Then, I flew to Seoul, South Korea. I spent the next few weeks in Korea, first exploring Seoul, taking in the city’s vibrant culture. From there, I headed south to the amazing experience of the Jinju Lantern Festival. My next stop was in Busan, where I took a day trip to Gyeongju (and also experienced my second typhoon of the trip). Next, I traveled back north to Sokcho, where I was able to see some changing leaves & hike in the spectacular Seoraksan National Park. After heading back to Seoul, I had a long layover in Tokyo before heading home. Along the way, I ate a ton of amazing food & tried the best craft beer in every city.
Here are all of my posts from my trip to South Korea & Japan:
