Traveller Stories in Korea
Busan Museum! When visiting different countries one of my favourite things to do is visit local museums and until this week I was unaware that Busan even had its own museum! The museum is located in the Daeyeon area, about 10-minute walk from Daeyeon subway station. The museum building itself is beautiful and is a lot bigger than I had Continue Reading . . .

Every year there is a Christmas festival held in Nampo! It’s the perfect cure for homesickness at this time of the year. The atmosphere was brilliant and will definitely end your holiday blues.

Gamchoen can be pretty difficult to find so I’ll explain the best way we found to get there. First you’re going to want to Continue Reading . . .
