Don’t get me wrong. Seoul, with its unique blend of tradition and colorful pop culture, hurried, bali-bali lifestyle, and vibrant, soju-filled nightlife, will always be one of my favorite cities in the world. Spending a summer in this crazy, energetic city was one of the best decisions I made in college. However, upon my return to Korea two years ago now, I have had the chance to discover a whole new side to this country that, frankly, doesn’t get a lot of press. Korea, from its harbor cities to its mural villages to its mountainous landscapes, is stunningly beautiful, and there is much more to be discovered than skyscrapers and fast internet. There’s a lot I still have on my list to visit, but for now I want to share some of the best places to visit outside of Seoul.
