During our visit to Seoul, the preferred mode of transportation to travel around the city was the Seoul Subway, or also known as Seoul Metro Line.
Once in South Korea, we traveled from Incheon International Airport to Seoul Station (the first subway station we set foot on) via the Airport Railroad (AREX). For your information, Seoul Station is similar to KL Sentral in Malaysia – it serves subway trains and long-distance trains.
Mind you, hotels in Seoul can be rather expensive – if you’re traveling on a budget. So we opted to search for guest houses as they’re considerably cheaper.
After searching high and low for a guest house, we found one – Nansam Guest House.
Before settling for Namsan Guest House, there were a few choices to choose from, namely Seoul Backpackers, K-Pop Hostel and Kimchee Guest House – to name a few. In fact, there are many guest houses in Seoul.
To the world, Seoul is a city with bright lights, modern technology, and mountains of Kimchi. On the contrary, Seoul is also an amazing city of the past and the modern, and a welcoming destination for travellers - that’s where I was just recently!
Just so you know, I was seoul so excited about flying to Korea!
Weeks of anticipation finally ended and I found myself walking along the streets of downtown Seoul – the capital and largest metropolis of South Korea. Let’s recall the places I’ve been to during my stay.
