Saturday we took a trip to Seoul Racecourse Park which can be found on subway line 4 (just follow the punters to the right exit and main gate).
This seems to be a popular pass time for Koreans based on the number of people at the races on Saturday. The racecourse is pretty impressive too. You can stay on the grandstand side or cross to the middle of the track where there is betting booths and a cafe and activities for the kids.
There are several betting books available and to me they looked pretty confusing....
I gave my friend 10,000 won to place a bet just for fun... she chose #1 and #7 for the 2pm race and guess what.... she won.... 167,500 won! 2 races later we repeated the same formula and... she won again! not as much this time but still that is impressive for the first time at the track... maybe next time I will give her all my money :)
So here is a little footage of the races:
There is also a museum and a small art gallery to look at while you are waiting for the next race to start...
There was also an appearance from the aerobatic team (I later found out that there was another air show on that weekend...)
We also took a trip to Seoul Grand Park... but I will keep that for another day :) (when its cold and horrible) :)
Here is a short video though:
Well until next week have a fantastic time :)
