This will be my fourth trip to South Korea, but this will be the first with my family. So, while preparing to plan for our trip (ahem, I’ll be their tour guide for this trip), I’ve decided to draw up the places all onto a list for a reference as I plan our day-to-day itinerary.
I’m sure many others will find it useful, so I’m putting it up here 🙂 You can download the list of places of attraction in Seoul here.
I’m also putting up maps for some of the places listed in the table.
First up, we have walking trail/ course suitable for half-day trip or a day trip.
1. Bukchon village
Don’t forget to snap photos of Bukchon 8 view while on its walking course.
2. Cheonggyecheon stream
It stretches from Cheonggye Plaza, near City Hall Station, to even beyond Dongdaemun area. Good for a stroll in the day, but there’s also beautiful laser show at night that you should catch!
3. Iwha Mural Village
Relatively unknown and not quite convenient to get to here, but worth going for instragram-worthy shorts with the murals as an arty-farty backdrop. Just take note that mural 6 and 9 are no longer in existence as both have been vandalised. These murals were painted over by local residents as they have been upset over disturbances by tourists. So, if you do visit this, remember to keep your voice down as this is a residential area.
Next will be Hangang Park, which has quite a few stretch.
The best place to check out the different places of attraction and facilities at Hangang Park is here.
The best way to explore is by cycling.
Finally, of course we have shopping districts!
And…. we have some cute ones from Korea Tourism Organisation.
Gwanghwamun square and Bukchon Hanok Village
Noryangjin Fish Market
Myeongdong shopping district and Namdaemun Market area
Namsan Seoul Tower/ N Seoul Tower
Can’t wait for my next trip to Korea!
