Let me first tell you that the entrance fee for adults is 3000 Won. 3000 Won which is 2.24408809 Euro. That's right. Or 2.90100 USD. Holy cat that is cheap.
Secondly if you go on a lazy Sunday (and the day before Chuseok) there are noticeable fewer visitors; as in some paths were deserted and it was awesome.
Located close to Seoul Grand Park line 4 exit 2. ~Seoul Zoo official website in English
It's an incredibly beautiful park surrounded by mountains. There are many shaded picnic spots along the stream. You can bring a mat or buy one at the entrance of the park and lunch under the green lush. They have every kind of animal; fluffy, creepy, nocturnal, winged-ones, crawlers wet and slimy they are all present. Many of the birdcages you can actually enter and admire the birds up close. There is also a huge area secluded with a net were you can see big birds like pelicans up close. Honestly it's worth 10x the asked price, a big recommendation!
