Rizal’s Seoul Stay


If the success of recent healing Korean dramas such as Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha is an indication, there are days when we just want to be away from the stress of the city, so we can just be while surrounded by natural wonders.

Fortunately, if you live in Metro Manila, you don’t need to go far to experience a relaxing getaway. Rizal’s Seoul Stay is a glamping site Korean culture fans should check out – it’s located on the hilly side of the province where you can have glorious, peaceful views of nature. On top of that, there are many things on offer, including access to an open cinema for a chilly movie night.

Tucked amidst lush greenery, the glamping accommodations at Seoul Stay have three sizes – called “Lover,” “Friend, and “Family” – catering to various numbers of guests. The Lover tent (P8,000, ~USD157.70) is good for 2-4 persons, Friend (P10,000, ~USD196.67) can accommodate up to 6 visitors, and Family (P15,000, ~USD295.68) is the largest and is good for a maximum of 10 visitors.

To fully enjoy a Korean-themed stay, the site’s Seoul Kitchen by Mr. Kimchiruela lets you order all things Korean, from kimchi (P75, ~USD1.48) to Samgyupsal (grilled pork belly) sets (from P899, ~USD17.72). And if you’re craving a glass of soju, order from Nora’s Cafe that serves various beverages, from espresso to refreshers to alcohol, that will complete your dining experience.

After a day of dipping in the pool and indulging in a Korean meal, you can also access an open cinema, so you can chill during the night watching a K-drama or movie.
