One definitely cannot say they’ve been to Korea until they have a picnic along Han River!! That’s right, the rite of passage to Korea is definitely eating Chimaek (치맥) while chilling on one of the many beautiful spots along the river. Besides nights of soju drinking and partying away, an afternoon spent along the Han River is one of the many things you can do in Seoul.
Ho Chi Minh city, formerly known as Saigon, is the largest city in Vietnam, is packed with culture and history, a city with loads to explore. It is a common travel destination for many, especially for those who are exploring South East Asia. Since it is only 2 hours away from Singapore, Ho Chi Minh is a great place for a short weekend getaway..
If you have yet to realize, I love visiting cafes! And Korea has the most amazing cafes ever, so many diverse concepts and visuals! I made sure to visit some of the cafes when I was in Gwangju. I planned to visit a lot of cafes, but due to change of plans, I only manage to visit a few! But nevertheless, they were amazing! I did my research and Dong Myeong Dong in Gwangju is well known for amazing cafes, I picked out a few and visited them!
I love staying in Airbnbs when travelling! I feel that they offer a more ‘homely’ vibe to your travel. Also, don’t you find that when you stay in hotels, the surroundings are too targeted towards tourists, so you don’t get a taste of how the locals live like! I love how there is an Airbnb that can suit anyone and everyone ㅡ you can live in a resort, a cabin or even just a local’s house! This was my experience when I stayed in an Airbnb in Bangkok for three nights.
Since this solo trip started in Gwangju, I knew I had to visit Jeonju Hanok Village this time around since it’s relatively near. Heading to Jeonju is relatively easy, just take a bus from U-Square Bus Terminal, the journey takes around 1hr plus, and the ticket is not expensive as well, only 9,600 won to be exact!
Today I’m bringing you guys to Boseong, Yulpo and Mokpo!! It was one of the happiest days during my solo trip there, I really had so much fun! Super thankful to Hyunjun who drove me everywhere, all the way to Mokpo to meet up with another friend! First stop for the day was Boseong: the place famous for their green tea fields! After that: Yulpo beach and Mokpo for BBQ!
Yes!! It’s going to be my last holiday before starting school mid-August. It’s also going to be my very first time in Bangkok, I’ll be there for 4D3N and I’m flying without a check-in luggage this time. I thought I’d do up a post talking about some of the travel essentials I usually bring along. Also, a very special preview of one of the projects I’ll be working on in Bangkok for the blog!
