    Healing In South Korea

    In a country where competition is stiff, and everyone works hard to make a living, tired Koreans look for something that will soothe their bodies and minds. In a recent survey, it was discovered that almost half of Korean employees have less than 5 days of vacation a year! This is why there is a current growing popularity of nap cafes in South Korea, part of the industry called “fast healing.” Employees always look for something that will solve or provide them that much needed shut-eye, and this clamor has brought forth several businesses like cafes with sleeping pods, healing fairs, cinemas where you can sleep, and public convenience lounges.…

    2018 Spring Specials Roundup

    It’s Spring Time in South Korea! I can still remember my trip last year which was a little late for the spring festivals, but still very much within the season for which I luckily had the chance to catch the spring flowers in full bloom, especially the tulips in Everland. Seoul is beautiful all year round, and that’s a given. But thanks to spring and its comfortingly cool weather, Seoul becomes a great place for couples, friends, and families, to experience the outdoors. It is also during spring when a wide array of festivals and events celebrating the season happen throughout the country. I have carefully picked the best of…

    Seoulful Encounters [Busan/Seoul 2017] – Arrival in Seoul and KTX to Busan

    In 2014, KORAIL began to offer KTX high-speed train connections from Incheon International Airport to Seoul, Daegu, Busan and other cities in Korea. However, the Incheon Airport KTX service has been suspended as of the end of March 2018. The main reason was that the demand was too low and ridership stayed far below necessary numbers.  This blog post was written when the KTX Incheon-Busan service was still available. Note that KTX Seoul-Busan is still open and very much available. I arrived in Seoul around 5 in the morning of April 17. It was still cold outside but the temperature inside Incheon International Airport was just right. I got a…
