There’s no way around it, the city of Seoul is overloaded at its finest. With spring by the corner, it is time to explore Seoul. Here is my list of unique things to see and do in Seoul.
Visit the Dongdaemun design plaza
Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) is the newest and most iconic landmark of the Korean design industry. It is located at the center of the Dongdaemun area and serves as a venue for exhibitions, shows and other events.
Visit a themed café.
Café is a part of the Korean culture, so every street has cafés littered around. There are cafés with several themes, one of which is the poop themed café in insadong. From the décor to the drinks and even the food! So, if you ever stressed and in need of good fortune, find your way to a poop café.
There is a poop shaped pillow on the chairs, a toilet-shaped mug to drink your latte from, a poop shaped ice-cream and waffles. Even the walls are not left out, there are poop shaped smileys painted on them.
Visit the Lotte World Mall at Jamsil station
There is a free exhibition outside the Jamsil station in front of the Lotte Tower and on the 6th Floor of the Lotte duty-free. You can also stop by the Impressive Arc n Book. Watch this video to see more
Take a cooking class.
Even though I don’t know how to cook, one of the unique things to see and do in Seoul is to take a Korean cooking class! I learnt to make a dish by taking the online Korean Temple cooking class.
Stop by the Seoul Botanical Garden
The Seoul Botanical Garden is one of the newest attractions in Seoul. The Seoul botanical garden is a perfect place for a date and family outings. There is a playground, exhibition hall, snack bars, Korean Cafeteria, and an Italian/Fusion Restaurant on the 6th floor of the building. If you love plants and outdoor space, this is a place to visit.
There is a new exhibition outside COEX. Check out this video to see more.
Stop by the Bongeunsa Temple
If you have watched the part 3 of the movie; “ To all the boys”, the Bongeusa Temple was one of the sites shot in the movie. Even if you have visited this temple, you can’t fully explore all of its beauty.
Wear a hanbok!
Whenever you have the opportunity to experience the culture of a place, you should take it. One of the unique things to see and do in Seoul is to wear a hanbok.
Try Some chocolate Chicken.
One of thing that never seizes to amaze me is Korean Fusion dishes. Imagine eating chicken dipped in chocolate, adventurous right?
