South Korea is an amazing country and I’m sure no one can deny that. The reasons why you should pack your bags buy a ticket and fly to S.Korea are many, I’ll try to give you the main reasons … so here we go!
- First of all FOOD ! Many of you will say that Korean restaurants are every where no need to fly to south Korea just to eat their food. Sorry guys but eating Kimchi in your country may look as delicious as the one in S.Korea, but it’s not! Original spices, local vegetables, Korean chef, traditional Korean restaurants … Trust me all of these factors affect the food taste, you will never be able to find the same flavors and variety of Korean cuisine as in Korea itself.There are combinations of flavors , spices and recipes that you can not find anywhere else.
- PEOPLE : I’m sure that you’ll be amazed by the kindness of the Korean people. They are friendly, very kind and willing to help you if they can ( There are some exceptions of course ).I watched their dramas for over 8 months and you can not believe how it has affected my behavior ( positively ) so imagine if you could meet Korean people in person and learn from them.
- The Korean sauna: When I first heard about it I thought it’ll be a small , maybe, individual room ( like Hamam or spa ) where you can relax for little time and that’s it, but actually it’s a whole different story than I expected ! In their sauna you find three rooms or you can call them halls: The traditional Korean kiln sauna, The steam rooms and dry saunas. they offer different services like body scrubs and traditional Korean massage… But the thing that caught my attention is : If you can not find where to sleep go to the sauna, you can find people there sleeping, eating… all I can say is go and see it by yourself it will be an amazing experience !
- Shopping !! Let me say this : Seoul is a 24/7 city. You can go there and do your shopping at any time of the day or night. Plus you have a variety of malls, shops, articles that match everybody’s taste. Also the many shopping centers are built next to amusement parks, places of interest for tourists, so make sure when you finish shopping go there and have some fun ;).
