If you’ve seen my latest posts about overseas packing, you’d know I recently spent a week and a bit in South Korea! I had an absolutely wonderful time there and loved the atmosphere of it all. We stayed in an Airbnb in Seoul, with day trips to Busan and the DMZ/JSA, as well as a quick tour of Beijing during our layover on the way home. If you like bustling Asian cities, full of culture, shopping, entertainment and incredible food, put Seoul on your travel bucket list. It was the best place I’ve ever visited 🙂
I will also be doing a post with all my top tips as a foreigner travelling through South Korea, so if you’re interested in going, hold tight for that post!
