Hi! We are Tian Hoe and Gervina, we went on exchange at Yonsei University, South Korea! ?? Can you recognize this place? N Seoul Tower is a film site for #mylovefromthestar and it is a top destination for any couple. You can purchase locks at the top to lock your love for each other! ?

#1 TIP: Visit at around 4 pm so you can catch the amazing sunset at the top! You can choose to take a 30-min climb or purchase couple tickets for the cable car at 16,000KRW combined!

Share a romantic view with your partner on the highest mountain in eastern South Korea – Seoraksan! ⛰ You may take a cable car at 10,000KRW for a round trip!

#2TIP: Sokcho is the only place in South Korea that you can play Pokemon GO! ?

안녕하십니까! Jeonju Hanok Village has over 800 Hanok houses and you can rent interesting traditional costumes like our emperor and gisaeng outfits. It is about 3hrs away from Seoul via shuttle bus or trains (KTX, Mugungwha) ‼

#3 TIP: You can’t miss their amazing street food, Bibimbap and Makgeolli?

Relive childhood memories at Songwol-dong Fairy Tale Village, located at Incheon. This hidden gem is filled with brightly coloured murals and cafes! ☕

#4 TIP: Visit Incheon Central Park Station (45mins away from Incheon) for the cafe where #DOTS was filmed and if you’re lucky, you might even meet the #songtriplets at the park. ?

 Be it Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter, Nami Island offers a scenic view different from modern Seoul! .

#5TIP: Purchase a 6,000KRW shuttle bus ticket when you first board the bus (valid for the whole day) which brings you to Nami Island, Petite France, and Garden of the Morning Calm on top of other places. Also, consider taking the subway to the nearby Gimyujeong Station for an experience at Gangchon Rail Bike! However, you might not be able to do everything in a day, so choose between 2-3! .

Haneul Park is filled with “lalangs” and offers a breathtaking view of iconic Seoul landmarks like Namsan tower and Bukhansan.

#6 TIP: Check out the 4 other parks around Seoul World Cup Stadium. You can even catch a Soccer match featuring South Korea’s national team or Seoul FC! ⚽ To end off, we are going to bring you to one of our favourite places during our exchange. It was none other than our trip to Jeju Island. It is a place with arguably the most beautiful scenery and delicious food you can find in Korea.
#7 TIP: You will be able to get round trip air tickets below 100SGD! If you are thinking of renting a car (which we did), be mindful that it will be a left hand drive (different from Singapore). If not you can hire a driver! ⚠Make sure you apply for IDP in Sg before your exchange.
