Seoul (Jan 2013)

Over the short 1 week trip, I managed to visit several tourist spots in Seoul, especially over the weekend.

I went to the famed Dongdaemum wholesale markets which are open from late morning to around 5am. It was quite an eye-opener seeing so many malls and buyers with big baggages.

While looking around for the KT olleh shop to purchase a prepaid SIM card, I passed by Bosingak Belfry and took a couple of photos there.

I also managed to visit some of the popular spots like Changdeok-gung, Gyeongbok-gung and National Folk Museum.


I had the intention of visiting Bukchon Hanok Village, but found out it was under renovation.

I also went up Namsan via cable car to see the scenary, the N Seoul Tower and also visit the Teddy Bear Museum. Before going up, I also visited Namsangol Hanok Village aka Korea House, which was at the foot of Namsan.


After descending from Namsan, I went to Myeongdong, which is just nearby.

On the last day, I went to Lotte World and paid for a 1-day special pass. The pass includes all rides, but the queues at most of the interesting rides were crazily long with estimated queue times of 50 to 120 minutes.
