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.

Touchdown: Korea 2016

Touchdown Korea - Richel Goes Places

I wish I’m the kind of blogger that writes about her trips days – even weeks – after it happened, but I’m not. Here I am, more than a year after my Korea trip, and I’m just starting my backlogs. But, fret not, as I amazingly still remember everything that happened on my Korea trip last autumn.

How to Apply for a Korea Tourist VISA for Filipino Employees

How To Apply for a Korea Touritst Visa Filipino Employees; Richel Goes Places

LAST UPDATED: FEBRUARY 14, 2017

Oh, VISAs. The bane of travelers hailing from third world country. Wouldn’t it be better if we just have to show proof of financial standings and a return ticket to visit any country we want? Alas, that is not the case. Applying for a VISA is a tricky business. There’s never a guarantee you’ll have one; people who have hundreds of thousands in the bank and return tickets still get denied. Which is why I was a wreck when it was my turn to apply for a Korean VISA; the first VISA application I’ve ever done.

Fortunately, my VISA was approved. Yey! And so were my companions. I’ve heard Korean VISAs are one of the easiest to get, but I also know of people who got denied one. I figured I’ll start my Korean travel series with a guide on how to get a South Korea Tourist VISA for Filipino employees.

Korea Photobook + Top 5 Memories

It’s been three months since I visited Korea but I still laugh at the memories we have created at that country. It’s already unforgettable since this is where I traveled solo for the first time – even if it was only for a short 1.5 days, but even more so when my friend and her family arrived. You’d probably seen her around in my blog since I travelled to Hong Kong and other local places with her.
