We kick things off in this video with a day trip to Gyeongju from Busan which ended up being a shot bus ride. Gyeongju is one of the most famous places to visit in Korea as it was the capital of the former ancient Silla kingdom. In Gyeongju the most famous attraction to visit are the burial tombs, many of which belong to former royalty. Overall, you can do a quick highlight of Gyeongju on a day-trip; however, for in-depth exploration, I’d recommend at least a full day or two to properly explore.
For dinner, we go to try Korean Chinese Food where sampled delicious Korean noodles with black bean sauce (Jajangmyeon – 자장면), sweet and sour breaded pork, pan-fried dumplings and red spicy seafood soup.
Thank you to KTO for making this trip possible!

Eating Korean Chinese Food Trying Jjajangmyeon (짜장면) + Day Trip to Gyeongju, Korea:
Hey guys! We are Samuel and Audrey, a vlogging travel couple from Canada. In this travel channel we share our travel and food vlogs while touring the world.
Our most recent trip was to South Korea where I embarked upon a two-week adventure without Audrey. Invited as part of a YouTube vlogging trip, organized by KTO, I spent the first week traveling with other YouTubers in Seoul, Busan and Gyeongju. My second week included independent exploration of Korea with my good friend and fellow YouTuber David of DavidsBeenHere.
Having lived and traveled in South Korea, the chance to return to one of my favorite countries was one of the biggest surprises of 2019. On this particular trip, I had an opportunity to do many things I had not previously covered including a visit to the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone between South Korea and North Korea), a Buddhist Temple Stay and a Korean cooking class. It was almost as if the program designed by KTO knew exactly what I had missed out on before.
Obviously, a huge highlight from the two weeks I spent revisiting Korea was the food. I feasted on all of my favorite Korean dishes including Korean barbecue, dolsot bibimbap, haemul pajeon, tteokbokki, bulgogi, kimbap and many others. I can honestly say that Korean food is world-class and is one of my top 5 favorite cuisines in the world. Aside from trying familiar dishes, I had the opportunity to sample raw Korean seafood for the first time.
While visiting Seoul, highlights included going to Gyeongbokgung Palace, Namsan Seoul Tower, Jogyesa Temple and Hongdae. As one of the biggest cities in the world, I barely scratched the surface of things to do in Seoul.
Spending extended time in Busan was my favorite part about the trip with top highlights including a Korean temple stay, fresh fish markets and a Korean baseball game. It was from Busan that we ended up taking a day-trip to Daegu where we enjoyed a traditional Korean market and tried Galbi-Jjim for the first time.
