The subway system in Seoul is one of the most amazing things I’ve experienced in life. Living in a city with only six public train lines you can imagine my surprise at their fourteen public train lines, not to mention a stop at every attraction you can think. Getting around the city is no biggie. Plus their T-money can be used in convenient stores as well.
2. Myeongdong shopping district
A perfect tourist spot for anyone. Bright lights, kpop music, all the Korean makeup brands you can imagine. Not to mention, the vendors are really friendly and speaks different languages.
Korea has the fastest internet in the world. Their public wifi is no joke. Most of their shops have free wifi, no trouble getting around. I didn’t even have to turn on my roaming once.
4. Hongdae Shopping district
The nightlife. The young crowd. The hip life you wished you had back home. This is Hongdae.
5. Nami Island.
About an hour away from Seoul, it’s a picturesque spot that is Kdrama worthy. Perfect at any level from the view right down to the awesome activities. It’s no wonder it’s one of the
6. Street Fashion and Shopping
Since I went to Korea during their winter season their street fashion was top notch. Coats, boots, beanies and scarves roamed around the place. Though I don’t suggest shopping in the street vendors since they mostly sell their products at a higher price for tourist. Shopping malls like D-cube city are probably a better bet for you, sales are not to be missed.
Looking for a good dinner place without hurting your pocket too much? Look no more, Itaewon has plenty of restaurants that are Instagram worthy.
Don’t go out of Seoul without trying their streetfood. Seriously, don’t. I suggest trying out “Manjoo Hana” it’s bread filled with sweet custard! Literally ate it all the time I saw a shop in Seoul.
Everything that screams high-end and luxury is what I could say about this place. The Shinesgate Mall in Gangnam is a girl’s dream. Every brand that I have wanted (and could not afford) was there. Be careful of your wallets though, you might spend more than you think you can.
Plenty of attractions in Seoul: from DDP, to N-Seoul Tower, to Trickery Eye Museum. You can’t go wrong with the place. It’s impossible to make a mistake in this city. Everywhere you turn is another adventure.
