Ice Skating at Seoul Plaza.
Dig out your ice skates (because I’m sure you brought them with you), and start reviewing your triple sow cow technique, because this Holiday Adventure will have you gliding through the Seoul Plaza in style. Ok, let’s be honest, a lot of us won’t be so much gliding as wide-eyed and wobbling, but either way, this is one winter activity you just can’t miss.
The skating facilities have really improved this year–foreigners can now make reservations and pay online in advance. The rest areas and toilets have been expanded. Also, there will be more skating classes available this year, for those of us who spend more time on our bums than on our skates. For more information on class times, click here. If you’re not so much into skating as laughing at others fall hopelessly on their face, there will be a music booth and lounge to enjoy some wintry treats.
