Where We Stayed in Korea: 24 Guesthouse Seoul Station

24 Guesthouse Seoul Station; Richel Goes Places (1)

I was supposed to Airbnb my way through South Korea, but it’s cheaper to stay in a hostel when there’s just a few of you in a group. There were supposed to be three of us on our first day but one cancelled and then there’s just two left. I was also kind of panicky on where we’ll be staying as it’s just a few weeks until the trip at this point. I scoured through Agoda looking through the affordable hostel options that meet all my requirements, and I ended up with 24 Guest House Seoul Station.

Korea Day 3: Bukchon Hanok Village + Changdeokgung Palace + Gyeongbokgung Palace + Everland

Korea Day 3 Bukchon Hanok Village + Changdeokgung Palace + Gyeongbokgung Palace + Everland; Richel Goes Places

Our third day in Seoul is the busiest yet, which is saying a lot. We were ambitious, you see, and trying to fit all the “must-visit” in our short visit. For this day, we were planning to visit Bukchon Hanok Village, Gyeongbokgung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace, and Everland. Four big places in a day? We were just asking for our very tired feet and numerous (mis)adventures in a single day.

Korea Day 2: COEX Mall, Gyeongbokgung Palace, Gwangjang Market, Hongdae

COEX + Gyeongbokgung Palace + Gwangjang Market + Hongdae

Well, it certainly took me forever to update this blog series. The number of backlogs I have is too damn high. I just got back from my Japan trip last, last week (!!!) so the travel high is still with me. There’s also a 70% chance that I’m going back to Korea this year SO!!! I’m having a good year, so far! Anyway…

For my second day in Korea, I was going to meet up with Yuna and her family later that afternoon which means I have more than half of the day to myself. I didn’t have much to do in my agenda. I was only planning to visit COEX mall and that opens around 10AM.
