7-Day Seoul Itinerary - Day 6

7-Day Seoul Itinerary - Day 6

We took a day trip out to the atmospheric port city of Busan on our 6th day. This city boasts a population of over 3.5 million people, and is the second most populated city in South Korea. It is the tenth busiest port city in the world, so there is a lot to see despite its relatively unknown status in the Western world.

DAY 6: Busan Station, Haedong Yonggungsa Temple (Busan), Gamcheon Cultural Village (Busan), Jagalchi Market (Busan)

7-Day Seoul Itinerary - Day 3

On Day 3, we spent the whole day in one of South Korea's most famous national parks - Seoraksan. Despite reading other blogs that recommended not doing this as a day trip but instead staying over at either one of the neighbouring towns Sokcho or Yangyanwe had too many attractions to see on our itinerary list to spare a whole night.

7-Day Seoul Itinerary - Day 2

This was probably one of our most tiring days as we did plenty of walking. It's funny, because much to his annoyance, Ralph was constantly being pushed to go on a hike this trip. On Day 2 we did just that - we walked through central Seoul without relying on public transport and survived it with our calves stronger than ever.

DAY 2: Common Ground, Yeuido Hangang Park, Cheonggyecheon Stream, Gwanghwamun Square and Gate, Insadong
