On November 20th, with early Christmas carols ringing on the streets in Korea, 3 YG members and 3 exchange students visited Namsan Tower located in Yongsan-gu, Seoul. Since it was a time when the coronavirus had increased again, we never took off our masks except when we took pictures. In fact, the official name of Namsan Tower is Namsan Seoul Tower, which Koreans usually call Namsan Tower....
On a beautiful day in fall, four Yonsei Global club members and three exchange students from Sweden and Germany went to Seoul Forest which is a large park famous for its scenery. The whole program took about 4-5 hours, including the time we spent on the metro headed to Seoul Forest. Seoul Forest definitely has a different vibe from the other famous attractions of Seoul, and there are many popular restaurants and coffee shops nearby.
Although it is usually pretty cold around mid-November, the day we went to Seoul Forest was pretty warm so it was the perfect weather to enjoy outdoor activities. The red, yellow, and orange tree leaves were beautiful, and there were a lot of cute dogs running around. We took a short walk around the park and took pictures.
Next, we rented bicycles and had fun while enjoying the scenery and riding bikes. Since Seoul is a crowded city, one of the exchange students told me that it was nice to spend time in a more peaceful and eco-friendly environment. Another exchange student brought his camera, which I think was a great idea since Seoul Forest was so beautiful that day!
After riding bikes for approximately an hour, we went to a Shabu-shabu (hot pot) restaurant to eat dinner. The leader of our team made reservations for the restaurant so we did not have to wait to sit down. It was very filling and yummy, and the menus were not too spicy so it was a nice choice for everyone.
