The Top 50 Experiences in South Korea

Top 50 Experiences in South Korea

As my time in South Korea is almost at its end, and since I have always been a huge lover of lists, I present here a list of my top 50 favorite experiences in this small but incredible country. It's by no means an exhaustive or definitive list, since there are lots of major sights here I haven't visited yet (I'll mention some of them at the end of the list).

In any case, I hope there's enough here to give readers a sense of the sheer diversity of experiences on offer. Korea doesn't have any big "wonder of the world" type sights. There's no Eiffel Tower, or Pyramids of Giza, or Taj Mahal. As a result, it doesn't have quite the fame or reputation that other Asian countries have acquired, and many backpackers often skip it in favor of Japan, China or Southeast Asia. That's unfortunate, because there is so much to see and do, and I've had some of the most enriching experiences of my life here.

Quiz Night, My Birthday, and Lunar New Year

It's hard to believe Angela and I only have one more month left in Korea. We've been waiting to go travelling the rest of Asia for a long time now, and it feels great knowing it's right around the corner.
In the meantime, here's a quick update as to some of the stuff we've been up to since my last post.
