great tourist spots in South Korea
to all the pink fashion ninja readers. I hope you enjoy reading these
posts as much as I do. Let me start first by introducing myself. My
name is Shonna Sutton otherwise known as Shonna Sutton haha. I am
from North Carolina. I have come across an interest into Asian
cultures when I was in high school. My high school friends introduce
me to a few manga’s and it just took off from there. When I started
college that’s when I grew an interest with Korea. The language was
so interesting to me so I wanted to know more about the country. I
have watched quite a few Korean dramas and also listened to many kpop
songs. BIGBANG
of that we are here to know about my list of spots to check out
anytime you are traveling to Korea. You may know these spots already
or you may not know them. I have never been to Korea myself

but, these are the places I want to visit. They are really cool so
check them out!
  1. Namhansanseong

you like hiking trails then I recommend Namhansanseong Fortress. It
is located on Mt. Namhansan in the Gyeonggi-do Province. It was
originally built as an earthen fortress during Gogureyo period, about
2,000 years ago but properly built in 1621 after many renovations. A
very beautiful place with great scenery throughout the whole year.

  1. Cheonjiyeon

name meaning “God’s pond” comes from a legend about seven
fairies serving the King of Heaven coming down to the pond and
bathing in the water. This beautiful waterfall is located right on
Jeju Island. The waterfall is 22m high, 12m wide. I would like to
take a dive in that water.

  1. Bukchon
    Hanok Village

Korean traditional houses are called “Hanoks” which goes back to
the Joseon Dynasty period. It is located in the

part of Cheonggyecheon and Jongno-gu. Some Hanoks are still own by
locals but most have been turned into museums, guesthouses, and
restaurants. I wouldn’t mind staying in a Hanok for a day or two to
get a real experience of living in a traditional Korean house.
  1. Banpo

Banpodaegyo Bridge (Bango Bridge) Rainbow Fountain is the world’s
longest fountain bridge. Located in Seoul. The fountain plays
different shows from morning and into the night. The best show is
during the night. There are 200 lights illuminating the fountain
sending rainbow colored water in the air in sync with the music.
  1. N
    Seoul Tower

you ever wanted to get a stunning view of Seoul and the surrounding
areas? You definitely should check out N Seoul Tower. It sits on
Namsan Mountain at 236.7m located in Seoul. It was renamed “N Seoul
Tower” because the “N” stands for new look. There is an N Grill
western-style revolving restaurant and the Sky Restroom. How crazy is
that!!! 😀
  1. SEA
    LIFE Busan Aquarium

sweet aquarium has over 35,000 species of fish, algae, reptiles, and
amphibians. It is spread over 3 underground levels and has an outdoor
park. Located in Haeundae-gu in Busan. Walk along the tunnel and see
several of sea creatures swimming above. I want to see the fishes!
but not least is…… of course a shopping center.
  1. COEX


incredible mall is the largest underground shopping center in Asia.
It is located in the Gangnam-gu area in the basement of Korea World
Trade Center. There are many attractions, restaurants, shopping, and
entertainment options for everyone. Is it possible for me to just
live in the COEX Mall? IT HAS EVERYTHING!

there is my list. What places do you want to visit in Korea? Let me
know what you think. There are many other great tourist attractions
Korea offers that I like but, I can’t write them all here haha.
