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.
If you’re a university student like me, chances are you won’t be able to travel overseas during the cherry blossom period. You’ll probably be studying for finals or rushing your deadlines during that period. But once that’s over, you can go a short break and even though the cherry blossom season is over, I’m gonna show you 2 spots where you can see fields of flowers!
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!
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!
