Seoraksan mountain park. It's beautiful! You may get there from Sokcho town or from Osaek town. There are lots of mountain treks. Cafes can often be met on the treks. There are no guides in the National park!

The best aquapark in Seoul is Woongjin Play Doci (former Tiger World). It's under the roof, and it has geothermal spring. Though I'm not sure about the last.

Plus Seoul temples and Old Town. Remember that most of temples are new built.

Plus Seoul Tower, Namdaemoon market, Nanta theater, Seoul Grand Park, Everland Park, Caribean Bay aquapark...

Seoul in a few days. What to see? Maybe aqua park?

Demilitarized zone. It's not far from Seoul.


[2015-03-04] Jimmy

Seoul. It was enough for me. Also you may visit big fortress in Suvon located near Seoul. Also Busan is 4 hours by train from Seoul.

+ N-Tower
