If you’re a regular reader of Seeing Sunshine, you know my husband spent a year stationed in South Korea. While he was there, I was able to visit for two months. Each month I visited, we took advantage of being on the other side of the world and traveled.
The average person will not get to travel to places like China or Thailand. When you are stationed in Asia, you are so close to these places, you have to see them. It’s one perk of military life! Flights to these locales are a lot cheaper because you are physically closer, making the flights shorter.
There are two main trips we recommend taking while you are in South Korea. I am sharing about these two specifically because they are inexpensive and full of fun.
Don’t Miss These Two Trips
Instead of eating turkey on Thanksgiving, Travis and I took a flight to the Philippines. We stayed on the island of Boracay, which was absolutely beautiful. Travis went scuba diving while I enjoyed the beach. We got to drive a dune buggy up a mountain, saw breathtaking views, enjoyed a ride through the ocean on a catamaran boat (and got soaked!), went swimming in a secluded area, ate local food, had a spa day, and so much more. And we were only there for a few days!
Travis loves scuba diving, so he took a trip to Bali, Indonesia specifically to scuba dive. But he did all sorts of other fun things while he was there, too. If you’ve ever wanted to hang out with monkeys in the wild, here’s your chance! Travis went to the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary, which is full of monkeys. Hold onto your hat … literally!
Check out all of the things he did in Bali here.
Other places you might want to visit while stationed in South Korea include China, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia, India, or even Australia.
