When I started watching Korean dramas during my college days the country fascinated me. I told myself that someday I would visit Seoul. So, when we visited Korea, I grabbed the opportunity to maximize our time and visit some tourist spots I’ve seen in K-Dramas. You might be thinking that traveling outside the country costs too much. Well, that’s not true. On our second and third day here in Seoul, Korea, all the tourist spots that we visited were absolutely free. “No Entrance Fee Needed”.
Here are some of those places:
1. Bukchon Hanok Village – located at Gye-dong, Jongno Seoul Korea. This place is very popular among tourists because of its beautiful Korean traditional Houses. Its open 09:00am to 05:00pm only.
2. War Memorial of Korea/Korean War Museum – located at 29 Itaewon-ro, Namyeong-dong, Yongsan-gu Seoul Korea.
If you love to visit museums, this is the perfect place to visit. This museum features Korea history from the prehistoric era to the Japanese colonial period. Also, there are a lot of artifacts, relics, documents, and more displays as well for your reference. It’s open from 09:00am to 02:00pm daily.
3. Yeouido Park – located at 120, Yeouigongwon-ro, Yeongdeungpo, Seoul Korea. We visited this park to see the Sakura Tress and also to walk around the area.
Both locals and tourists set up their own tents inside the park to enjoy the scenery with their love ones. Also, you have plenty of options to do here. You can sit on the bench while watching people roam around; read your favorite books while having coffee; rent a bike or inline skates to ride around; or just walk around just what we did.
4. Namsan Hanok Village – located at 28 Toegye-ro 34-gil, Pil-dong, Jung-gu, Seoul, South Korea. This place is just a 15 to 20minutes walk from our hotel and this is also known for Traditional Korean Houses.
5. Naksan Park – 54 Naksan-gil, Ihwa-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea. Where you can see the panoramic views of downtown Seoul. It opens 24hours.
6. Dongdaemun History & Culture Park – located at 279 Euljiro-dong, Jung-gu, 서울특별시 South Korea. It has a unique building and one of a kind architectural design. But we never tried to explore the area because we’re in hurry to go to N Seoul Tower.
7. N Seoul Tower or Namsan Tower – 105 Namsangongwon-gil, Yongsan 2(i)ga-dong, Yongsan-gu, Seoul, South Korea. This is a communication and observation tower located on Namsan Mountain in central Seoul, and it marks the highest point in Seoul.
