Must Eat Food + Touristy Spots | S. Korea

When you’re in S. Korea, you do two main things: eat and shop. Of course you’ll visit some tourist attractions so I’ll share some that I didn’t mention in my previous Korea posts (like my fave cafe spots or Haneul Park). Enjoy!

Namsan Tower- if you visit at night you can get the most beautiful view of Seoul. Don't forget to add your love lock! Lock sets are sold up in the gift shops. Brownie points to the planner for a romantic date night. :) 

Busan- the Gamcheon Cultural Village is a must visit! It's cute, colorful, and perfect for explorers at heart.

 Pumpkin Porridge- So comforting on a cold day, and great to soothe a sensitive stomach.

 Dwaeji Gukbap: Busan is known for making this pork stew. It is so delicious and makes a wonderful meal any time of the day.

Infinite’s Sungyeol's parents opened up a fried chicken shop called "BBQ Chicken" and it is SO good! It's definitely worth a visit- good food, great prices, and you might even catch a glimpse of the kpop idol working the shop!

KBBQ is another must-have! We've yet to find our favorite KBBQ joint, but the one pictured below is Maple Tree House BBQ. It was reasonably priced, but definitely more of a foreigner spot than a local one.

Make like the locals and eat ttokbokki sold by the friendly ajummas right in the street! 

That is a wrap for my entire Korea trip! I hope you enjoyed it!
