Korea Spring – Seoul – Lotte World Tower

My Korean colleague suggested this place – it’s a new tower in Seoul and it has shopping mall inside. Very classy place, like Pavilion KL vibes. Unfortunately Lotte Mart & it’s shops were closed that day we went so we didn’t manage to try the food court. Other restaurants were packed. 👑 #crown #soshiny #gold!… Continue reading Korea Spring – Seoul – Lotte World Tower

Korea Spring – Seoul – Changdeokgung

This is the last palace we went to. We had missed this palace on Seoul City Bus Tour, so we went on another day.

Korea Spring – East Jeju Island Day 3 – Seopjikoji & Seongsan Illchubong

The night before, we couldn’t finish our chicken dinner. So for breakfast today, I shredded the chicken and friend cooked instant noodles. Tasty and this time we added kimchi, bought from CU or GS25 (very common convenience store in Korea). Today we opened the cold brew and 2 of us found it too bitter without… Continue reading Korea Spring – East Jeju Island Day 3 – Seopjikoji & Seongsan Illchubong
