Besides it’s amazing natural beauty and outdoor hiking trails, Jeju Island is also famous for it’s many museums and theme parks around the island. One of its most recent attractions is the new exhibition hall, Hello Kitty Island. A new complex built to indulge in the ultra-cute world of Sanrio’s most beloved character…Hello Kitty! I first heard of the place two years ago when I spotted it on Instagram. As fate would have it, I was going to spend a weekend in Jeju….and Hello Kitty Island was on top of my to do list!
In continuing with my obsession with cherry blossom season, I decided to go check out the Spring Flower Festival in Yeouido. Yeouido is an area located in the bustling city of Seoul, South Korea. It’s also an island! For all the years I had been living here I didn’t even know. However the -do part should have given it away as it mean Island in Korean.
Namsan Tower or also known as Seoul Tower, is the iconic broadcasting station that lies atop Namsan mountain that is situated in the middle of Seoul Tower. It has now become a part of Seoul’s landscape and a major tourist attraction. The main feature of the tower are its 360 degree views of the city, so it’s best to go up on clear days.
