Seoul Guide

Updated: July 18, 2017 (added: more “things to do” and “places to eat.”)

The first time we went to Seoul, we were only there for two short stopovers, going to/from Hong Kong. This year, we were able to spend a longer time in Seoul, since it wasn’t too far away from Japan. Traveling overseas involves such a longgg flight! Why not make the most out of it by going to a neighboring country (or few)? That’s if time permits.

During our first visit in Spring 2015, we felt completely overwhelmed because we didn’t know where to go and how to get to our destinations. Google Maps wasn’t (and still isn’t) widely used over there, so it only helped at times when we needed to get between two major tourist destinations. It doesn’t calculate the time it’ll take on foot or by car, but it may sometimes show you one for public transportation, if there’s a route. Daum and Naver Maps were the most commonly used, but it was only in Korean! What help was that to us? None, because I can’t read Hangul lol.

Below you can find a few tips and some of the places we went to, that I thought was worth mentioning. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, you can leave a comment at the end of the post 🙂
