Planning for South Korea - comments please

Jump to last reply

Here's my first pass at an itinerary (listing overnights) for the South Korea leg of my RTW. Same background info as for the Japan leg: I'm early 60s, solo female. I'm not really into big cities, neon, nightlife or shopping - although I love markets. I also love mountains, waterfalls and rocky coastline, and I'm interested in architecture, religion and especially food. I prefer crafts - glass, textiles, ceramics, jewelry - to fine arts.

Sun Oct 10 - Arrive Seoul Gimpo 10:40 am
Mon Oct 11 - Seoul
Tue Oct 12 - Travel via Chuncheon and Lake Soyang (bus, boat, bus) to Sokcho/Seoraksan National Park
Wed Oct 13 - Outer Seorak
Thu Oct 14 - Southern Seorak

Note: I'd like to visit both Outer and Southern Seorak. Since I'd have to head out of the park from Outer Seorak to get a bus back in to Southern Seorak I'm wondering about spending three nights in Sokcho instead of staying closer to the park. Maybe two nights at Outer Seorak and the last night at Sokcho - I don't like one nighters, but I'd like to get a head start on the travel on the 15th.

Fri Oct 15 - Taebaek (bus and train)
Sat Oct 16 - Taebaek, day trip to Jeongseon

Note: My first thought was two nights at Samcheok with a visit to Jeongseon on the way to Danyang, but the beaches round Samcheok don't sound that great, and I can visit a cave at Danyang (the other reason to visit Samcheok). I'd prefer to visit Jeongseon during the week, as if I hit the autumn colors there are likely to be lots of people around, but something has to fall on the weekend.

Sun Oct 17 - Danyang
Mon Oct 18 - Danyang, visit Guinsa
Tue Oct 19 - Seoul (via Suwon if there's a left luggage possibility)
Wed Oct 20 - Seoul - possible day trip to an island
Thu Oct 21 - Fly out of Incheon at 9:30 am

BTW, the Korean Tourism web site has links to English language timetables for long distance buses and trains - very much appreciated!
