While planning to ‘visit’ the Rubber Duck, I needed to dig quite a bit before I found out where it was located. So here’s the short quick version (:
Where is the duck?
It’s currently living at Seokchon Lake (석촌호수) @ Songpa Naru Park (송파나루공원).
The park is opposite Lotte World, close to Avenue L and the newly opened Lotte World Mall.
How to get there?
It’s pretty simple (:
1. Take a train to Jamsil Station (Line 2)
2. Take Exit 2
3. Follow the crowd.
I’m serious! I was there on a weekend and we didn’t even have to ask for directions! Just followed the crowd to the lake and viola! Duckie! (:
But just in case (and luck is on your side) there’s no crowd for you to follow….
4. Turn left and walk straight. You will walk pass a bicycle place and walk under a temporary shelter.
5. Cross the traffic light (you will see the huge Lotte mascot on the opposite street on your right, constructions on your side of the street/left).
6. Turn left and keep walking straight. It feels like you are walking in a construction site but just turn (:
Visually…it looks like this –
Alternatively, you can walk through Avenue L and the newly opened Lotte World Mall (:
There’s a Rubber Duck Project Shop somewhere in the park too. Merchandise like rubber ducks (duh!), badge, post card and bath toys (4 ducks + a net) can be purchased there. Opened till 7pm (I think).
What else can you do there?
Lotte World Mall has an aquarium so you can check it out. Entrance fee is about 15 000 won. Pororo is also there!
There is also a Totoro/Spirited Away shop selling merchandises at B1 (:
AvenueL reminds me of Ion Orchard. LV was opposite Chanel on the first floor with Cartier tucked away in the corner.Waaay too familiar. Haha! It’s…atas. There’s even a
grand staircase GOLD staircase leading to the 2nd floor (and for you to take pictures with).
so yup! That’s about it! Good luck though. Ducky was so “jet lagged” on the first day that it “fell asleep” on the job. HAHAHAH!
