Where To Stay in Seoul: Review of K-Guesthouse Premium Dongdaemun

If you are wondering where to stay in Seoul, most of you maybe thinking of staying in the center of the shopping area which is Myeongdong. But for this Korea trip, our trip organizer @tripirit has arranged a hotel located in Dongdaemun area.

Why Dongdaemun? Because the shops at the area closed around 3 pm, some of them opens 24 hours.  Who would go shopping at midnight? Well, beside our group of course, there were lots of people doing some midnight shopping. Lots of them! Although it was 1 am, the shopping malls were still busy.

Our hotel is called K-Guesthouse Premium, located 10 minutes away from the shopping area. It is a small hotel but cater our need: clean room and bathroom, free breakfast, kitchen with microwave, aircon in the room is working properly and could set as a warmer, and there's iron at the lobby area. So I could iron my scarf every single morning :D

The entrance to the hotel, a mini market is just next to the entrance

Korea Trip with @tripirit Day 2: Visiting Namsangol Hanok Village And Shopping at Myeong Dong

This post is still on the same day: Day 2 of our Korea trip, after a half day well spent at the gorgeous Nami island. After our heavy lunch, we took a nap in the bus and woke up when we were already in Seoul.

The area and its scenery is really impressive that I understand why it was called "the land of fairies".

This beautiful place is surrounded by skyscrapers of Seoul
