Check out my FUN travel ADVENTURES IN seoul
and busan, south korea!
I love exploring the observation decks of tall structures—towers, monuments, buildings, skyscrapers—all across the world. It’s just something about being high up in the air and having a grand overview of a city or landscape that is one of the most humbling experiences in the world.
What It’s Like Exploring Marine City, Busan’s Most Affluent Residential & Commercial Area | Don's ESL Adventure!
It must be cool to be rich in Busan; well, at least that’s what I thought after exploring Marine City, the city’s most affluent residential and commercial area.
The SkyArt Gallery at Seoul’s Iconic Gold Plated 63 Building Came Fully Equipped With the Best Views of the City
Type in “top things to do in Seoul” on Google and a trip to the 63 Building is bound to show up within the first 10 search result slots. Ok, ok, maybe the first 20, but as I usually make an effort to visit the observation decks of tall structures—towers, monuments, buildings, skyscrapers—whenever I travel, I figured I just couldn’t finish my weeklong trip to Seoul without paying a visit to the city’s iconic 63 Building.
Favelas in Busan? Not Quite. Why Gamcheon Culture Village is the Hidden Gem in Busan That Every Tourist in the City Should Explore
Wow, favelas in South Korea? Yeah, well, something like that! That’s right, Busan’s Gamcheon Culture Village turned out to be the most unexpectedly awesome attractions that I wound up visiting during my weeklong stay in South Korea.
Temples. Temples. Temples. Yep, Busan is full of em’. Yet, there were only two particular temples that caught my attention from all of the tourist hotspots advertised in Busan’s tourism brochures: Samkwang Temple and Haedong Yonggung.
I made visiting Busan’s Samkwang Temple, or Samgwangsa Temple, my number one priority during my epic adventure in South Korea’s 2nd largest city.
Seoul’s Gyeongbokgung Palace was advertised as the #1 attraction to visit across the city; at least, that’s what I had figured as pictures of it were plastered throughout every tourist website, travel blog, and brochure I had saw during my weeklong stay in South Korea.
My weeklong trip to South Korea back in November of 2015 just wasn’t enough. Sure, I explored popular cities like Seoul and Busan on what seemed like a non-stop tourist vacation, but with so many wonderful attractions at every turn, I just couldn’t see and do all that I wanted in that short amount of time.
