Some of the best bucket list experiences in South Korea would include eating one’s way through Seoul’s amazing street food scene, visiting at least one of Seoul’s 5 grand palaces or heading to the DMZ (demilitarized zone) on the border with North Korea.  Enjoy some fantastic outdoor adventures such as hiking in one of South Korea’s many national parks.
