  • Not so much on a larger scale, we always crowded by a lot of people. Gift shops, restaurants are gourmet takeout. Toilet there, several (clean now), it is useful. And corners like a craft shop in the basement, such as with the picture of the pottery and the Pack of fun,. It seemed like a lot of people who are participating in the couple. Currency exchange rate is not so good, but.

  • When it comes to South Korea do not necessarily want to hear alley right Insa-dong. Korean atmosphere and offers great clothing and street food, etc. Ssamzie road works submitted by your design, such as being able to buy a variety of props, such as good. Insadong is visited Korea every once in a while, just like all the people to the place where one can visit.

Where to stay in Seoul

The Seoul metropolitan area has two districts especially appealing to backpackers--Jongno just northeast of the city, and Hongdae to the west. Both offer good shopping and dining, as well as easy transport links to the rest of the city. Mid-range options may prove difficult to find in peak season (July to August), unless you don't mind staying at a traditional hanok guesthouse, where loads of character make up for any lack of amenities. Finally, a range of top-end hotels with an impressive list of services and facilities lie scattered around the city.
