My first time ever in Seoul couldn't get any better than this!
we arrived at about 8.30 am in the morning in Incheon Int'l Airport, and of course we took our first picture at the airport. I checked the forecast and it said that it was about 11 degree celcius in Incheon.
there was a bit problem with my android phone, because it …
* Touristy highlights have included Namdaemun Markets, Namsan Tower and lookout point, Gyeongbokgung Palace and The National Folk Museum
* We had the opportunity to go night skiing at Yong Pyong Ski Resort and despite it being -11 degrees we had a fantastic time and could not believe how cheap it was in comparison to Australia (ski hire, clothes, lift passes all about $60)
* Die Hard 5 at a 4D cinema where ...
... for future reference.
Next day we walked to find the On Off city bus tour. Hardly felt like one of the world's big metropli. And T shirt weather for us - although the locals are more warmly dressed. Got off to see a special market but didn't really find it. Then off in a shopping quarter for lunch before visiting the "Sky Tower" of Seoul. On a hill so the vistas are amazing. Touristville here. A long day but not over yet.

... tops. Being surrounded by 20 cats was about 19 more cats than I would have liked. It didn't help that the place smelled heavily of cat urine, or that they seated us at table 2--right next to the pool of cat vomit at table 1.

The other touristy things I did on the weekend (after visiting the DMZ) included visiting the fish market. This is the second largest fish market in South Korea (the largest is in Busan, in the south part of the country).

well I gotta say for my first time ever in Seoul, this is a very nice place to stay. It is located in Myeoung Dong (Please pardon my typo error, I'm trying really hard to write an excellent korean names, places, and any kind of words), if you walk in like 10 -15 minutes (well actually it might only take like 7-10 minutes, but it took longer because of taking selfie pictures in every 15 foot walks :P) you'll reach the subway station, and then you'll be able to reach the famous myeong dong street, the cosmetics heaven :)
It wasn't a huge room, but it was quite spacious. the best part is there was a nespresso machine, so we could drink free nespresso.
oh the internet is free, and that was one of the best thing right?? :)
