1) BUKCHON HANOK VILLAGE
Subway line #3 to Anguk Stn, Exit #3
This place is a MUST visit if you love traditional heritage buildings. When my brother and I were looking for our guesthouse, we chanced upon this place by mistake. Haha.. I read on the internet that the filming location for "Personal Taste" (alert: Lee Min Ho!!!) was one of the houses there. It's a pity I couldn't get the chance to find the particular house :(
Sorry, no directions provided but you can go goggle search. If I'm not wrong, it's near Anguk Stn too. But anyways, I don't think this place is worth a visit :/ Too overrated. Can skip unless you're too bored. LOL
The only theme park we visited. Was suppose to go LOTTE WORLD too but decided to give it a miss. Everland is located somewhere away from the city, thus the landscape is beautiful especially during Spring (I'm not sure of the other season. I believe Winter would be a nice season to visit too). One full day is needed if you're planning to take most of the rides.
4) HONGIK UNIVERSITY
There's a flea market there every Saturday (except for Winter).
Visit in the day for pretty cafes and night for clubbing! ;)
6) EWHA WOMENS UNIVERSITY
CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP SHOPPING THRILLS! :D The shops outside the university area are selling stuffs mostly around 10,000 won (SGD$12?)
7) GANGNAM TERMINAL UNDERGROUND SHOPPING
Pretty place lined with restaurants :))
It's a stream/river near DONGDAEMUN Wholesale shopping area. I visited the stream at night and it was simply breath taking. But I don't advise to shop in DONGDAEMUN unless you really know how to bargain and good in Korean.
10) NAMI ISLAND
MUST VISIT!!!!!!!!!!!!! Very very very beautiful island. Enough said :p
11) KOREAN HISTORICAL DRAMA SET
Another must visit! After I came back from Korea, I start to notice all those historical dramas' backgrounds are all the same (filmed at the same location I visited). Haha.. this drama set is so fun especially when there's no other visitors. But be careful of bees/hornets! :S Not sure if it's because of the Spring season.. but there were hell lotsss of them when I went there. (I'll be posting more pics of this place sooooooooooooooooon! Promise!)
