Gosh, time has flown by again! But we sure are glad that September is here – the weather has been nice and chilly, hasn’t it? I’m not sure about you but we love autumn/fall and we’re excited to get out and about.
Check out our September activity calendar – we’ve got some fun excursions that we’re looking forward to! Apart from the usual Gangnam Tour on Mondays, Student Services on Tuesdays, Meet Up & Movie Night on Wednesdays and various workshops on Thursdays, we’ve got lots of fun Friday activities and excursions lined up for you.
First up is a visit to the Deoksugung Palace this coming Friday! Famous for its elegant stone-wall road, the Deoksugung Palace is beautiful, picturesque and unique with its western style garden and fountain.
The following week we’ve got the Cookin’ Nanta show which is essentially a non-verbal comedy musical show that incorporates Korean traditional samul nori rhythm. The show involves acrobatics, magic tricks, comedy, pantomime and audience participation. Nanta is the longest-running show in Korean history, and it’s definitely not a show to be missed!
The third week we’ve got the Chuseok holidays – which means no school from Wednesday, 14th to 16th September. Long weekend, guys~!!
The week after that we’re off to the Olympic Park. I’m sure you’ve all probably heard that South Korea hosted the Olympics in 1988. Following the Olympics event, the stadium and spacious grassy field areas surrounding the sports arena have now become a place for Seoul citizens to relax and unwind. We will head to the park to browse around. It is quite a huge park so if the weather permits, you’ll have to chance to cycle around the park on a tandem bike or four wheeled bicycle whilst taking in the scenery.
And of course, not forgetting our legendary student night on the last Friday of the month!
We hope you’re all looking forward to the activities as much as we are! 🙂
