In Seoul and smaller towns many places will be closed as Koreans opt to spend the time at home with their families. Some attractions remain open though and it's a great time to visit them because they will most likely be quieter than usual. One such place is Everland. Currently they have a Halloween theme which is actually one of my favourite times to visit the park. Definitely beats the 'Rose Festival' theme!

This was the day after Chuseok and although busy, it wasn't as busy as it looks in this photo.

Within Everland there are also numerous souvenir stores and dining options. They have a lot of fast food outlets, some Korean dining options and a few places serving things like pasta and pizza. There is also a 'Weeny Beeny' candy store when you first enter the park so you can get your sugar fix for the day.
