Hiking in the Heart of Seoul, Korea – Climbing Mt. Bugaksan

Posted on Mon, May 13, 2013 @ 04:00 PM

One of the greatest things about becoming an ESL teacher for Chungdahm is the large amount of time you’re going to have off. Between the hours themselves, level tests, and holidays, you’re definitely going to have a good amount of time off, so you need to take advantage of it. I personally have not had to work a Wednesday in my 11 months living here. It’s been awesome. And this semester no one in my branch is working Wednesdays so we’ve made it a point to go on Wednesday adventures and enjoy the beginning stages of springtime in Korea. This past Wednesday we hiked Bugaksan, situated in the heart of Seoul, right behind Gyeongbukgong Palace. It was a great hike with a little history mixed in and some great views of the surrounding mountains and the city itself.

While teaching English in Korea, I've discovered different rules for every day acts. The strict garbage rules in Korea require you to separate your garbage into different colored bags (based on your local area) which was mentioned in a previous blog post. Who would have ever thought that they would be so strict in public also? I wouldn't call it being strict, but more of ecological. I am totally in love with the concept and it does help to make it easier for those working in food locations to take out the garbage in an easier and cleaner way. Plus, it promotes being green and I love it !
