Seoul Trip 2019 : Awesome Summer in Seoul
Annyeonghaseyo. We visited The Land of Kimchi not too long ago during Aiden’s summer break. It was my virgin trip to Seoul and I’m looking forward to visit Busan & Jeju next. I had a wonderful time trying various delicious Korean food, experience Korean and pop culture, visit beautiful sightseeing places in Seoul and not forgetting shopping for Korean snacks and beauty products. However, I personally feel that it’s not suitable to visit Seoul in summer. The weather was so terribly hot and humid. It’s better to visit Seoul in spring or autumn. Here are the amazing highlights of my Seoul Trip : Internet access is very important, especially when I travel overseas so that I can go online to check emails, upload photos on my social media, search for locations and also to keep connected with my loved ones. For my trip to Korea, I got the 4G WiFi from Klook that comes with unlimited internet access anytime and can be connected to a maximum of 5 devices. I can conveniently pick up the portable WiFi device from KLIA before my departure and just drop it off at the same place upon arrival in KLIA.

This smart robot guide can escort travelers to immigration and baggage claim areas. I usually book my airport transfers in advance before my trip coz it’s more convenient for me as I’m traveling with two kids. For this Seoul Trip, I book my return airport transfers from Klook and the driver was already waiting for us at the arrival hall. We stayed at Hotel Thomas Myeongdong in Myeongdong which is only about 10mins walk to Myeongdong Shopping Street. What I like about this hotel is that it’s fairly new as it’s opened in 2018, the rooms are clean and comfortable and there are many eateries nearby. You can book Hotel Thomas Myeongdong at a cheaper rate here. Our first Korean meal in Seoul. It’s one of the restaurants nearby our hotel. We had samgyetang (ginseng chicken soup), bindae-tteok (mung bean pancake), Korean bbq and juk (porridge). Gogigui (Korean bbq) is one of the must eats in Seoul. Korean BBQ restaurants are everywhere in...
