There’s so many wonderful places to see in Korea. While Seoul is the one stop shop for most, you definitely can’t miss doing these activities while you’re here. Going out on the town at night is more entertaining when drinking soju in front of the convenience store. It’s cheap and they oftentimes have chairs and tables outside. Also, you can’t leave without eating Korean barbecue and eating loads of kimchi. No trip is complete without doing some major wallet damage at Myeongdong and eating all the delicious street food like tteokbokki and fish cakes on a stick.
The Land of the Morning Calm is so diverse in culture and getting knee deep by checking out the temples, doing a temple stay and learning about Buddha’s Birthday are incredible ways to spend your time. You can also wear hanbok and traverse the palaces. Many Koreans feel proud when visitors wear their traditional clothes so be prepared for a heap of compliments!
If you haven’t guessed already, Koreans love to drink coffee. Korea has a huge coffee drinking culture and you’ll be pleased to find quirky cafes with unique themes and animals. The coolest ones are dog, sheep, and meerkat cafes. I personally think the little meerkats are the cutest.
If you’re as excited about the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics as I am, then go for a stroll around Olympic Park where the 1988 Olympics took place. I wasn’t born at that time, but 30 years later, I’m glad to go see the oncoming winter games!
Last, but not least definitely don’t leave without singing your heart out at norebang and having a great time. Have you tried any of these things in Korea?
