Looking for places to drift this summer? Categorically, beaches and pools are of course the best places to delve into. While those sandy areas and calming sea water are needed to be traveled for hours or so, public swimming pools on the other hand can be checked in easily in Seoul.
With that moot point, I have listed down outdoor pools, indoor swimming pools and water theme parks for you to choose and try. I had been to mostly of these cool places and definitely had a good time.
- Han River Side Swimming Pools
Open for general public and entrance fee costs 5,000won-8,000won for a day. Opens from 9:00am to 7:00pm usually. Note that proper swimming attire is highly observe and swimming cap is a MUST!
2. Woongjin Playdoci: Water and Snow Park
An indoor water and snow park located in Bucheon. I enjoyed this place last winter and you’ll definitely like it this summer. A huge water theme park to play around with indoor and outdoor pool, spa and sauna, slides and more. It’s a bit costly though, but no worries…. check this link, book directly from my website and it will just cost you 10 bucks.
3. Potto Pop Corn House Pension and Pool. Best for overnight stay as reservation includes pension house. A nice play to unwind in countryside. Located near Cheongpyeong Station, the way to Gapyeong. Reservation is needed to this site.
