The Ultimate South Korea Bucket List: 41 Things To Do In South Korea

Are you a fan of hit Korean drama series like Descendants of the Sun, Crash Landing On You, You who came from the Stars? Or a mega K-pop fan of SHINee, DBSK, BigBang?

So, do you feel like travelling to South Korea?

It’s quite a bummer with Covid. But hopefully when the vaccine is created, we will get to travel again!

Many years back during my exchange programme in South Korea, I had the opportunity to study and stay in Seoul and immerse in the life of South Koreans.

Here, I’ve compiled a massive list of fun activities that I have done during the autumn and winter but I’m pretty sure, some of them are suitable for summer and spring too!
