During my time in Korea, I've been lucky enough to have a fair number of visitors. My best friend is currently visiting from back home in the U.S., and as I've been pulling her around Seoul to the spots I deem the most interesting and picturesque, I realized that I've got this tour guide thing down to a science. So whether you're new to Korea yourself or you're expecting visitors during your time here, let this be a guide for the spots you should definitely see.

Since the humidity and heat of the summer makes everyone want to stay indoors, I try to spend my weekends going to museums around Seoul that I haven't gotten to see yet. As part of this avoid-being-really-sweaty plan, each summer I keep an eye out for visiting exhibits that are worth checking out. The opportunity to see something cool and be in a nice air conditioned building? Sounds like an excellent Saturday to me. Recently, I was able to check out one of the current exhibits in Seoul, the Weta Workshop at the Dongdaemun Design Plaza.
Next to Dongdaemun Gate is an area of Seoul famous for its countless markets, ranging from clothing to textiles to craft supplies. Now, in the middle of these more traditional markets and hip shopping malls, a structure that looks like something out of a futuristic landscape has finally been unveiled. This spaceship-like building is the new Dongdaemun Design Plaza, and not only is it really, really cool, but possibly one of my new favorite spots to visit in Seoul.
