5 Unique Spots to Check Out In Seoul

Posted on Tue, Nov 21, 2017 @ 04:32 PM

Seoul is a city that never sleeps and you can find something to do, anytime, anywhere.  Having access to do things like food shopping or grabbing a bite to eat 24 hours a day is why Seoul has become one of my favorite cities in the world.  Also, there is literally a district in Seoul for every type of person.  There are districts for the budding fashionista's, the coffee-goers, the party animals and the travelers. Seoul also has the perfect blend of modern buildings and historic landmarks.  The typical Seoul 'to do list' would recommend tourist hot spots like Myeongdong and ltaewon, however as a honorary Seoulite, I'd like to give alternatives to the top 5 day trip spots to check out in the city during your time teaching in Korea.

5 Reasons to Visit Korea from a ChungDahm Alumnus

Posted on Tue, Jan 10, 2017 @ 04:11 PM

Cindy Ung is a ChungDahm Learning alumnus whom I met during our training week back in the winter of 2011. Not only have I had the privilege of being friends with Cindy, she also introduced me to Aclipse Recruiting. Originally from New York City, Cindy studied at Rutgers University where she was able to learn about teaching opportunities in Korea. Wanting to broaden her perspectives of the world, she lived and worked for ChungDahm in Seoul for two years and since leaving ChungDahm over 3 years ago, she has become a successful real estate agent in New York City. However, every year during her vacation she always opts to come back and visit Seoul for the week. When I ask her why doesn’t she go travel to another country, she always says that that Korea has become her second home. For many of us teaching in Korea, I think Korea will always have a special place in our hearts just like hers. Below are Cindy’s top 5 reasons why she continues to come back to Korea.

Seoul is known as the partying capital of Korea. An equivalent to the Asian ‘New York’, it is a city that never sleeps. You will see party goers coming home from clubs and bars at 6 a.m. in the morning. There are no curfews and no time limits. Seoul is always buzzing and it is a perfect city to find your inner party spirit and weekend energy.
