    Where to Stay in Seoul: SAMCHEONG-DONG / BUKCHON

    This is the second location for my Where to Stay in Seoul series. The first location I wrote about was Myeongdong and you can read it here. As most of you know, Myeongdong is the ideal place for tourists specially those who are into shopping and street food. And even if that’s not your thing, it is still a good location to be at because if you have nothing to do in the evening, you can just cross over to the shopping streets and find yourself entertained by how busy that area is. Now moving on to this post, you may ask “Where is Samcheong-dong?” or “What’s there to see…

    SEOULFUL ENCOUNTERS [BUSAN/SEOUL 2017] EXPLORING SEOCHON AND LUNCH AT TONGIN MARKET’S DOSIRAK CAFE

    In my previous visits to Seoul, I have always stayed in the Jongno area, specifically in the heart of Samcheong-dong, and because it’s the neighborhood that I am most familiar with, I have declared so many times in the past that my favorite neighborhood in all of Seoul is Samcheong-dong.

    [Seoul Series] Day 1: Arriving in Seoul and Exploring Samcheongdong and Bukchon

    My initial plan was that our Seoul trip was just going to be for hubby and myself. I was then armed with information on how to take the public transport from Incheon International Airport to Seoul. Incheon Airport is big, clean, and nice, and along with the one in Hong Kong, and Changi in Singapore, they’re probably the best airports I’ve seen in all our trips to some parts of Asia and the United States. I would have loved to loiter around if only we didn’t have just 5 days to spend in Seoul.
