Seoul with Kids: 6D5N Itinerary

Hubby and I are huge fans of Running Man, a long-running variety show from South Korea. And each time we watch, we will end up cooking ramyeon to feed the cravings we get from watching them eat. And so a trip to Seoul is inevitable!

We took Korean Air, which we highly recommended as it is a direct flight. And as Korean Air passengers, we are entitled to some discounts in Seoul! E.g. We were entitled to 30% to Lotte World tickets! Read here to see what we did in Lotte World and check here for the full list of benefits of Korean Air Excellent Boarding Pass.

The weather is colder (below 10 Degrees Celsius) than we expected and we forgo many outdoor activities that we originally planned. E.g. Everland, Seoul Grand Park (with zoo) and strawberry picking. I reckon these will make for a more fun trip during warmer times in April (strawberry picking is only till June). So you can probably consider these for your own trip!

Day 1: Arrival | Gwangjang Market | Myeong Dong | Maple Tree House BBQ | Cat Playground

Day 4: Namdaemun | Dongdaemun Toy Market

It’s another shopping day! Now I realised why South Korea is so popular, so many places to shop!

Namdaemun is the largest traditional market in Korea and when night falls, it is also a wholesale market. You can find all sorts of items here, think of it like the Chatuchak in Bangkok (read more)

Day 5: Lotte World
