Day 2: Seoul City WallWe climbed the Seoul City Wall today! This is one of my favourite things to do in Korea. I'm surprised I didn't hear much about it before doing research for this trip. See, South Korea is not just good for shopping! I had so much fun climbing the wall. The Seoul City Wall was built around the ancient capital in 1396 by the founder of the Joseon Dynasty, King Taejo. The wall is built along the ridges of four mountains (Bugaksan, Naksan, Namsan, and Ingwangsan), linking them together in a big circle, and there's a walking trail on it. From the Seoul City Wall, you can find the hiking trails to climb up these mountains. There are also many historical places of importance along the way that you can visit. So much to do!
