The Itinerary

Yes! I am very excited about the Korea trip.
Looking forward to feeling another city.
Initial plan was:

Day 1:
Garosu-gil / Sinsa-dong
Pyeongando Obuja – Pyeongan cuisine – Sinsa Station
Dosan Park – Apgujeong Station
Coreanna Art & Culture Complex – Apgujeong Station
Olympic Park – Olympic Park Station Line No. 5, P550

Day 2:
Insa-dong – Anguk Station, Line No.3, 328 (Cultural Shopping)
Samcheong-dong, Anguk Station, Line No.3, 328 (traditional house, quaint cafes)
Bongeunsa Temple No.3, 318 – Samseong Station
COEX Mall No.3, 318 – Samseong Station
Seoul Metropolitan Library – City Hall Station No. 1, 2
Ewha Woman’s Univ. & Sinchon – Line No.2 241 (University fashion)
Gureum Cafe (Night lights) – Dongjak Station Line No. 4, 9

Day 3:
Dongdaemun Market – Dongdaemun, Line No. 1,4 (Shopping Malls Street)
Namdaemun Market – Hoehyeon, Line No. 4, 425 (Traditional marketplace)
Myeong-dong, Line No. 4, 424 (Clothes & accessories, Cosmetic & Skincare Shopping)
Seoul Tower – Myeong-dong Station

Extra fillers.
Itaewon-gil – Line No.6, 630 – (Foreign shopping, leather, fur)
Hongik Univ (Hongdae) – Line No.2, 2A (Club Culture, Weekend flea market)
Munjeong-dong – Line No. 8, 818 (Outlet shopping)
Times Square – Yeongdeungpo Station, Line No. 1, 139 (Gigantic shopping mall)
IíPARKmall – Yongsan Station, Line No. 1J (Electronics paradise)
Sawore Boribap – Apgujeong Station
Gaeseong House – Apgujeong Station

Then upon spending time, realised that:
Samcheong-dong and
Samseong Station
are actually very different, very far away.

So it became:

Day 1:
Garosu-gil / Sinsa-dong
Dosan Park – Apgujeong Station
Coreanna Art & Culture Complex – Apgujeong Station
Olympic Park – Olympic Park Station Line No. 5, P550

Day 2:
Insa-dong – Anguk Station, Line No.3, 328 (Cultural Shopping)
Samcheong-dong, Anguk Station, Line No.3, 328 (traditional house, quaint cafes)
Seoul Metropolitan Library – City Hall Station No. 1, 2
Ewha Woman’s Univ. & Sinchon – Line No.2 241 (University fashion)
Gureum Cafe (Night lights) – Dongjak Station Line No. 4, 9

Day 3:
Myeong-dong, Line No. 4, 424 (Clothes & accessories, Cosmetic & Skincare Shopping)
Seoul Tower – Myeong-dong Station


While everything is relatively easy to find online, there are still somethings that do stumble me.

Like when I’m at the Gimpo International airport, where is the subway station for me to switch, to take to Incheon International airport?
I didnt know that the AREX Train connects the Subway train.

If I want to trek my way up from within Namsan Park to the N Tower, how do I get to the Namsan Park by foot?

Which is the faster way to the airport from my apartment? The landlord said and drew on a map, “after the second intersection, turn right” a… I dont recognise anything on the map………

So how? …

:/ Some answers are found, others? I guess to be found. 😀

after reading more, it became…
