I myself love trekking my land, Korea every corner. and I’ve been thinking whenever I visit some special local places where I personally visit often, it will be very nice if I could introduce such a fantastic place to my foreign friends. Now I am sure I have plenty of interesting places, off the beaten path that have worth to see in Seoul and its capital area.
