I love to travel! The opportunity to travel is one of the main reasons I’ve stayed in Korea for almost 4 years. Traveling can be a weekend jaunt to a nearby country or a more in depth trip between teaching jobs or contracts. Local travel is just as interesting and there are many suburbs to explore around Seoul via the subway or express bus service. Here are my top picks for a quick day trip outside of Seoul.Read More

By "day trip" I mean just an hour or two of travel from Seoul, with activities that can be accomplished in one day, and time to get all the way home again before bed. Technically, anywhere in the entire country could be seen as a day trip as it's approximately the size of Indiana, but here are my favorite spots that are really easy to get to and from.

One thing that I really love about living in Korea is the history that's simply everywhere. With Korea's rapid modernization, fancy cities have sprung up around old structures, creating a really interesting contrast of the new against the historical. One of the coolest examples of this is Suwon's Hwaseong Fortress. It's right outside of Seoul, easily accessible via the subway, making it an excellent daytrip that you should check out this summer!
