Trip Report A Trip Report of Seoul (21 - 24 March 2013, Late Winter)

Jump to last reply

Hi Everyone,

This is a recap of my travel experiences in Seoul back in March 2013.

I had the good fortune to have a friend bring me around Insadong, Myeongdong, Sinchon and Hongdae where we had a lot of eating and did a fair bit of shopping! No tips for accommodation as I was staying at her place, but I think I managed to cover a lot of interesting places and events with as much detail as I can remember now.

1. This is the first (and hopefully not the last!) time that I kept track of the prices of everything I purchased in Seoul. Which included quite a fair bit of skincare of Myeongdong ;)

2. Food, food, Korean food - which was a surprisingly delicious experience for me

3. Korean street snacks are in abundance and awesome! ^ ^

4. Hongdae Free Market, where the only thing 'free' is the music but that shouldn't stop you from going :D

5. My first cat cafe visit! I want to go again!

I hope this helps new visitors planning their trip to Seoul. Wishing everyone a fun trip and happy times! ^o^

Cheers,
Angela
