My Bucket List: 50 Places in Seoul in One Year

50 things to do in seoul

What is the biggest tourist spot in your city? What is the most famous landmark that Trip Adviser tells you you have to see in your city? Now tell me, how many of those places have you actually visited?

There’s a saying that if Disneyland is outside your door, you will never go until a friend from out of town visits. We are usually so focused on seeing places outside of where we live and visiting new countries that we neglect all the great places to see within a short walk or drive.

This certainly was the case for me in every place I lived in. Every time I was getting ready to move to a new city, I immediately regretted not having explored more. But not this time!

In an effort to counteract this never-ending cycle of regrets about the places I never got to see, I have compiled a list of 50 places in Seoul that I want to have visited by June 7, 2018. Seoul is truly a beauty with much to see and I don’t want to delay having awesome adventures in this city I now call home.
