Day 1 - Hello Seoul!

Posted by Joshua |

Trip to Korea was a compensate Honeymoon. Some of you may not know that, I've gotten married last year in memorable month of May.

Due to the reason of myself undergone surgery our honeymoon was postponed.

Why Korea? My wife is a super crazy big fans of "Super Junior" and she love Korea korean guys & shopping.

We actually signed up with travel agency as we would have language barrier and it was during winter.

Me and my wife took Korea Airline and it was a mid night flight.

Manage to watch 2 movies in this 6 hours flight.


Long time didn't have airplane meal.


Once we touched down Incheon airport we all get dressed up in winter clothes.

First destination was Cheongwhadae Sarrangchae where we visit the history center and gain insight into the history of Seoul


Took few photos outside of the history center


and it was snowing right after few minutes of walks. We was so jakun and jumping around take photos and video.

Let me introduce our tour guide in Korea. His a Korean that can speak fluent Mandarin and as well Cantonese. He is very funny and entertaining person where brought us a lot of laughter and fun. He called himself "Tah Shung" which mean Big Bear or Nobita in Doreamon cartoon.

The first joke I remember was when he introduce himself as Tah Shung and don't ask me where is Doreamon. lol!

He tour us around Gwangwhamun Plaza which has 600-year old historic city of Seoul and transformed into a human centered space that harmonizes with beautiful Gyeongbokgung Palaca and Bukaksan Mountain.


The scenery was breathtaking with beautiful lake surrounded with historic building.


The culture of Korea is very similar to China.




The temperature was around -1 degree and having a great cup of hot coffee would be awesome, so we dropped by to a local coffee shop for a coffee before head for second destination.
