Chocolate,  Seoul

Jeju Island Chocolates

My friend Hyunchung and her sister Su, both from Seoul, are here in Manila for a short vacation. What’s cool is that prior to their visit, I have been in constant communication with Hyunchung because I am going to Seoul in March this year and I will stay at their guesthouse. I haven’t been there but based on the comments of people, I’m convinced that their guesthouse is the best choice for me. It’s a pretty house located in the heart of Seoul and is just about a 5-10min walking distance to most of the historical places any tourist would wanna visit. If ever you are going to Seoul and you’re looking for a great place to stay in with warm, hospitable and friendly hosts who can speak English and are super nice enough to tell you where to go and how to enjoy Seoul like a local, may I suggest that you please stay in 126 Mansion. Go to their website and find out why, even if I haven’t been there, I am already raving about it 🙂

Hyunchung and Su are so sweet and thoughtful that they even brought me a present when we first met last Monday. They gave me a box full of tangerine-filled chocolates from Jeju Island. I’ll be posting some more pics of Hyunchung and Su and our dinner last night but for now, let me leave you with the photos of the chocolates they gave me.

감사합니다 Kamsahamnida, Hyunchung and Su! See you in March!

    Hi! I came across your blog while researching more about korea. Me and two of my friends we’re in Seoul 2nd week of october, and I’d say that koreans are very warm, friendly,hospitable and helpful. Though most of the people doesn’t speak english they are still glad to help in every way that they can. It amazes me when the oldies in subway trains would sometimes talk to us and would ask us where we’re from.
    We stayed at a guesthouse in chungmuro,walking distance from myeongdong. T’was a great experience, we’d love to go back to korea soon!
