A few weeks ago, I went on a trip to Seoul, South Korea.
To be honest, I didn't expect much from this trip because there are many similarities between South Korea and Japan, including shops, buildings, and food choices.
Why did I choose South Korea for my vacation? Simple reasons... The plane ticket was affordable and it only takes about 2 hours to get there!
I'm glad I went because I had a really good time! The food was great and there were many people who spoke Japanese in the places I visited, so I didn't have to worry about miscommunication.
What I find interesting is that, although there are many similarities in terms of atmosphere, some things are totally different. For example, in Japan, a lot of people hold their plates/rice bowl up while eating, but not in Korea. In Korea, all plates and bowls remain on the table and you have to use a spoon to have soup, unlike Japanese people who usually hold their soup bowl and eat it directly from there.
Anyway, if you ever have a chance to visit South Korea, I recommend trying Korean food because it is so delicious and affordable! Shopping is a lot of fun too! Because I didn't have much time to spend in Korea last time, I'm going back there again this month! So I can experience more of Korea.
Here are some more photos I took when I was there.
