My boyfriend and I are spending ten days in Mokpo at his brother's wedding. We have planned a trip to Jeju island, but will be spending 2-3 days in Mokpo - perhaps a day or two in Seoul as well before we fly out. Many threads on the green have great advice on what to wear/see/do in Seoul/ Jeju, but I was wondering if anyone could give me some direction as to what to do in Mokpo. It's possible that the people we're staying with might show us around, but again, if there's something we should absolutely see/ do, it'd be great to know beforehand. I hope I'm assuming correctly that since it is a coastal city, the seafood will be great - any specific restaurants I should visit? Dishes to try (I don't eat pork)? Additionally, I'd like some advice on what to wear to a small wedding - I asked the bride but her answer of 'anything you like' is a little vague, and I'd like to avoid any embarrassment. I'm Southeast Asian, fwiw, and wouldn't mind wearing traditional Korean dress, but don't know if that's appropriate.
I'd love some specific ideas on fun/ interesting things to do in Mokpo, given that my time is limited and the idea of meandering around aimlessly is thus not too appealing. Also, I'm on a student budget, and don't plan on spending too much money. General tips on visiting South Korea - attire, what I should spend money on, what to eat... is appreciated. Thanks much, Mefites :)
