When I went to South Korea, it was as a college student and as a participant in a special cultural exchange program, which meant that most of each day was already scheduled. It wasn't the typical travel experience, but we got to do a lot of fun things like visit the DMZ, attend a couple lectures at Yonsei University, tour a Hyundai factor, and take a taekowndo lesson, to name a few. I came out of it with a good, general sense of Korea and its history, but I definitely can't wait to go back on my own and get to know Seoul on a deeper and more personal level.
