5 Day Trips from Seoul

Korea is a rather small country. In fact, it’s possible to travel from Seoul in the north to Busan on the southern coast in a matter of a few hours by KTX, the nation’s high speed train. So technically, any city could possibly be classified a day trip. However, there are a few destinations located particularly close to the capital and are all accessible by Seoul’s efficient and affordable subway, making them the perfect day trips to get a feel for life outside the big city. Check them out! (READ MORE)




Korea’s Best Grocery Delivery Websites

Seoul is, without a doubt, one of the most convenient places to live in the world. It’s a 24 hour city, with businesses remaining open until the wee hours of the morning. It boasts an incredibly efficient and affordable transportation system. And you can get just about anything delivered to your house. Including groceries. Which is particularly handy when you live in the hilltops of Gyeongnidan like myself. Here is a list of helpful websites to use when you don’t feel like hauling around heavy bags of veggies or fighting ajumma in chaotic supermarkets. (READ MORE)

漫步北村韓屋村(북촌한옥마을)

在首爾只有血拼的緊湊行程嗎?還是不知道要去哪邊走走呢? 如果想要悠閒的時光,介紹一個漫步首爾的好地方:北村韓屋村。 北村是之前朝鮮時代開始貴族居住的地方,它位於景福宮跟昌德宮之間,保留許多美麗的韓屋而有名。 沿著坡需要慢慢走,也有許多小巷弄可以探索。 我很早之前排行程的時候就把北村排進去,但計畫總是趕不上變化,沒有一次去成。 好不容易在2013年我獨自一人在首爾流浪,終於拜訪了這個美麗的地方。 正式參觀北村韓屋村之前,建議大家先去北村文化中心。北村文化中心有些北村的介紹,還有地圖可以拿,可以先在後面的亭子研究一下路線圖。 此外,也可以到北村遊客諮詢中心租借語音導覽,讓你的漫步北村之旅更有意義。 租借的方式很簡單,只要跟服務人員說要租語音導覽,用護照抵押即可。 租好語音導覽之後,就可以開始漫步北村囉!出發~Go Go!!
