Let’s discuss about Korea on this page! 한국 가고싶었어?
I was inspired by @Rock The Boat when asked about tips about Korea. I have been there and found many good places to shop, sightsee, and I don’t mind sharing experiences. ^^ I’ll probably update this page with How to watch Music Shows in Korea information once I compile my information.
Also, I would like to know more about Korea too! Share your experiences in Korea here too! Like what you did there, where did you shop and got good bargains, any place where you met celebrities? What was the best food you ate when you visited Korea?
Anyhow, let’s take it away!
For me, I went to Korea last Spring, 2009. It was a pretty awesome trip cos I went backpacking with my friends. There were cherry blossoms and all, and it’s seriously easy to go around the place. I like their subway.. because we can eat and drink inside I’ll just post some of the awesome places to visit in Korea:
★ Seoul ★
1) Myeongdong 명동
Fashion street yo. Lots of clothes, in their underground shopping mall to the outside area.
2) Dongdaemun 동대문
For cheaper grabs. They have like factory outlets there where you can get tons of Idol socks or Hanbok or caps/hats.
3) Lotte Shopping Mall
FOR THE CHEAP LOTTE BRAND FOOD CHOCOPIES!
4) Apgujeong 압구정
It’s like the Orchard Road of Singapore. Expensive branded shops.
1) NAMSAN TOWER! 남산
You can’t say that you’re been to Seoul if you didn’t visit this place. A beautiful place at night. It’s really famous, especially cos they filmed Boys Over Flowers there (When I was there I saw the Goo Junpyo and Geum Jandi’s first date writing on the cable car, like in the drama!) and lots of friends/couples go there to ‘lock’ their relationships forever. (i.e. Super Junior and SHINee left their locks there on variety shows, but I heard some fans cut them off? O_o)
2) Cheonggyecheon 청계천
The stream cutting through Seoul. Just walk along this stream to get to Dongdaemun or City Hall – it’s a nice place to hangout.
