this time round, we (mum, sis & i) decided to choose korea over taiwan for our once a year ladies getaway! Its proved to be an awesome choice after all! NICE!
We must admit, we love every bits of korean cusine except the food for the brave which we skipped of course. The concept of serving ice bottled water before you even place your order is my favorite if only shops in Singapore does that too. Their wide variety of side dishes are our favorites... too much fav already. BBQ, fastfood, ginseng chicken soup....
Travelling in korea is a breeze as signboard are well put up everywhere, maps are given out by volunteers in red at most tourist attraction subway station or even on the streets (they move around) to assist and give direction. These volunteers can speak english, chinese & japanese so I'm always excited to see them at the entrance of the subway giving out a more detailed and updated map of the area I'm visiting. We only tried taxi, bus, subway, cable car and even KTX (speed train).
The highlight of the trip apart from food is definitely shopping! Things are affordable right in korea, now I'm feeling regret about holding back on some skincare (T_T). Korean gals seem to be blessed with both flawless and reasonably priced skincare that works.. I need more masks after trying some, oh no! Their stationery shop is a Must to visit if you like cute stationeries, tapes etc. My mum love their daiso and visit almost every single branch we pass by during the trip.
Just weeks after our trip, we decided to plan another trip to Korea next year again! I know its too soon to make such advance travel plan but we really LOVE the place!
I will do organising my pictures and do up more post on the trip so stay tuned!
