Top 5 Souvenirs You Should Buy in Korea

기념품1

What do you usually buy as souvenirs when you travel other countries? Small magnets? Cards? Or key chains? You may have had an experience of buying some souvenirs that only took a large portion of your suitcase and never looking at them again. So, Trazy recommends you the top 5 souvenirs from Korea that you won’t regret buying at all.


One of my favorite places to eat in Cheonan is the ramen...









One of my favorite places to eat in Cheonan is the ramen restaurant, 멘야마쯔리. The service is excellent, the prices are reasonable, and it’s a fun place to go to with friends. They have two ramen choices, regular for 5,500₩ and spicy curry for 7,000₩. They have non-ramen choices, such as gyoza and fried rice, as well.


Ramen Gone Wild

Ramen is serious business in Asia.  Korean grocery stores devote aisles to it, and many of my students name it as their favorite food.  On our recent trip to Fukuoka, we discovered the Japanese are perhaps even more zealous than the Koreans in their love of noodles.  

First, in Canal City, there is a place called Ramen Stadium, which is a store/museum devoted entirely to noodle soups.  You can learn about and sample all the major brands of ramen there.  

However, the most surreal and just plain weird experience we have ever had in eating out occurred here:  Image


Fukuoka, Japan Day 1

This summer vacation we wanted to get out of Korea for a few days and didn’t want to spend a ton of money. I still had NEVER been to Japan, so we decided now was the time! :D We had a great 3 days in Fukuoka, and wanted to share our trip through photos and videos. We ate the famously delicious Hakata ramen, saw old castle ruins, and took the Asahi Brewery tour! We can’t wait to go back again, we were surprised at how easy it was to go to Fukuoka by boat! We will have another blog post soon about how to travel there by boat, so be on the look out for that. :)


Busan Food Journal, Part Three


Korean Ramen

Dumplings, soju, grilled ribs, stews, chicken and lots of kimchi were on the table this week. We’re starting to get the hang of Korean food, and discovering what we love, and some things we don’t. Last week, we concentrated on restaurants around our neighborhood, Suyeong and Gwangalli Beach, but these dishes can be found on just about every corner of Busan.


Somaemuldo View

Sometimes you just want to hop a 7 a.m. boat from Tongyeong, down a bowl of spicy ramen on an island called Somaemuldo, hike up a massive hill, and park your body on a grassy slope all afternoon, watching the rocks shift colour in the sun.

It's a cheesy infomercial for ramen in Korea! Sure, our tastes are different than a Korean's taste, which is why we made this video, SO PLEASE DON'T CONSIDER US INSULTING AND INFIDELS FOR NOT LIKING THE SAME RAMEN AS YOU! Otherwise, Bon Appetite!
