Seoul is a huge city with many things to do. It’s certainly an impressive city, with towering skyscrapers, modern architecture and lots of shopping possibilities. In this guide, we’re going to share with you tips to exploring Seoul, the best specific areas, activities you can do, and hopefully, it can help you to plan your daily itinerary in Seoul.
One of the best spot to enjoy the autumn foliage in Seoul is Ewha Womans University, a prestigious university for female students. The area around the university is full of budget friendly street food, cafes, restaurants, shops, and stores with beautiful trees lined on the street.
Besides food and shopping scene, local culture is also an interesting attraction in Seoul. Surrounded by Gyeongbokgung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace, and Jongmyo Shrine, Bukchon Hanok Village (북촌한옥마을) is home to hundreds of Hanok or Korean traditional houses, that date back to the Joseon Dynasty. During our #FooInLoveKOREA trip, we visited Bukchon Hanok Village after strolling around Gyeongbokgung Palace and have a lunch at Tosokchon Samgyetang.
When you go abroad, make sure you try some local foods of the country. Samgyetang (삼계탕) or Ginseng Chicken Soup is one of the national foods of Korea and many tourists love to eat it! In this post, we will take you to Tosokchon Samgyetang, the most famous samgyetang restaurants in Seoul! Roh Moo-hyun, the president of South Korea from 2003 to 2008, frequently visits Tosokchon. His visits have made the restaurant even more popular.
Other than cosmetics or shopping, Korea is also well known for their fried chicken! To Koreans, chicken is one of the most popular foods to have late at night. This is probably quite evident as you can find all sorts of fried chicken chains on every corner of the street. During our #FoodInLoveKOREA trip, we paid a visit to the BHC Chicken outlet in Myeongdong and Dongdaemun.
For beauty, there is Innisfree. For tea, there is Osulloc Tea. These are just some of the other things that Jeju Island is famous for, other than its beautiful sceneries and ecological treasures. The Osulloc brand has much developed and modernized, being one of the major tea exporters from Korea, known for using technology for planting, producing, and packaging.
When you think of traveling to South Korea, Nami Island always on the top of the list of places that must be visited. Nami Island is one of the best places to visit if you want to see the gorgeous and beautiful autumn foliage. This is our most favorite place and the most memorable moment during our #FoodInLoveKOREA trip last autumn. In this post, we’ll be providing you with details on what you can do and how to get to Nami Island from Seoul.
