A quick stop in Seoul

When were we there

✈️ Flight from Osaka to Seoul
🏨 Metro Hotel


  • Gyeongbokgung Palace
  • Food and shopping!

Our stop in Seoul was short but fun. We weren’t planning to stop in Korea but our friend Joe urged us to. Glad we did! Seoul has a similar energy to Tokyo, and great food. Transportation is easy, people are very nice, and there are some great sights to see.

Unlike Japan:

  • People speak more English and are more touristy friendly
  • There are way fewer tourists, so it feels more authentic
  • The food is *spicy* which we love
  • It’s way cheaper

I don’t think Korea is on many people’s travel lists, but I think it should be. I wouldn’t pick it over Japan, but it’s a great addition. I’m hoping we can return in the future for a longer stay.
