If you buy tigerconnect, you are able to do the early check-in at transfer lounge E.)

- By the time I reached to Hongkong, I bought the Octopus Card (same function as Ez-link, and you can buy souvenir/ pay bills for food in some restaurants using Octopus Card) at airport. Then, I went to the hostel nearby Nathan Road by taking A21 bus. Actually if you want the cheaper accomodation, you can search it around Mongkok area, but you will have to spend more budget on your transportation. I chose City Econo Guest House, because you don't have to book it before, like I did (unless for the high season period).
