Posted on Tue, Mar 20, 2018 @ 05:54 PM

Spring is my absolute favorite season in Korea. What is there not to love about the sweet smell of cherry blossoms and the return of warm weather!   It is during this time that Korea, comes alive and people are able to enjoy festivals like Tulips in Taean, Cherry Blossoms in Yeouido and strawberries in Nonsan. While these are all great festivals I highly recommend attending during your time teaching in Korea, as a current Seoul resident I wanted to provide you with my five favorite Spring activities in Korea's capital city.

With Summer Here Find Out the Top 5 Places to Visit on the Han River

Posted on Fri, Jun 09, 2017 @ 03:07 PM

As summer is quickly approaching, I wanted to share with everyone my favorite places along the Han River. The Han River splits northern and southern Seoul in half and runs into the neighboring provinces making it in total about 494 kilometers (307 miles). I don’t ever plan to bike the full length, but there are plenty of places near and around Seoul that you can get to if you ride a bike. Korea has put an amazing system of bike lanes that run all over the country as the longest trail runs from Seoul all the way Busan which is on the southeastern coast. For the vicinity around Seoul, you do not need a mountain bike as a road bike will do just fine. When I began teaching in Korea I was able to buy a decent road bike for 220,000 won at a bike shop near my home. There are so many bike shops here in Korea, so don’t be afraid to bargain. There are also bike rentals along major parts of the Han where it only costs a few 1000 won/hour. Here are my favorite spots to go to while biking on the Han River.

Seoul is a city that is designed for cyclists. Koreans cleverly designed the1988 Olympicsbiking and running trails, and sporting facilities with the future in mind. Unlike any other Olympic host country, Korea continues to make full use of their Olympic facilities. Because of this, Seoul is covered in outdoor trails and bike-friendly lanes that have created a cycling culture among Seoul Koreans.
