Museums in South Korea

Top Places To Visit

Whether you are here to pay your respects or simply to admire the architecture and the sea that envelopes this temple, you will not expect anything quite so similar. I found this temple had more life than Seoul's Gyeongbokgung Palace, perhaps due to the perfect complement of history and nature, with it situated right by the sea.Again, I would advise to make this your first destination of the day as it is far out of the city centre to the North of Busan. Furthermore, it is a popular tourist destination, so expect heaps of crowd as the day goes.

Cheongyecheon is significantly prettier in the spring/summer than the winter, but the area is still lovely to walk through. Seoul is known for its unique and sculptured architecture, and this area is a great place to check out some of the more awesome buildings. It has the Cheongyecheon Stream that you can follows stairs to walk alongside, as well as several cute coffee shops and the Korean Tourism Center. It also houses the Culture Street, a cute little street filled with traditional restaurants.

It’s the national museum, need I say more? The Museum has approximately 15,000 beautiful exhibits from around the world, but it is particularly awesome in the area of Asian history. It has of course all the really important Korean artifacts, including Celadon, Calligraphy, Paintings, and several private collections. But it also has stuff from India, Japan, China, Indonesia, and beyond. There is an entire room of stunning and impressive Buddha statues. There are also several halls of paintings, statues, artifact, and cultural resources. This is definitely a must see (particularly for someone like me who would spend most of their travel time studying history)! Tips • Lockers–If you’ve done any shopping earlier or want to leave your bags somewhere,the museum has rows of lockers available for 100 Won (10 cents). • Skip the guided tour–There are tours available for English, Japanese, and Chinese speakers, but you can figure it all out yourself, and the timing is hard to maneuver. • Try out the tea garden!–There is a lovely little tea garden on one of the upper floors that makes for a great afternoon respite! • Watch your time– We skipped the first couple rooms in the Korean history section. It’s all that early man stuff that is the same in all museums–arrows, rock weapons, etc. The cooler stuff is a little down when Korean culure really developed • Save time for the world history section!–This area has a great deal to offer and shouldn’t be overlooked! Extra Information • Pricing–FREE! • Directions o Taxi: Give the taxi driver the address. o Subway: Seoul Subway Line 4 & Jungang Line. Arrive at Ichon Station and take Exit 2. This will connect directly to the museum entrance. • Operating Hours (they close the ticket booth 1 hour before closing) o Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday: 9:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. o Wednesday & Saturday: 9:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m. o Sunday, Holidays: 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.

The Teddy Bear MuseumOf course there is a teddy bear museum on Jeju Island. Apparently, lots of people are actually into vintage, unique teddy bears and some of the more unique ones are on display on Jeju's very own Teddy Bear Museum.Ripley's Believe It Or NotI am normally not into franchise museums, but on an island like Jeju, a place full of strange, unbelievable artefacts and stories seems oddly intriguing. Definitely adding this to my list.Costs and budgetingThe local currency in South Korea is the Korean Won, and as per the current exchange rate (as of February, 2017), 100 KRW is approximately 6 INR. Here's the full breakdown for a 7-day trip to Jeju Island (budget to midrange).Return flight to Jeju Island: Between 25,000 to 40,000 INRDaily budget for accommodation: Between 1000 to 2000 INRDaily budget for food and transport: Between 1000 to 2000 INRRough budget for a 7-day trip to Jeju Island: 42,000 to 72,000 INRI hope this guide convinces you to visit Jeju Island. If you've already been there, share your own guide or hit me up if you have any questions.
