N Seoul Tower

Image
I did all sorts of touristy things during my first trip to Seoul, and one of the places I visited was N Seoul Tower. I went there during daytime, since it is more popular at night.

There are different ways to go to N Seoul Tower. You can go there by cable car, by bus and even on foot. I chose to go by bus and walk all the way up to the top. I then took the cable car to go down, which I believe was not the best choice.


Aside from the majestic view, N Seoul Tower is popular for its colors at night, and the rows upon rows of love locks.

TIP: Bring your own padlock if you want to leave your behind. Padlocks are a bit expensive if you buy them on site.





Nami Island X Petite France

Image
Nami Island is probably one of the most popular tourist attractions in South Korea. Located about an hour and a half from Seoul, Nami Island is very popular whatever the season.

I went to Nami Island during my first trip to South Korea, and it was during the summer. There is nothing special about Nami Island during summer, but it was still packed with people, mostly couples, who want to take a break and have fun.

There are different agencies that offer tour packages to Nami Island, but I decided to take the train to go to Nami Island.

The quickest route to get to Gapyeong Station is to take the Line 1 train either from Seoul Station or City Hall Station, heading to Cheongnyangni station.

From Cheongnyangni Station, take the Gyeongchun Line to Gapyeong Station.

The whole trip will take a little over an hour, depending on how many transfers you take.

From Gapyeong Station, take the Gapyeong City…

Fire Noodle Challenge

안녕 친구!

The so-called "Fire Noodle Challenge" has been around for a long time, but it was only recently that people from my country joined the bandwagon so it became popular recently.

I already tried the Samyang Buldak Bokkumyun noodles (which we used in this video) and I found it really spicy, but it tastes really really good.


So I asked three of my friends to do the challenge and we had so much fun doing it.
