This week, I teamed up with Mika in Korea and Arirang TV’s Wonder Seekers Team to check out the caves in Gwangmyeong, just a short trip outside the city of Seoul. The 광명동굴 (Gwangmyeong Caves) have a lot to offer, including a haunted zombie experience, an underground aquarium, so really neat art work, and a great escape from the Korean summer heat. It used to be an actual mining cave until it was shut down, but it got renovated recently into a nice tourist attraction.
My favorite part was the haunted house at the bottom of the caves. That video can be found here. The reason that part was great? I haven’t found many legitimately scary haunted house experiences outside of the States, and this one really made me jump. If you want a good scare, definitely check it out (but you do have to pay a little bit of extra money once you’re down inside the cave.
If you have the chance, make sure it pay this place a visit. It’s another one of the gems of Korea that many people leave off their list of places-to-visit, and it’s sure to give you that “different side of Korea” you’re looking for.
Thank you to Arirang TV for helping us make it happen. The show we’re on is Arirang’s show called “Globetrotters”, and the segment is called “Wonder Seekers” (Friday’s 10:30am KST)
They’ve been the best!
