When in Manila Korea, make sure to try these cool activities!


1. Hike up to N Seoul Tower

Instead of taking a cable car, take a scenic hike up to the famous N Seoul Tower! It takes a lot more effort but it will definitely make the climb to the love locks more memorable.korea- photo_2016-07-08_11-25-06

2. Visit the love locks

Lock in that love with a love lock! Or, for the loveless, ogle the lovers and as they pledge their undying love to the world. There are restaurants which serve beer so you can drink while judging the lovey dovey types up there.

7. Indulge in Soju!

Because when in Korea, you must get drunk on Soju! It’s cheap and available everywhere! We also discovered that they came in different flavors. Pro tip: try the peach flavored Soju.

9. Indulge in good food!

Remember, this is the land of Korean barbecue. It would be a great disservice to the country to not have as much as you can eat. korea- photo_2016-07-08_11-25-50 (2)
