4 Amazing Day Trips Near Seoul

Posted on Tue, Sep 29, 2015 @ 12:45 PM

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.

Visit the Daejeon Area while Teaching in Korea

Posted on Thu, Nov 20, 2014 @ 10:04 AM

Now that the autumn season is quickly passing us by, I thought it was best to share my last experience hiking in South Korea for this year. Usually when I go hiking, I like to stay near the Seoul area but this time a couple of teachers and I decided to go hiking near Daejeon. Daejeon is the fifth largest city in South Korea and is known as the ‘Silicon Valley’ of South Korea. Here, you can find KAIST (Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) University where many of my students aspire to attend. On a side note, KAIST is one of the top universities on the Korean peninsula.

Visit Museums Of Optical Illusions While Teaching In Korea!

Posted on Mon, Oct 27, 2014 @ 10:51 AM

I enjoy quirky, and I enjoy silly. Living in Korea, I've had countless opportunities to embrace both of these, but I've found the grandest display of ridiculous to definitely be in the form of the "trick" art museums. I've visited two different ones, and I must say -- if you enjoy acting like a kid and posing for outrageous photos, then this is a place for you.

Other Countries to Visit while Teaching in Korea

Posted on Thu, Oct 16, 2014 @ 09:28 AM

After sharing my experiences in Tokyo with the friends that I have met through ChungDahm, I thought it would be best to highlight some of the other vacation destinations outside of Korea. Some of these we were able to do over a wild and hectic weekend, while the last one, we were able to do over a long holiday. Again, these trips are all possible, but it is definitely beneficial if you live by a major international airport.
