Hiking is the Korean national sport, at least I heard that. This May I went hiking for the first time, in jeans and sneakers, and not up to a mountains peak, but I realized that hiking is a lot of fun. If you are looking for attractions in Seoul on the Internet, you will definitely find the Bukhansan National Park and the recommendation to hike to Baegundae Peak. Of course, I followed this advice and soon realized that hiking in Korea is a completely different thing than in the Saxony...

When I go to a city I've never visited before, I always look for the highest building I could visit. I really like the view you can have from the top floors of skyscrapers, that's why I love the Oriental Pearl Tower of Shanghai and the One World Observatory in New York. The Lotte World Tower isn't really high, compared to other buildings like the Burj Khalifa, but it offers so many opportunities to enjoy your time there.

The History of Korea has fascinated me for a long time, especially what happens in North Korea. A few years ago I read an article about a women, who fled from North Korea and wrote a book about her story. I didn't just read her book, but many others about the same topic and I was startled about the situation of the North Korean people. For me it was absolutely clear that I'd go on a tour to the demilitarized zone. It was the most important point on my bucket list and the event I was really...

Surprisingly, I did not get a jet lag in Seoul, which made me really happy because I was able to use the whole day without getting completely tired or oversleepe in the morning. Because I'm a little control freak, I did not have time for a jet-lag anyway - the vacation was already planned from start to finish. Our first destination was Gyeonbukgung Palace, as it was not far from our hotel by foot. Already on the way there, you could see that many tourists come here. Most of the signs were also...

This summer I fulfilled a long-awaited dream and finally flew to Seoul. My grandma just said: "Another Asian city! You were already in China. That's the same thing. " But that's totally not true. My fascination for China was awakened in childhood by stories like Jim Button, South Korea and the capital Seoul have a very different meaning for me. That's why it was a completely different thing to fly to Seoul, even though it was quite familiar there. K-pop and K-drama are to blame. I do not...

If you go to Beijing there is one thing you should definitely see: The Great Wall. During my vacation in China I stayed in the Drum Tower Hostel for a while and this hostel offers to book trips and guided tours to special places around Beijing. I had no idea how to get to the Great Wall, so I decided to book one of those trips to Badaling which was quite an experience. My Tour guide was called River, because the Chinese name is too hard to pronounce for foreigners. I have still no idea if River...
