I’ve been to Seoul four times simply because I love this Korean’s capital city so much.

Packed with countless sights to see and places to visit, such as ancient palaces, traditional markets, and high-end shopping districts, Seoul is a city with so much to offer that you might not know where to start.

I enjoy dining and shopping in this buzzing city especially. A typical Korean meal comes with seven or eight separate side dishes – the colourful spread always make me happy! There’s no shortage of cutesy and creative cafes for us to explore too!

Koreans not only follow the latest trends but they also set them, so shopping is definitely good in Seoul. Apart from being able to shop all day long, Seoul is unbeatable for good value.

We all have to agree that there’s so much to do and see in Seoul, however the city’s fast pace and crowds could get too overwhelming, some time away might be just the thing. Here are 5 great day trip ideas.

#1: Gapyeong (Nami Island, Petit France, Garden of Morning Calm)

Nami Island of Winter Sonata fame needs no further information. ‘Winter Sonata’ fan or not, you’ll love strolling the romantic tree-lined paths and scenic lakeshore of Nami Island.

Le Petit Prince is my favourite French story by Saint-Exupéry and I was delighted to hear that they have a French-themed village of Petite France brimming with French food and architecture. There will be plenty of photo opportunities in this beautiful village.

The Garden of Morning Calm is a 30,000㎡ private garden in Korea. Every year, visitors come to enjoy the full blooms between March to November.

#2: Pocheon (Poncheon Art Valley/Pocheon Herb Island/ Sanjeong Lake)

Pocheon Art Valley is also a great place to spend the afternoon. It was an old abandoned rock quarry turned into the nation’s first shared culture and art complex.

Poncheon Herb Island showcases a dazzling array of herbs surrounded by nature. Visitors can also drop by the Herb Museum, Living & Herb Exhibition Hall, Herb Restaurant, Herb Barbecue Restaurant, a café, a bakery, a gift shop, Aroma Therapy Center, Venetia Village, Herb Studio (do-it-yourself crafting), Mini Zoo, and an outdoor performance hall.

#3: Everland

Everland is, without a doubt, Korea’s best amusement park. There’s exciting activities, rides and shows for every age group. Each night, Everland hosts a spectacular fireworks extravaganza which combines brilliant pyrotechnics, a character performance and high-energy music to impress visitors of all ages.
