The Selfish Guide to Seoul
Mr. Selfish and I only spent five short days in Seoul, South Korea. We ended up enjoying Seoul a lot more than we thought we would and are definitely planning on taking more trips to South Korea in the future. Here’s our Google map for Seoul:

As for sights, I highly recommend Changdeokgung Palace although I didn’t feel that the extra cost for the Secret Garden was worth it.
I also really enjoyed the Gyeongbokgung Palace, particularly the changing of the guards outside the front gate and the National Folk Museum of Korea.
Although it wasn’t very historical, the Trickeye Museum was tons of fun (especially if you enjoy taking goofy photos like me and Mr. Selfish).
Last but not least, we enjoyed all of the amazing food we had in South Korea. We savored all of the bulgogi, galbi, and bibimbap we had, but my favorite was actually the spicy chicken soup we had at Myeongdong Dakhanmari. On the other hand, Mr. Selfish’s favorite was the crispy and delicious chicken wings we had at HanChu Fried Chicken.
