This is the part 2 aka the last part of my South Korea diary, if you haven’t already make sure to check out the PART 1 to read more about day 1 until day 3 of this trip. There’s not much photos for this part as I chose to enjoy these places with my eyes instead of taking photos literally all the time. But I do film bits of these places and edited them into a vlog, you could watch the video on my youtube channel (‘Beatrix Rhea’) or click HERE.
We visited Grand Bronze Buddha at Shinheungsa Temple and prayed for awhile. Mount Sorak was our next stop. We took a cable car ride, which was kinda scary, for around 10 mins. Then we climbed to the top, and the view was amaaaazing. The clear blue sky and cliffs around us really amazed me. As I said in one of my Instagram posts, this place definitely has the most amazing view compared to another places we went. Next stop: Everland Theme Park. We were trapped for around 3 and half hours before arriving at Everland so there was not much to do. We took photos around the flower garden, watched Rio Movie in 4D, and had Italian food for dinner. Just a reminder, like any other restaurants inside any theme park, the food here are not cheap. We got back to Seoul again that night before 10 pm and checked in to our hotel.

Our last full day on Seoul was spent mostly for shopping. There were some duty-free shops that we had to go (yes, had to), one of them was this shop where they sell different Korean brands cosmetics. My mom bought so many things from this brand called Odbo, which is so popular there according to our guide. We headed to ginseng shop after that, where an Indonesian woman who works there explained about their products and the process of growing ginseng. South Korea is known for producing the best ginseng in the world compared to other country like China and America. Then we went to Shilla Duty Free, a pretty big shopping mall selling lots of stuffs, from fashion, fragrance, to cosmetics. This place was so packed – full of tourists. Another shopping mall that we visited was the one in Dongdaemun. You could buy souvenirs with affordable price here. Then we went to watch Nanta Show, and I highly recommend you to watch it as well whenever you visit Seoul. This non-verbal show was so funny and entertaining, I laughed til my stomach hurt! Not even kidding. Our last destination for the day was Myeongdong, famous shopping district in Seoul. I wish we had the whole day to shop at this place because it was so big and they have literally everything there, but the fact that we only got like 3 hours still annoyed me. Note that Myeongdong is the right place if you want to try Korean street food like tteokbokki (rice cake) or any other snacks.

We visited N Seoul Tower to see the famous love locks, walked (read: climbed) for like 10 minutes from the parking area, then headed straight to Incheon airport. Another thing to note, always arrive early to explore the duty free shops!
