The Zombie Run is perfect since you can actively participate in it, rather than simply just walk through a standard haunted house as people try and scare you. Choose from two different levels of difficulty, ‘normal’ and ‘hell’. If you’re feeling daring and fearless, go for the ‘hell’ package, which has more complex rules and scarier zombies.11813247_829724363802041_5633861595135009242_nYou’re dead once the zombies steal all 3 of your ‘life’ flags, so run as fast as you can and don’t look back. 14068203_1053289454778863_5548238847947211171_n.jpgFor all you party animals, the official after party is held at Club Made in Itaewon, so head on over afterward to dance till the sun comes up.

10 Reasons Why Seoul is an A+ Travel Destination for Families

Traveling with kids can be exhausting and challenging, but if you choose the right family-friendly destination, your family holiday will become a blast!

With that said, consider taking a family trip to Seoul, one of the most children-friendly cities in the world. Here are the reasons why.

1. Clean and Safe

CC0-photo-1931As one of the safest and cleanest cities, Seoul is a fabulous destination to travel with kids. It is relatively safe to take a walk and stay out late at night, and you can spot Korean police officers patrolling the streets very often.

Public restrooms are clean and they are usually built with a diaper changing station and seat protector that will make your life tremendously easier.

2. Foreigner & English-Friendly

-경부선-이정표-사진-CC0photoTraveling within the city of Seoul is very convenient as the signs are written in both Korean and English and many tourist information centers are installed all over the city.

Many of the stores and shops have either names or signs in English, so finding a way to your desired destination will not be a problem.

3. Super Convenient Public Transportation System

2617434347_e60b805251_o (1).pngWidely praised for remarkable public transportation system, subway, buses and trains in Seoul are fast, readily available and punctual. You can even track your bus or subway via transport apps in real time!

When the seats are full, take your kids to the ends of the subway car where the reserved seating for pregnant women, elderly and young children are.

Though it can be hectic when you take a subway in major stations like Hongdae, Gangnam and Myeongdong, otherwise, the public transportation system in Seoul makes traveling with your family very convenient.
