Korea is a gorgeous country, and we definitely want to see it while we are here. Lately, we’ve been working on our Korean Bucket List, and I thought I’d post it up here (especially since we’ve been checking some items off the list). I wouldn’t say this list is complete, but it’s definitely a start!
2. Visit and hike Seoraksan National Park. The park is known to be the most beautiful place in Korea. (May ’13) 3. Go exploring on Geoje Island. Geoje is where we are living, and since it is a rather large island, we naturally want to explore and see what’s around the corner. (May ’13) 4. Experience the ever famous Korean Jjimjilbangs (public bath houses). (April ’13) 5. Walk through the Bulguksa Temple. Not only is this temple beautiful, but it is also one of the head temples in Korea. (June, 2013) 6. Wander through the streets of the Yangdong Traditional Village. The village is one of the few traditional villages in Korea and it is listed as a World Heritage site. (June 2013) 7. Tour the DMZ(the boarder between North and South Korea). (February ’13) 8. Walk through the Gyeongbokgung Palace in Seoul. This is one of the largest and most famous palaces in Korea. (July, 2013)
9. Go shopping at the traditional Namdaemun Market in Seoul.
10. Walk through the Green Tea Fields of Boseong. This is where the majority of Korea’s green tea is harvested. (June ’13)
11. Take a trip on our motorcycle across Korea.
12. Camp on the beaches of Namhae Island. (June, 2013) 13. Try a Korean Craft Project. Do cupcakes count? (May ’13) 14. Sip coffee at a Cat Café. After I found out that they have “dog cafés,” I decided to change this item to “Sip coffee at a Dog Café.” (July, 2013)
15. Try on Hanbok (traditional Korean clothing).
16. Go snowboarding in Muju (January, 2014)
17. Backpack across our Island (Geoje)
18. Go shopping in Myeongdong, Seoul. Myeongdong is one of Korea’s primer shopping areas. (July 2013) 19. Walk through the artistic streets of Gamcheon Culture Village in Busan. (July, 2013) 20. Explore the craft mall “Busan-jin Market” in Busan again. This is my favorite place in Korea, and I want to go back!
Well, that’s it for now. What’s on your bucket list for Korea?
