SOUTH KOREA | WHAT TO DO IN SEOUL?


Seoul is one of those cities where tall skyscrapers merge with ten-lane roads while cultural markets line the city around the Han River. As intense as this city is in South Korea, it is also so modest. If you have been to Seoul before, you would agree that this city can be known as calm Tokyo.



Seoul is rich in contradictions, past pains and buyers, lots and lots of buyers. You will also come across devout Christians on the bus who go to pray in some of the largest churches in the world. Deeply religious, South Korea has been greatly influenced by the American military presence, the tension of having North Korea as a neighbor, the legacy of the horrific Japanese occupation and a mad dash toward extraordinary prosperity over the past 30 years.



Vivid, spontaneous and really energetic, people in Korea know how to have fun and then feel guilty. It is no coincidence that Koreans are known among Asians as "the Italians of Asia."



This city is an eclectic mix of the weird and wonderful, and while there are enough skyscrapers, there are just as many cultural narratives in Seoul.

We were coming from the hot and stuffy Philippines and found Korea with great weather and an impressive look and organization. The whole country is the size of Santa Catarina and has companies that have conquered the world, a powerhouse!



Here are some tips on what you can do in Seoul:


1. CHANGDEOKGUNG SECRET GARDEN

2. NAMSANGOL HANOK VILLAGE

3. GWANGJANG MARKET

4. GYEONBOKGUNG PALACE

6. SEONYUDO PARK

7. GUDEURAE PARK

8. HANEUL SKY PARK

9. GWANGMYEONG (WE LOVE THIS CAVE) see below

10. BORINARA HAGWON FARM



Gwangmyeong Caves is the largest themed cave park with varied cultural and artistic things, created in a gold mine, where gold, silver and bronze were extracted. Visitors can try wine in the wine cave, in addition to Cave Aqua World, Gold Falls, Gold Road, Gold Palace, Terror Experience, Cave Underground Lake, Underground Lake, the nation's largest dragon sculpture, LED lights and other installations adding more fun for the visit. Additionally, the Black Light Performance is held every weekend. We were stuck with how cool they made something that was just a big hole in the ground.
