As Seen On

Letter from the Founder

Hi, I’m Keith Kim, founder of Seoulistic.com. Thank you for stopping by the site.
I started Seoulistic because of my own personal travel experiences.

When I went to Japan, my friend took me to an hot spring next to Mt. Fuji.
We were bathing in the natural hot springs outdoor with a perfect view of Mt. Fuji with the snow falling beautifully.

When I went to Taiwan, my friend took me to a locally famous restaurant with authentic aborigine Taiwanese chefs that made unique seafood dishes that I had never seen before.

When I went to Thailand, my friend took me to her local temple where the monks were pacing back and forth extremely slowly. She explained that they were concentrating on each individual step to practice mindfulness.

There’s no way I would have been able to find all of those awesome experiences on my own. They require local knowledge, local language and local understanding. But because of my local friends, I was able to make beautiful, life-long memories.

Of course, when my friends visit me here in Korea, I want to give them the same type of awesome experiences that I had. While I can’t be your Japan or Taiwan local, I can definitely be your Korea local. And that’s why I created Seoulistic.com. Here at Seoulistic, you'll find insider travel information, insights into Korean culture, and helpful tips for even living in Korea.

Here's to exploring Korea together, Sincerely
