Ideas for Korea (Or: Where Maurina and Mallory Desire To Visit Whilst Simultaneously Terrifying the Natives)
Princess Diary
Namsan Tower
SM Entertainment
Han River
Lotte World!
Coffee Prince Cafe!
Gyeongbokgung Palace
Dongdaemun Market
"Large commercial district comprising traditional markets and shopping centers in Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea"
My dad says it's huge, and suggested it as a place that we definitely need to spend a day in. It's got nearly every type of store imaginable. This is somewhere where we'd both love to go.

Location: http://english.visitkorea.or.kr/enu/SH/SH_EN_7_2_5_1.jsp
Korean Folk Village
War Memorial of Korea
29 Itaewon-ro, Yongsan-gu, Seoul, South Korea
Operating times:
Tuesday - Sunday, 9am - 6pm
*Last admission is an hour before closing time.
Bukhansan National Park?
Seoul Museum of Art
Bomun Pavilion, Gyeongju
The 40 Royal Tombs of the Joseon Dynasty
Gong Cha Bubble Tea
Seodaemun Prison
"One of the most popular pastimes in Seoul is hiking and this stunning national park just outside the city is a local favorite. Aside from a
variety of hiking trails for every skill level
, you’ll also see lots of flora and fauna, temples and ancient fortresses."

Comment on the travel page: "Bukhansan Mt consist of few trails and I did the Baegundae Peak Trail, it is
a really easy and refreshing trail
, the view is nice, a waterfall on the mid hike is also a
good spot for a short breather
. It's only take me 1 hour and 45minutes up, and its definitely stunning.
For those who want to have a good time at the peak to enjoy the view of Seoul, do the hike early in the morning, because it will be a little bit crowded started from 10 in the morning. "
Seodaemun Prison History Hall is a museum and former prison in Seodaemun-gu, Seoul, South Korea

101 Hyeonjeo-dong, Seodaemun-gu, Seoul, South Korea
Scattered over 18 locations... go to a few?
110, Sejong-daero, Jung-gu, Seoul

Looks like a great spot to visit. Maybe a place to relax from walking around. There are a lot of street performers/performances here.

Looks like a gorgeous river and seems to have a lot of attractions and sights along it.

37 Seosomun-dong, Jung-gu, Seoul, South Korea
Seoul Forest
Location: 685, Seongsu 1(il)-ga 1(il)-dong, Seongdong-gu, Seoul, South Korea

It is open year-round, and admission is free.
This is a place that we should go several times. Because bubble tea is amazing. And they apparently have the best. And we really want to go here. This is a must. Please.
Jeju Island
Anapji (Anap Pond)
Yeojwa Stream
Nuri Peace Park
Bulguksa Temple
Haeundae Beach
Darangee Village
Kyeong-Wha Station, Jinhae
Nami Island
Yang Dong Traditional Village
Suwon Hwa Seong
Sin-Reuk Temple, Yeo Ju
Bangwhasuryujeong is one of four polygonal pavilions in Hwa Seong.

During the Joseon dynasty, this pavilion was used to keep a lookout and for performances of King Jungjo’s archery skills; now people hold recitals of Korean traditional music and poetry surrounded by the duck pond, the willow trees and the flowers.

Namdae Stream, Muju
The Garden of Morning Calm
Behold the traditions of yore at the seop bridge festival, which is part of the Muju firefly festival and will take place this year from June 8-16.

Namdae Stream, Muju-eup, Muju-gun, Jeollabuk-do
Princess Diary Cafe is pretty much a dress-up cafe where, depending on how much money you would like to spend (between 15,000 and 40,000 depending on which dress you choose), you can chill out in booths, sip on delicious smoothies and ice-teas…and try on a wide variety of “princess” dresses. Both Maurina and I (And I'm sure you guys too!) would love to dress up in one of the hanboks they offer. I think a picture of that would be a cute souvenir. How to get to the Princess Diary Cafe: Take green circle line (line 2) to Ewha Women’s Univ. Station and walk out of exit 3. Walk down the street to your right when you exit the station then turn left at the Juno Hair alley. The Princess Cafe is on the 3rd floor of the building to your right.
Monday 10:00 am – 11:00 pm
Tuesday 10:00 am – 11:00 pm
Wednesday 10:00 am – 11:00 pm
Thursday 10:00 am – 11:00 pm
Friday 10:00 am – 12:00 am
Saturday 10:00 am – 12:00 am
Sunday 10:00 am – 11:00 pm
Admission and restaurants:
Admission prices:
Adult: 9,000 won
Teen: 7,000 won

So for you two and Maurina, it'd be 9,000 won, and I (Mallory) would be 7,000 won.
With the new ITX train it is even easier than ever to get here. You can take the subway or ITX to CheongPyeong station. From the station it is just a short walk to the bus terminal. At the bus terminal you can catch the green number #17 bus. It is only a short ride to the garden. If you do not want to take the bus you can grab a taxi here as well. A taxi will cost you 15,000₩, I would totally recommend using the bus unless you are on a tight schedule. Once you get to the bus terminal I recommend looking for the old man who is announcing the arrivals and departures of the buses. Show him the name of the garden and he will make sure you get on the correct bus. The bus runs every 30 minutes to 1 hour and takes about 15 minutes from the terminal. Don't worry about getting off, it is the last stop and very obvious that you are in a parking lot.
Directions to the Garden of Morning Calm: get to the Gyeongchun line of the Seoul subway system – it connects to line 7 at Sangbong station. Take the Gyeongchun line to Cheongpyeong station. Take exit 1 to street level, then head to the bus terminal. Take a left to the T, then turn right. At the 1st major intersection take a left and look for the biggest building around. It’s about a 600 meter walk in all, and buses leave for the garden at

Taxis are also available just outside of exit 1. They’ll take about 25-30 minutes and cost 16,000-17,000 won – pretty expensive considering there’s a bus that goes pretty regularly.

Open: 8am-8:30pm (April-October)

Price: 8,000 won admission per adult (cheaper for kids or during the off-season).

Lockers available just inside the entrance for 500 or 1,000 won. -

Found two different sets of directions for getting there:
The garden looks absolutely gorgeous. It'd be a great place to go. Read that it's crowded on the weekends, but big enough for that not to matter.
Gangnam-gu Ahpgujung-2dong 521
Seoul, 413-830

We just want to see it. :)
40-1 Jamsil-dong, Songpa-gu, Seoul, South Korea
Monday 9:30 am – 10:00 pm
Tuesday 9:30 am – 10:00 pm
Wednesday 9:30 am – 10:00 pm
Thursday 9:30 am – 10:00 pm
Friday 9:30 am – 11:00 pm
Saturday 9:30 am – 11:00 pm
Sunday 9:30 am – 11:00 pm
We'd love to go, but we understand that the prices and such may be an issue.
This is somewhere Maurina really wants to go, because it was the cafe used in the filming of one of her favorite Korean dramas. It'd be a nice place to stop and get drinks/food/whatever. However, I'm kind of iffy on it - while I was looking up the address, I found that the drinks there are really expensive (18,000 won for a sherbert drink!?), they don't let you take pictures unless you buy something, and the staff is apparently very rude.

161, Sajik-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea

This place looks AMAZING. It's open in the summertime from 9:30 to 6:30pm. You guys have to check out the site, and all the attractions. I'm (Mallory) especially interested in the traditional Korean restaurant that they have there, as well as the haunted house. I'm (Maurina) interested in the food!!! I love food. And the pottery looks amazing! I am currently a sculpture student, so it would be wonderful to see it!Entrance prices aren't extremely cheap, but it looks worth it, in our opinion.

Location: Yeojwa-dong, Jinhae-gu, Changwon-si, Gyeongsangnam-do
"Seopjikoji is located at the end of the eastern shore of Jeju-do Island. "Seopji" is the old name for the area, and "Koji" is Jeju dialect meaning a sudden bump on land.
Green fields without a single tree spread beyond the cliff to where a rock called “seondol” protrudes. Also there are stonewalls along the road to block the wind on the way to the lighthouse at the end of Seopjikoji. Within the stonewalls, you may find the most brilliant rapeseed flower fields every April.
Going up the metal steps of the lighthouse, you can view the whole seashore at a glance. On Koji hill, there stands a stone Bongsudae (4 m high, 9 m long and wide) that retains its original form."
Jeju looks like a beautiful location and a fun experience.
Need we say more?
15-1, Jinhyeon-dong, Gyeongju-si, Gyeongsangbuk-do, South Korea
Anapji, or Anap Pond is an artificial pond in Gyeongju National Park, South Korea. It was part of the palace complex of ancient Silla. It was constructed by order of King Munmu in 674 CE. Anapji is located in central Gyeongju city, easy to find, easy to go.
It is located within the city lines of Hwasun, but it is closer to the Gwangju city center than it is to that of Hwasun. However, from Gwangju, it is difficult to find because no one seems to know what it is, let alone where it is. To reach Seryang-je, take a bus or taxi from Gwangju university toward Hwasun. Get off at Seryang-ri, which is about 750m after the tunnel. Take the small roadway that runs parallel to the highway and walk back toward the tunnel about 500m and you will come across a sign that will direct you to Seryang-je. If you visit in autumn, this short walk is gorgeous with its golden rice paddies backed by a small mountain on which is a clearly visible ancient grave site.
This place looked cool, but then I (Mallory) read this:


Now, I'm not sure what to think.
Jung-dong, U1-dong, Haeundae-gu, Busan-si
From Seoul Station(subway line #1 or 4 ) take KTX to Busan station( 2hr 30 min travel time) >> From Busan station walk 172m straight and take bus(# 1003)(04:20 to 22:20 / every 9 min / 31 min travel time) >> get off at Haeundae Beach stop and walk 169m to Haeundae Beach
It's really pretty. Looks relaxing. But I'm (Mallory) kind of confused...? Read that it may only open in July, but read somewhere else that it's open year-round.
"The temple is located along/above the southern stretches of the Han River. Located nearby is a really nice little park next to the river with lots of trees and benches, and also the Yeoju Ceramics Expo Center. Each year Yeoju plays host to the World Ceramics Exposition. I didn’t know prior to visiting that Yeoju is world famous for ceramics and at the expo center there are many ceramics galleries (all of which were closed for the New Year holiday) and a place where visitors can make their own ceramics.
If you are visiting Seoul for a short time and are looking for a place outside the city, but not far away to visit and see some cultural sites, Yeoju is highly recommended."
This is in the winter, but it looks beautiful.
Location: 52-1, Yangdong-ri, Gangdong-myeon, Gyeongju-si, Gyeongsangbuk-do, South Korea
Traditional village from the Joseon Dynasty.[1] The village is located in Gangdong-myeon, sixteen kilometers northeast of Gyeongju, Gyeongsangbuk-do, South Korea, along the Hyeongsan River. Mt. Seolchang stands to the north of the village. A fine example of the yangban (Korean aristocracy) lifestyle and Neo-Confucian traditions.
Namisum is a tiny half-moon shaped island located in Chuncheon, South Korea.

Most of the info should be on this site: http://www.namisum.com/
It looks absolutely gorgeous.

11, Haenggung-ro, Paldal-gu, Suwon-si, Gyeonggi-do
Adults 1,000 won / Youth 700 won / Children 500 won
Suwon Station (Seoul Subway Line 1)
Take Bus 2, 7, 7-2, 8, or 13 and get off at Jongno 4-geori (intersection).
Walk 5 minutes to fortress.
There's a gate at the top where people put locks - usually, they write their names on them. It's a cute little sign that they've been there.
Meet Josh
Josh is that friend I (Mallory) told you guys about - the one who visits family in Korea during the summer. He and I really want to meet up at a cafe or something at some point, so once we figure out when/where, I would absolutely love it if we could make a little time in our schedule for that... It would probably be in Seoul...?
That's all, folks!
So yeah. These are just some suggestions and ideas for places we'd like to go, if possible. We know you guys probably have a majority of the trip planned, but these are just some places we'd like to be taken into consideration. :)
Thank You!
