One of the fun parts of travelling is shopping for souvenirs. Instead of the plain old keychains and fridge magnets that you have collected too much, here are some fun alternatives for when you travel to South Korea someday. Plan your trip with Sri Sutra Travel, a leading travel agency in Malaysia.
- Facial sheet masks
What makes facial sheet masks a great souvenir is not just the cheap price, but they’re sold in bucks and can be found also everywhere. If you’re in a luck and there’s a sale going during your travel, you can get the masks at an even cheaper price. These sheet masks come in a range of flavours, including lemon, rice and even snails, and every different kind does wonders to the skin.
- Character socks
No trips to South Korea are complete without getting yourself (or your friends) a pair of socks or two. Like facial sheet masks, socks are very cheap and are sold everywhere, even at the train stations. Besides, these cute socks don’t even take up much space. Don’t worry if you’re not into character designs, because there are also other plain, pattern-less alternatives available. Travel to Seoul from Malaysia with us!
- Korean cutlery sets
Another affordable option, Korea’s unique metal cutlery sets have become something sought after by tourists. With a long history behind why metal is used instead of wood, Koreans take pride in their cutlery sets since they’re also resilient. Find them sold at the markets or souvenir stores in a nice packaging so you can gift them as a souvenir. Get in touch with Sri Sutra Travel, a leading travel agency in Malaysia.
- Seaweed crisps
Seaweed crisps, or ‘gim’, makes a great snack since it’s made of natural ingredients without artificial colouring and preservatives. These crisps can be eaten as they are or with rice to add flavours. Seaweed crisps are perfect to bring home as souvenirs since they’re light, affordable and don’t cost a lot. Besides, some Korean brands have started to produce halal seaweeds to cater to Muslim travellers including the ones from Malaysia.
- Official K-pop merchandise
If you’re a big fan of K-pop, then there’s no place more perfect to shop for your favourite idol group’s albums and merchandise than in K-pop’s birthplace.
