This weekend, I spent my day in Aiins world with my friends. Aiins world is an outdoor museum-style theme park. It’s located in in the city of Bucheon next to Seoul. There are about 12 zones and 109 of designed replicas of famous structures and UNESCO sites found around the world.
It’s quite promissing, isn’t it? Do you know what more exciting? The gift shop!! Yeah everywhere I go I always looking for a gift shop. What’s so exciting in the gift shop??? I’ll tell you later. 😀
So, this is the story how we got there. From Suwon, we had to take bus number 15 to Suwon station, and then subway line 1 to Songnae station. In Songnae we took bus number 5-2. Unfortunately we didn’t careful and we chose the wrong bus. The bus number was right, but the direction was not. So we had to transit and change the bus. As we arrived in Aiins world, we’re quite shocked. That’s not what we’d been expected. The place is so small and there were so few visitor in there. And it was not the best day to visit. It was showery almost all day. Since it’s outdoor, we had to use umbrella and sometimes we had to get wet in the rain to get a good pictures. 😀
Adult visitor have to buy KRW 8500 ticket and they’ll get a plastic bracelet that cannot be remove until they’re out of there. The exciting thing is there is 2 kinds of footprint in the ground. Blue footprint is for photografer and white footprint is for subject. So, visitor can take a picture easily. But not all of it provide the best shot.
There is one unique miniature : The Leaning Tower of Pisa. If you notice it, the miniature is moving. Sometimes it stands vertically, sometimes lean to one side.
And also there is one unique atraction : warships attraction. It comes with scenario where traditional Korean warships attack the enemy warships with a lot of weapons. And finaly one of the enemy’s warship is drowned and Korean get victory.
There is some weakness : visitor was prohibited to touch the miniatures. And some miniaturs was not being well maintenance.
After sight seeing and took a lot of narcist pictures, we went to the gift shop. There are a lot of puzzles there. Yayy!!! finally I got wood house making puzzles with music box included. I bought the small one, only KRW 16000. I also bought another plastic puzzles.
People say that the best view is in the night when light is on. But we’re too tired too wait (it was 4 pm). So, we decided to take dinner in Aiins’s restaurant and go home. To go back to Suwon we took bus 508 to Bupyeong station and then took subway to Suwon station.
