Where do I start? The booking of the plane tickets and hotel was settled months before and I only needed to work out where and what we were to do for our 8 days in Seoul. It was our first time there and Grandmummy would be with us so I thought we should keep things simple and venture to areas mainly with the city area.
With Grandmummy at the airport an hour before boarding.
7 hours later, we arrived. :)
We put up at Hotel Prince and the room, which was originally mean for 3, was spacious enough to have another single-sized bed set up. Not too bad, really.
So let the holidays begin!
Activity 1: Street food!
Myeongdong - read: street food and cosmetics. After we had checked in, we made our way down the famous street food alley. These carts would line themselves up in the middle of the road between cosmetics and clothes shops and there till about 10 pm, you would be able to get anything from freshly squeezed juices to exotic seafood like oysters, from crispy egg on bread to steaming hot noodles. You name it!
The entire place was bursting with activities and it was not unusual to see people standing near by, or walking and munching on their snacks. The best part of this food alley - these hawkers are there every night and as it was a stone's throw away from our hotel, it was pretty easy, well convenient to get snacks.
