Attractions that I want to Experience when I visit South Korea

I wish when I have the opportunity to finally go to South Korea I can visit most of the places I’m planning to visit. But since there’s so much to do and see, a mere week stay wouldn’t suffice. Besides doing a BTS location pilgrimage of some sort and hopefully watch the BTS concert in Busan this October, these are the attractions that are quite the priority for me to visit in South Korea: ⁣

Gyeongbokgung - first, largest and main royal palaces of the Joseon dynasty. Built in 1395, it is located in northern Seoul, South Korea. I would love to wear a hanbok  the traditional and national costume of of South Korea while touring Gyeongbokgung (it's not Gyeongbokgung palace btw, because gung means palace in Korean)

Location: 161 Sajik-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea

Starfield Library CoEx - located in the center of COEX Mall, Starfield Library is an open public space with hundreds of books available for reading. I would love to roam around and take insta-worthy pics at Starfield Library CoEx!

Location: 06164  513, Yeongdong-daero, Gangnam-gu, Seoul

Cheonggyecheon Stream Park - is a 10.9-kilometre-long (6.8 mi) modern public recreation space in downtown Seoul, South Korea. I saw this place in one of the episodes from Korean Englishman on Youtube and I want to chill at the Cheonggyecheon Stream Park while eating legit Korean street food!

Location: 1 Cheonggyecheon-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul

Greem Cafe  - this unique cafe, with its 2D concept, creates the illusion of being in a cartoon and FYI it was actually based in a cartoon called W. It's super insta-worthy so I might take lots of photos when I visit Greem 2D Cafe!

Location: 03980  161-10, Seongmisan-ro, Mapo-gu, Seoul

Orukdo Skywalk - one of the many free-admission attractions in South Korea where the cantilever walkway has a glass floor offering views of the sea & Oryukdo island. I would love to experience the beauty of the sea inn this unique Orukdo Skywalk in Busan

Location:  137 Oryuk-doro, Nam-gu, Busan

Nami Island - is a half-moon shaped river island located in Chuncheon, Gangwon Province, and was formed as the land around it was inundated by the rising water of the North Han River as the result of the construction of Cheongpyeong Dam in 1944. It's also the filming location of Winter Sonata - one of the best K-dramas there is. I would love to experience the beautiful Autumn foliage at Nami Island especially that it's my fave season and I have never experienced it. 

Location:  Namisum-gil, Namsan-myeon, Chuncheon-si, Gangwon-do

Yonggungsa Temple - is a Buddhist temple that was built in 1376 during the Goryeo Dynasty, and was originally known as Bomun Temple. The temple complex is a large one and one of few in Korea to be set on the seaside. I would like to check out the picturesque Yonggungsa Temple. 

Location: 86 Yonggung-gil, Gijang-gun, Busan

Gamcheon Cultural Village - is known for its layered streets, twisted labyrinth-like alleys, and brightly painted houses. Built on a steep mountain-side slope, the village has been nicknamed "Korea's Santorini," as well as the "Machu Picchu of Busan". I would like to check out the colorful village of Gamcheon in Busan⁣!

Location: 200 Gamnae 1(il)-ro, Saha-gu, Busan

⁣BTS Concert in Busan - the world's biggest boyband will hold a concert tis coming October as part of the bid to host the World Expo in 2030. Tickets will be raffled off to fan club membershi holders. I would love to see BTS in concert in Busan!!! *crossing fingers*

Location: Busan Ilgwang special stage, Gijang-gun, Busan

There’s so much more but this is what I can only fit in this post! Btw, If you’re given the chance to visit South Korea, which places or attractions do you want to visit or experience?⁣
