Spring and Cherry Blossom
Everyone loves to see flowers and for me the best time to visit Korea is to enjoy the cherry blossoms where you walk under the trees full of flowers.  Going to the mountains are undoubtedly the best place to enjoy spring outdoors but need not to go far as you can enjoy your leisure walk under these beautiful canopies of spring bloom in the city!

Nami Island
A tiny island yet famous due to the shooting of Korean most popular drama Winter Sonata and known as an oasis for culture and leisure in peaceful harmony with humanity and nature. With 5 minutes ferry ride, you are already in the forest with verdant trees holding up the sky and open grassy areas where you can easily see rabbits, squirrels, peacocks and chipmunks and of course wild flowers. I would definitely be lying on the grass and look to the sky to really appreciate it or maybe if allowed I will be rolling on the ground too...hehe.

Everland and Tulip
This is the place for the thrill at the amusement park and see the beauty colorful Tulip, roses and maybe lillies at the Four Seasons Garden.  Everland also has Herbivore Safari where you can see the wild such as tigers, lions in front of your eyes! and the heart pounding rides such as T Express and perhaps have the chance for the Spring festive here too.

Gyeongbokgung Palace
This is the place must visit place! The palace was built in 1395 is main royal palace of the Joseon dynasty and the most beautiful and largest palace in Korea from the other 5 grand palaces. However, the palace is not in its original state because of several wars it underwent. The exciting session will be the royal guard changing ceremony not to be missed out.  Here you will witness the traditional Korean scene during ancient times. The parade with colorful traditional uniform complete with weapons, accessories and the routine is the feast to the eyes of every tourist.  Each session takes about 20mins with 3 schedules per day at 10am, 1pm and 3pm.  I bet everyone will feel the same excitement.

The Opening and Closing of the Royal Palace Gates and Royal Guard Changing Ceremonies (수문장 교대의식)

Bukchon Hanok Village
The name Bukchon translates to "northen village" and this village is home to hundreds of traditional houses, called hanok where these days these hanoks operate as cultural centers, guesthouses, retaurants and tea houses that provide tourist with an opportunity to experience, learn and immerse in Korean traditional culture.  I wanted to be here so much to experience wearing the traditional Korean drress "hanbok" and feeling like an ancient times princess, pretty and rich LOL and the most of course it will be my most unique and memorable experience

imagine me in this hanbok...pretty yeah
Cheonggyecheon Stream
Very interesting and so different when a stream was made as a park located in the middle of the road.  The atmosphere is so different and the best time to be here is during spring and summer.  Here we can just relax and feel the cool breeze with water flowing clean and most importantly to escape from the hectic urban living.  The air is free and the awesome scenery is also free

N Seoul Tower
This 236.7m high communication and observation tower located on the Mt Namsan in Central Seoul and surrounded by many other attractions including Namsan Park and Namsangol Hanok village.

What do they have here? First go up by cable car and down by shuttle bus or vice versa or at your choice. Here there are the Gift shops, the Alive Museum, Memshot, cafes, Teddy Bear Museum, revolving restaurant, the digital observatory, the Wishing Pond and Locks of Love at the Roof Terrace! There is so much here to attract visitors.

If you are lucky, you may catch the sunset here too.

The Tower illuminated in blue from sunset to midnight on days when the air quality in Seoul is 45 or less and during Spring it lit up for 52 days..awesome right!

Food, banana milk and kimchi
A holiday is not complete when you do not try their food especially kimchi and banana milk in Korea. Perhaps takeaway of dosiraks (Korean packed lunches) if you really don't have time.  There are many Halal Muslim eateries located in Seoul, tasty and healthy!
