Oh… where to start? There are so many places to go and things to do in Seoul. If you have limited time to be in this amazing city, it is a good idea to have a plan of how you would like to spend your days. If shopping is your thing then you may get in trouble with all the fancy stores and cool things to buy. Chances are good that you will find yourself wandering from store to store and losing all sense of time. The cosmetics industry in Seoul is growing steadily and countries in Asia as well as in America and Europe are turning toward Korean skincare and makeup products. Tourists coming to Seoul often flock straight to the beauty stores to buy ‘souvenirs’ for themselves or gifts for their friends back home.
Once the shopping frenzy has drained your energy, it’s a good idea to embark on a street food tour in Seoul and treat yourself to some local delights while recharging your battery. Seoul is like a food lovers paradise and one of the best ways to taste various types of Korean food without blowing a hole in your wallet is street food. It’s cheap, clean (mostly) and comes in many varieties! From barbequed beef to healthy gimbap (Korean sushi), you are sure to find something that you like.
After you have savored the flavor of delicious Korean street food, wouldn’t it be fun to learn how to make them? No? You prefer buying them? Although some Korean dishes may look intimidating to make, there are many simple dishes that require only a few key ingredients. Cooking classes in Seoul will teach beginner students who have no prior knowledge of Korean food to cook popular dishes without any fuss.
If cooking is not really your thing and you prefer something more animated, taekwondo will definitely kick you into shape. Taekwondo is a famous Korean martial art that teaches students self-defense while burning off any extra calories you might have picked up indulging in Korean food. If you are in Seoul and would like to learn the basics of taekwondo, a half day tour to a Taekwondo Studio for a three-hour workout session may very well fit your bill.
