    Seoul was the first international and solo long haul flight I ever took back in   2015. Since then I have been visiting once or twice a year, having bestie makes it fun. I rarely touristy stuff and only go to spend time with my bestie. The September 2018 visit was no different but will be sharing best places to visit for first-timers.

    Take Twelve Trips – September 2018

    Seoul is such an incredible city, it is so lively but within it can be so peaceful. Ever since I started visiting, I have not stopped eating Korean BBQ on my every visit. I have tried other foods and if I am honest, I have enjoyed most of them. 

    This year was the first time I went to the Han river (Hanging) and enjoyed a picnic. I did new things that I never thought I would ever do whilst visiting Seoul. Definitely excited for my return next when I was to explore more places outside Seoul.

    Seoul Highlights – Week 1

    Arriving in Korea, I took a bus from the airport straight through to the Seoul. One thing I love about Korea is its public transport across the city, to/from the airport. The bus from Incheon through to Guii is about an hour but with traffic can be longer.

    The next few days were spent making new friends, going out on the town and eating. What I love about Seoul and Korea, in general, is just how cheap everything is. During the first week, I probably ate my entire body weight and more. I do not regret it as it was super yummy foods and mostly healthier than western diet.

    Seoul Highlights -Week 2

    The final week in Seoul has been such a whirlwind of a time, I barely remember. I spent most of my time looking after my mental wellness and personal time. This was all during the day and during the night we would be out on the town.

    When I am home in the UK, I rarely go out on the town as I am a homebody. But when I visiting Korea, it’s like I am the most outgoing person you’ve ever met. I am someone who enjoys there own company but I am very outgoing as well.

    One of the big things I will miss in Seoul apart from bestie is waking up whenever. Suffering from insomnia it’s not fun not being able to just enjoy a good nights sleep. In Korea, I have been sleeping like a log, though I still woke up really early.

    I will definitely miss being in Seoul, meeting new people and some crazy wonderful cafes. Most days I woke up early just to go people watch and work at a cafe.

      I’d love to go to Seoul – it looks like such a beautiful place, and I love Korean food so I’d definitely be with you on the food party! Twelve trips in one years sounds amazing too, what a great idea.

      My husband goes all the time for work, and I absolutely need to go with him next time. Sounds like you had a lot of fun, did you eat a lot of the food too? It’s some of my favourite! 🙂

      That skyline is just amazingly beautiful! I am not one for urban areas but I find real beauty in your photos from this city. I think I would like to adventure there just for a walk with my camera

      Oh Seoul looks beautiful and what a stunning skyline it has too. It’s not somewhere I have thought of visiting but the fact that it’s cheap to eat and go out makes it sound like another reason for visiting.
