20 Feb was the only day that we managed to wake up early to have the breakfast provided by Cats Hotel. The first day was due to us waking late and 2nd day was due to skiing, we had to leave the hotel before the breakfast was even ready.

According to agoda, this is a 5 star hotel. We saved the best hotel for the last on purpose. It was really convenient as it's in front of Myeongdong Station Exit 10 and a stone throw away from Myeongdong shopping streets. The room was very spacious, enough for us to lay all our luggage on the floor and still have more than enough walking space. Even though they provide us with a mobile phone, we didn't bring it out for use as we didn't need to make any local calls.
Without further ado, we set off to Everland!! How to get to Everland? We took a train from Myeongdong Station to Gangnam Station. We asked the train staff where to take bus 5002, he told us to head to exit 7. There are several bus stops along the stretch of road. The first bus stop does not have 5002. We walked on to the next one and still couldn't find. I asked a Korean lady if there's bus 5002 around, she searched on her mobile and pointed to us the direction towards the bus stop. There are actually bus stops in the 'middle' of the road and you'll be able to find bus 5002 in one of them after crossing the road halfway. Sadly I didn't take any picture as it was already noon and we were rushing to Everland.

|Everland Ticketing Booths|
|Only KRW 35,000 (SGD 42) as we only got there 10min before 2pm!|
|Remember to keep your tickets properly as you will need to present your tickets on every rides you take in the park!|
We were so excited when we got into the park!!! We had to fill up our stomach first as we didn't had lunch. Initially, we chose a Korean Restaurant, however the food doesn't seem appealing when we got in, so we switched to a Burger Restaurant.
|Very yummy steak burger!|
|Cajun Chicken Burger was good too!|
|Animals that we gonna spot today! They have LIGER!!|

Time to start queuing for the legendary T-Express!! Queuing time was 50min, as stated at the beginning of the queue. The first slope down, which is also the steepest, is 70 degrees down! Almost a vertical fall - shiok to the max! I'm a fan of roller coasters, so this steep fall excites me rather than scaring me off. There are multiple up-and-downs, you'll have no time to think of anything else besides enjoying the ride and screaming your lungs out! It is the best attraction in Everland I would say!
|Gonna be our turn next (like finally)!|
|Woohoo, I conquered T-Express!|
|Waffles for KRW 2500 (SGD 3)|
|I didn't dare to go in as I'm afraid of ghost. BF was laughing at me over having guts for taking T-Express but not this. Lol|
|Another Roller Coaster - Rolling X-Train, seems fun as it has a 360 degree turn|
|Churros!!! Korea's churros are yummylicious!|
Time for dinner! We just went to the nearest restaurant that we can find and settled down for our meal. It was a restaurant with very unique decorations.

|Good bye Everland, thank you for the happiness you brought us for the day. :)|
|Taking Bus 5002 back to Gangnam|
|As there were too many people, we couldn't board the first Bus 5002, so we waited for like 15min for the next bus in the freezing cold weather.|

Gangnam street feels like Orchard road in Singapore. Many chains of big brands can be found here. One of my friends requested me to help her buy masks from The Face Shop as it's more pricey in Singapore. I tried asking in Myeongdong, the staff told me that they don't sell piece by piece and I have to purchase a minimum of 30 pieces at one go if I want to buy their masks. However, in Gangnam, you can buy any amount of pieces you like. I got 20 pieces for her and X pieces for my family. The staff in Gangnam's Face Shop was very kind and quite fluent in English. I spent over SGD 100 in this shop alone. =x

Day 6 was our second last night in Seoul, we couldn't bear to leave this beautiful country with amiable people and mouthwatering food. One last post to go and I'll be done with my Korea blog posts. Have a great weekend people!
