It has been exactly one year since this new chapter of my life has started in Korea. Since then I have been able to get to know more about this beautiful country, visit many wonderful places, try to learn its difficult language and interesting culture, as well as meet a lot of lovely people.
After a year, I thought I have seen most of everything. But Korea still surprises me with many new things everyday.
Thank you very much for following me on my adventure in Korea, which will not over soon… 😘
There are not so many options to survive the winter in Seoul for rock climbers. I mean, while boulder gyms seem to be easy to find, in door rock climbing walls can rarely be found in the city. Unfortunately, K2 gym and the DYNO wall were closed forever 😭.
However, if you don’t mind to go to Incheon, I have another good option for you: the Discovery Climbing Square (DCS ICN).
Tomorrow (February 14th) is the well-known Valentine’s day, day for loving people 💝. Well, do you know how Korean people celebrate this day? Do they also give their beloved chocolates or roses?
That would be too boring for the “crazy” Korean folks, right 😆? Indeed… That’s why they don’t celebrate the day for loving couple only once per year, but once per month 😲. That means 12 Valentine’s days a year! But how? Let’s check it out!
The winter in Korea is simply cold and windy and it’s going to be even colder. But at least the sun shines everyday. Don’t worry if you already plan to come to Seoul during the winter time. There are a lot of interesting activities to discover the city as well. Here is my list of things to do for you, just in case…
Watching Seoul from an observation deck
I love to go to a higher place and watch over everything moving below. It always amazes me, how beautiful, complicated but also tiny everything looks from above.
In Seoul there are many observation decks you should visit, especially when the sky is clear:
Lotte World Tower
The Lotte World Tower is location on the south side of the Han river but you can see it from almost everywhere in Seoul. Because this is the highest building in Korea and the 5th tallest (2018) in the world.
To be honest, recently it’s not really enjoyable in Seoul. It’s too cold, windy and the air quality is so bad 😔. How about escape to a warmer place? Vietnam, Philippines, Thailand, etc. are quite close to Korea, aren’t they? Let’s consider Cebu, a tropical island of the Philippines.
