Here’s 5 Romantic Beautiful Places in Korea you must visit

Share Breathtaking Viewgs off the Tongyeong Cable Car

The views of the beautiful green islands in the ocean waters of Tongyeong are definitely one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. Take a romantic cable car ride up the mountain to get a stunning 360-view of the blue water with dozens of lush green islands scattered for miles and miles. Being located in the very south of Korea, Tongyeong promises great weather and lots of sunshine.

Hang Up a Lovelock at Seoul Tower

If you decide to spend Valentine’s Day in the capital, why not do one of Korea’s most romantic night places? Featured in dramas such as My Love from the Star, the lovelocks at Seoul Tower are one of the most romantic ways to show your significant other how much you love them. You can buy a lock at the souvenir shop next to the tower, or bring your own, and write a cute message on it. Then, lock it on the gates and you love will last forever!

Have a Romantic Stroll at the Suwon Fortress

The beautiful fortress area of Suwon has become one of my favorite getaways from Seoul. I find it extremely romantic, to wander along the old city walls and explore the four major gates which used to protect the city from intruders. This area also promises spectacular sunsets. From the top of the mountain platform, you have a stunning view of the entire city. You will not be disappointed!

Have a Picnic at Haeundae Beach in Busan

The city of Busan is one of my favorites and always makes for a great weekend trip. Everyone raves about Haeundae beach but have you ever though about having a picnic there? Even in February, the city attracts with slightly higher temperatures than Seoul and is not full of tourists as it is in the summer months.

Wander Through Jeonju Hanok Village

My husband and I spent many fun day trips in Jeonju – it’s always a hit! This traditional Korean village boasts dozens of hanok, Korean traditional houses and is a super romantic place with lots of things to eat, see and do! How about a Korean calligraphy course, or wearing traditional Korean hanbok dress for the day? Be sure to try the famous Jeonju bibimbap rice bowl and munch your way through the endless food stalls!

Bonus: Cherry Blossoms in Jinhae

Since the cherry blossom season is relatively short with only 2-3 weeks in full bloom, you need to be quick if you want to take a trip to see them. The best place to see them is probably Jinhae, on the southern tip of Korea. This city transforms into a white/pink ocean of blossoms since the trees are planted literally everywhere across the town. For a detailed Jinhae itinerary and to find out when to see them, check out my other post. The trip down to Jinhae is definitely worth it and one of the most romantic places in Korea.

      Suwon is really pretty. I wanna go back in spring and check it out more. It’s a place to wander around and get lost in beautiful alleys ๐Ÿ˜€
