Best places in Korea - Daegu
3 great activities to do in Daegu, South Korea, a city in the southern region of the country. Over 2 days we went zip-lining at a place called Hillcrest, went to E-World amusement park in the evening, and rode tandem bikes and segways along Nakdong River at a place called The Arc (an interesting and odd looking structure in Daegu).
We got around to these places by taxi, bus, and subway which were all pretty cheap and easy to use. After The Arc we actually had help from the segway rental guy to use the Kakao Taxi app and call a cab for us to get back to the train station.

7. Hahoe Folk Village
The Hahoe Folk Village is a traditional village from the Joseon Dynasty. The village is a valuable part of Korean culture because it preserves Joseon period-style architecture, folk traditions, valuable books, and old tradition of clan-based villages. The village is located in Andong, Gyeongsangbuk-do.
6. Insadong Shopping Street
Insadong is a dong, or neighborhood of the Jongno-gu district of the South Korean city of Seoul. The main street is Insadong-gil, which is connected to a multitude of alleys that lead deeper into the district, with modern galleries and tea shops. At one time it was the largest market for antiques and artworks in Korea.
5. N Seoul Tower
The N Seoul Tower is a communication and observation tower located on Namsan Mountain in central Seoul. It marks the highest point in Seoul. Many visitors ride the Namsan cable car up the Mt. Namsan to walk to the tower. The tower is renowned as a national landmark, and for its cityscape.
4. Seoraksan National Park
Seoraksan is the highest mountain in the Taebaek mountain range in the Gangwon Province in eastern South Korea. It is located in a national park near the city of Sokcho. After the Hallasan volcano on Jeju Island and Jirisan in the south, Seoraksan is the third highest mountain in South Korea.
Gyeongju, a previous capital city of one of the Korean kingdoms, is possibly the foremost location in Korea where ancient buildings, burial grounds and artifacts can be found. Driving through this city you will notice that the typical modern Korean buildings are frequently interspersed with large burial mounds.
2. Demilitarized Zone

It is one of the Five Grand Palaces built by the kings of the Joseon Dynasty (1392--1897). Changdeokgung was the most favored palace of many Joseon princes and retained many elements dating from the Three Kingdoms of Korea period that were not incorporated in the more contemporary Gyeongbokgung.

10. Dadohae Haesang National Park
At the bottom of South Korea is the Dadohae Haesang National Park, 1,700 islands spread out across the southern coastal waters. These islets vary in size with some home to isolated communities while some hold merely a few dozen trees. Cheongsando is one of the larger islands. Translated to ‘Blue Mountain Island’, it’s a ‘slow city’ meaning it’s one of the best places to discover genuine and authentic culture.
Suwon is the largest metropolis of Gyeonggi-do, the province which surrounds Seoul. The Hwaseong Fortress was built in 1794 by the Joseon dynasty ruler King Jeongjo with the aim to move the capital from Seoul to Suwon. However, before this could happen King Jeongjo died and power stayed in Seoul.
South Korea’s second biggest city, Busan brings together tropical beaches and majestic mountains, ancient Buddhist temples and a glamorous film festival. Busan is famous for its delicious seafood with many restaurants and the Jagalchi fish market. For incredible vistas of the intriguing city, hike to the top of Jangan Mountain. While many of Korea’s temples are nestled in hills and mountains, the Haedong Yonggung Temple is on Busan’s coast overlooking the Sea of Japan.
A peaceful place with astonishing scenery, Pyeongchang has seen a lot of development in recent years. It’s found in the Taeback Mountains region with parts of it sitting 2,300 feet above sea level. With lots of seasonal snow and maximum temperatures reaching just above freezing in January, it’s the perfect location for the 2018 Winter Olympics.
06. Andong & Hahoe Folk Villages
Andong’s peaceful, rural surroundings are in stark contrast to the buzz of Seoul. Set in the heart of Gyeongsangbuk-do, Andong is noted for having preserved much of its traditional spirit. A great place to see Korean traditions unfold is the cultural village of Hahoe, where the noble Ryu family originated and have lived for the past 600 years.
05. The Demiliterized Zone (DMZ)
The Korean DMZ or Korean Demilitarized Zone is a buffer zone between North and South Korea. Created in 1953 at the end of the Korean War, the DMZ remains as one of the most militarized regions in the world.
04. Jeju Island
Although it lies only 85km off the coast of South Korea, Jeju Island (more specifically Jeju-do) has developed its own unique history, traditional dress, architecture and linguistic traditions. With a moderate climate that differs surprisingly from the mainland, Jeju-do has a sub-tropical southern side and a more temperate northern region.
03. Seoraksan National Park
Designated as a Biosphere Protection Site by UNESCO, the 400 000 sq km Seoraksan National Park’s unique rock formations, wildlife, hot springs, dense woodland and temples from the Silla-era make it an area of South Korea that simply has to be visited. Each area of this incredibly beautiful park has its own unique appeal and attractions.
Once the capital of the ancient kingdom of Silla, Gyeongju is a coastal city in South Korea with a rich selection of cultural and historical attractions. Its Silla heritage stretches back over 1000 years, with ancient sites, relics and ruins found throughout the city. The Gyeongju National Museum is home to countless treasures and the 23 ton Emille Bell cast in AD771. Gyeongju's other highlights include the scenic Anapji Pond, Tumuli Park which is the site of incredible giant grass-covered burial mounds and the ancient UNESCO World Heritage Listed Bulguk-sa Temple.
The vibrant, modern city of Seoul definitively lives up to the ‘24-hour party’ tag that other cities can only pay lip service to. A buzzing urban expanse that is striving to reshape its hardened concrete and steel edges with gorgeous city parks, cultural landmarks and tasteful design. You’ll find a host of exciting places to eat, drink, shop and relax, whether you’re in Hongdae’s chic bars and restaurants or the stylish boutiques of Apgujeong.

Trip to Chuncheon 춘천 여행
Chuncheon(춘천) is the capital of Gangwon(강원) province in South Korea. Chuncheon can be wonderful place to spend holiday. And one of the popular places for locals and many other East Asian tourists are visiting Nami Island(남이섬), which consists of tree lined boulevards that are among the set locations for the popular Korean drama serial, Winter Sonata(겨울연가). Particulary romantic when it snows in the winter, and popular among couples.
Camping in Korea - Gangwon province
※ This video includes the actual things we can enjoy on this camping tour.
※ Please visit my facebook page if you want to make a reservation for this tour.
• My camping tour
1) This tour is open to everyone who is tired of city life. Let's go to the nature to relax. You will be healed, and you will find yourself.
2) My goal is to give my customers a real experience. Ride a bike, feel the Korean nature, lie down and read a book in a Korean National Park, have Samgyeopsal (pork belly) and Makgeolli (rice wine) with me in a mountain, and rest in a Korean hot spring.
3) This tour is for people who are tired of big group tours. It is true that you can save money if you travel with many people, but I am not sure if the quality will be good. If you have experienced packaged tours before, you would know what I mean. You normally should follow a schedule which is made by a tour company, which can include enjoying the tourist attractions in only a short time, and going to shopping centers, even if you don't want to go. Well, I always prefer a small group because I know it will be more comfortable for you.
• Advantages of camping in Korea
1) South Korea consists of mountainous areas, covering more than 70% of the country, and there are approximately 3,200 islands. Also, accessibility to mountains and islands is good because transportation infrastructure is well constructed.
2) South Korea's security has been ranked as the best in the world. You don't need to be worried during camping anymore.
3) Because South Korea is small, it can be an advantage for camping. We can combine a variety of activities into camping because we can easily go anywhere.
