Are you currently planning your own South Korean travel? Perhaps you want to see the highlights of South Korea but do not want to do the research? In this post, I am going to tell you the route I went and why you should go to these places.
This is my final post of South Korea which will tell you my highlights of this beautiful country.
I met so many amazing South Korea people during my visit to the country. Hence, I really wanted to share with you about them, their story, and what I have learn from them.

Being a vegetarian whilst travelling in Korea was really difficult. It has most definitely been the hardest country to find food with no meat or fish. Even harder than other countries I found difficult such as Taiwan and Brazil. If you share my dilemma, you might want to read this post all to do with vegetarian food in South Korea.
Many cars slowed down to take a look but few had the courage to stop. We were unsure if it was that they couldn’t speak English or if they were just not going that far. Some people did stop but decided not to give us a lift as they were not going to the exact place that we were going. Unable to communicate that they could take us as far as they were going, we had to let them go. If you are in South Korea, you need to read this hitchhiker’s guide to South Korea.
We learnt a lot in the two days of hitchhiking 350 km down the east coast of South Korea. Therefore, I have decided to put together some tips for others planning on hitchhiking in South Korea.
Whilst in Seoul, South Korea, I witnessed history in the making as millions of people join the Seoul protests and took to the streets. The protested against their president, Park Geun-hye. Imagine a country where they make their voice heard in a peaceful way with a tsunami of candles!

Travelling on a budget can be difficult at times especially in big cities when there are so many things to do that cost money. Entrance fees and and tours can take a huge chunk out of your travel budget. However in Seoul, we found travelling on a budget wasn’t as hard as we thought it would be. There are plenty of free things to do in Seoul! With cheap public transport getting around was easy; therefore, it was finding things to do within our budget that was needed.
