SeoulTheJourney wants to start by saying – it is a delight to be back!
We missed you!
We enjoyed 2022, a year exploring all things Korean across Canada and Europe – let’s not forget South Korea. We took a break over the new year period and even had the chance to enjoy the chilly weather of Canada!
In 2023, we are looking forward to showing our readers even more!
We are delighted to continue our relationship with the Korean Culture Centre in Ottawa.
In other news, we launched a new blog focusing on our attempt to learn Korean and a few other languages. Please join the adventure but note that the blog just started.
Seoul Forest Park
With our little 2023 introduction complete, we will introduce you to the beautiful green landscape of Seoul Forest Park (not least because Canada is remarkably cold and snowy!
Seoul Forest is a must-visit park in the heart of the city, and we recommend a visit during the Cherry Blossom and autumn months (fall). If you are planning a trip to Korea in the near future, be sure to check out the link and to explore this map:
Seoul Forest opened in June 2005 and is home to over 400,000 trees and many different animals – enjoy the energy and space, at an investment of 235 billion KRW.
Take the chance to explore and check out the artworks scattered across the park. If you enjoy insects, there is a treat for you – the Insect Garden.

If time allows, we suggest checking out our blog for some more ideas in this area. Next we will jump on the metro to enjoy a lovely coffee at the stylish coffee shop in Jongno, Felt.
Felt seemingly a modern trendy cafe that bounced into the office district of Jongno from nowhere – Felt has a lovely story!
Felt was originally a coffee shop found in Changjeon-dong – it all started in an old piano school. Take the chance to read about the cafe and take the opportunity to enjoy an afternoon coffee in a vibrant city basement!
