Yongma Land is an abandoned theme park in Seoul, South Korea. It went out of business in 2011, but much of the park remains intact. It is very easy to enter, a man at the entrance charges KRW10,000 (the equivalent of about $10USD). Unlike other urban exploration sites, this place is actually quite well known amongst the locals. The day I went there were at least 15 other people there. Koreans LOVE photo shoots. If you ever visit Korea, you will notice that they go all out for their photo shoots... costumes, props, tripod stands, everything, all for the ‘gram! There was a wide range of professional photographers with models, to groups of friends with their iPhones. It was super cool to explore. Although I do admit, having others around, plus not having to sneak in, made it lack the eeriness that other abandoned sites I’ve been to normally have. But it is still definitely an off-the-beaten-path thing to do in Seoul. This is actually the third abandoned amusement-type park I've been to, and I always find it interesting to see how nature and decay have affected these brightly colored, man-made, objects of fun, over time. There are quite a few rides and piles of other remnants to see. If you are into urban exploration or photography I would still highly recommend checking it out! Here are some of my favorite shots:
It's called Love Land. By the way, some of these photos are NSFW. Love Land is located on Jeju Island, an interesting little island just south of the mainland, which seems to have either a theme park or museum on the most obscure topics. Love Land is mainly a sculpture park. There are countless dirty sculptures, some in very impossible sex positions. It's a great way to spend a couple hours. Be sure to read the names of each of the pieces for even more of a laugh!
There were a few interactive crank toys like this one scattered throughout the parkNotice how the hills are boobs, and the penis in the background. This section of female dominance was a bit weird... "The Terminator" The little details around the park made it even more awesome. There is a whole exhibit of these little miniature sex scenes. All of them are super funny.
