Girls Taking Picture at Lotte World Adventure Singapore South Korea VTL Itinerary

From a fairytale village to paragliding over mountains, here are 12 day trips out of Seoul to spruce up your next Korea itinerary ✨

Getting Around South Korea


Korail is one of Korea’s fastest and most convenient modes of travel, especially to areas outside of Seoul. The Korea Rail Pass (KR Pass) grants you unlimited trips within a stipulated timeframe of your choice.

Choose from a three or five-day consecutive pass, or the flexible pass to travel for two or four days within a 10 day period.

Book your passes online and pick them up at any metro station!

*Pro-tip: If you’re travelling in groups of two to five, get the group pass and save more.

Cost: From ~S$127.79

Rent a car

Friends Renting a Car from Seoul Singapore South Korea VTL Itinerary

Go at your own pace and rent a car. We booked our comfy four-wheeler via Klook and the entire process was so fuss-free. Even when we reshuffled our plans last minute, cancellation and rebooking were so simple — we were able to book a rental one day before ☺️

Be sure to download Naver Maps to navigate as Google Maps doesn’t work in Korea!

Note: iOS users need a registered Naver account to access driving routes.

Alternatively, go on day tours and have everything sorted — including two-way transportation and even meals sometimes!

If there’s any hike worth travelling out of the city for, it’s Seoraksan National Park, South Korea’s first and most iconic national park.

We rented a car for our trip here to explore areas around Seoraksan as well — more on that later!

With multiple hiking trails, 30 peaks, and countless sights along the way, Seoraksan National Park is a full-day affair.

Hiking up Stone Steps to Ulsanbawi Rock - Day trips out of Seoul

We hiked up to Ulsanbawi Rock, Seoraksan’s most famous hike known for its rocky peak and panoramic views. The hike usually takes two hours, but we took almost three — and we were rushing for sunset (there was no sunset, only mist 😭).

The many steep flights of stairs really slow you down. Thankfully, there are plenty of resting spots and vantage points to take a break!

Squeeze in another peak, Gwongeumseong Fortress. It only takes 15 minutes to ascend — including a five-minute cable car ride (~S$13)!


Although Seoraksan can be cleared in a day, skip the night drive back to Seoul and stay nearby in Sokcho.

Although these two theme parks are separate, Wolmi Theme Park is just an extension of My Land.
