DD will be in S. Korea for 2 years, ideas on interesting places?

Jump to last reply

Hello all, I'm from the Europe side of the Fodors forum, but I guess I'll be visiting here a fair amount over the next couple of years. My Soldier/Daughter has just been posted to S. Korea for the next two years. It was one of her "dream sheet" locations. Before she joined the military she has previously been to Japan and numerous trips to Europe.

She loves history, culture, theater, scenery and trying out new things. She prefers learning about the people over bar-hopping, which I know can be a big problem with our soldiers in S. Korea. Cold is no problem, as she attended college in upstate NY and heat is no problem as she was raised in Florida and Nevada.

So, for those of you who can help this old poster from the other side of the board, :-) , what are some interesting and even off-beat things she can do and look forward to while there? What are some cultural things she should NOT do?

One nice part about being in Korea is that she gets a fairly sizable number of holidays and leave, so she is by no means limited to just Korea and hopes to also be able to do some substantial country hopping while over. I was very surprised to learn that they allow U.S. military personnel to visit China, so this is something that she is really looking forward to.

Thank you all in advance,

dave
