7 days itinerary in Korea

I have been asked by many, what if they only have a week to spend in Korea, where should they go or what should they do? Assuming that the whole 7 days you are in Korea and excluding the flight arrival/departure. This suggestion is not necessary to be done in the order below. It is all up to you and the weather. ^^ 1.Myeongdong - Namsan tower - Namdaemun This three places are in the same location. You can do within one day. From Myeongdong subway station, you could walk around 15 minutes up the hill to Namsan tower cable station. Myeongdong is a great place to shop for younger generation and I like the energy there. If you want to watch Nanta show you could opt for Myeongdong theather. Namdaemun is just across the road after you complete the whole stretch of Myeongdong street and a few shopping complex are around the are Shinsegae, Lotte and Avenue. I love eating at the basement food court in Lotte but most of the time it's crowded. 2. Insadong - Jongno - Cheongyecheon - Gyeongbok/Chandeok palace - Dongdaemun If you walk along the Cheongyecheon stream, you could choose the exits to Jongno, Insadong or Dongdaemun. They are just very closed to each other. If you love antiques and arts galleries take the opportunity to savour the beauty of Insadong. There are so many korean traditional restaurant to choose around this area. At the end of the Insadong street you could visit the infamous Gyeongbok/Chandeok palace. Gyeongbok is the masculine type of palace while Chandeok is the feminine counterpart. I love both palace. Try to visit both if you have the time. Dongdaemun is better visited at night because the place is heated up in between 10PM to 5AM. 3.Nami island The place is a bit further out from Seoul. You may need to take 1 hour and a half train from Cheongyanni Station and stopped at Gapyeong Station. From there, take a taxi to the jetty and a ferry to the island. If you love the Winter Sonata hit drama by Bae Yong Jun and Choi Ji Woo, don't miss this spot. I prefer this place in autumn and winter. 4. Yeoido/Yeoinaru - Hangang River - 63 Building - Aquaria If you want to visit the broadcasting stations like KBS and MBC, you should go to Yeoido/Yeoinaru and then visit the 63 building where they have an aquarium attached. Complete your day with Hangang River cruise at night. This place is pretty in spring. 5. Lotte World/Everland Choose one of the theme parks. Lotte world is just in Seoul near Jamsil but you need to take a 1 hour bus to Everland. The entry price is about the same but Everland is much bigger. Avoid school holidays or public holidays because the queue for the games will be never ending story. One whole day is needed for theme park. 6. DMZ - Demilitarized Zone Stretched further out from Seoul. This is a place worth visiting cause it is a place like no other in South Korea. DMZ is the border between South Korea and North Korea

7. Apgujeong for K-pop lovers / National Museum for historical lovers/ Shopping

You might meet your K-pop idols in Apgujeong but this is not a guarantee. Try walking into any of the post salons there and you might bumped into them. Final day should be left for free tour. You could choose the suggested one or just do some shopping before you leave Korea. There are so many places to visit in Korea which are left out: Hongik/Hongdae or Ewha/Sinchon - students flock this area because a few universities are here. Gwanghamun - King Sejong and General Lee Sun Shin statue and their memorial Gyeongju - If you have another 2-3 days extra, a MUST visit historical site. Jeju island - If you have another 2-3 days extra, the infamous island with an inactive volcano mount Halla.

YC TimeOut Gelato: Line #2.. Apgujeong Station.. Exit #5.. walk straight out of the exit down the sidewalk then take the first left down a side road and you'll see it on the left. YC MicKiss: Line number 7, Gangnam-gu Office Station, Exit #2.. As soon as you come out of the exit turn to your left & it is the building right in front of you "SK Hub Blue". Walk in to the elevators past the front desk on your right. Take the elevator to the 5th flr, turn left out of the elevator then right down the hallway.. room 505! There is a sign on the door~^^ Just tell them Ashley sent you~ [;)]

Crebeau Belle: (it takes an hr to get to this one) Take line #3 all the way to Jangbalsan (next to last stop on the line). Exit #2.. go straight out of the exit and cross the street. once across the street, immediately turn left and follow the sidewalk until you reach Burger King. Belle is on the second floor, right next to the burger king lobby (BK has 2 flrs). Here the staff all know me by name.. [;)] so if you tell them you're my friends they will be very happy~^^ If you want.. you can save this for saturday when I join you and I can introduce you to Su's Mom! [:D] ilsan~~~ Crebeau Jeff: Difficult and easy to get lost looking for this one.. and half the time she doesn't show up or let people in.. or maybe she just has a grudge against me and refuses to let me in.. Idk.. but call before you go to make sure she is there. 02-3431-6005 It is located in the "# Apartments" There is literally a HUGE # symbol on the top of the building. The easiest, least crowded and least confusing way is to take line #2, get off and Jamsillaro Station (the one right before Jamsil station) the walk out of the main exit. There is really only 1 exit cuz it's a small stop.. once you are out, look for an overpass.. keep this on your left and walk down the sidewalk. There will be a row of shops, then a wall along the sidewalk on your right with the road on your left and the overpass above it. You will cross 1 major street and keep going straight. The overpass is actually the subway rail so you are basically following it towards Jamsil station. Jeff is halfway between the two stations. Eventually, the rail line will begin to curve towards the right. about this time you should see a tall apartment building on your right with the # symbol on top. THAT'S the apt complex! Turn right and go under the archway that says The Star River on top and go into the building on the far left hand side, bldg 1 I believe. you have to use the dial pad to call the shop. punch in 0228 then hit the speaker button. It looks kind of like this *))) only a dot instead of a star. If she is there (and willing to let you in) then she will hit a button in her apt to let you in the building. Once inside, walk straight in to the elevators which will be on your left and go up to the 2nd flr. Step out of the elevator and head for room 228. There will be a sign on the door here as well.
