It doesn’t seem that long ago I was in Vancouver B.C. When my friend, W invited me for a quick getaway, I jumped at the chance.
On our last full day in Seoul, I was determined to try the Dosirak Cafe. So I made the trek back to Tongin Market and this time, the cafe was open. I paid the staff ₩5,000 (about $4.55USD) in exchange for 10 coins and a lunch tray. It was quite fun walking around the market and keeping an eye out for the cafe sign at each stall.
On my third day in Seoul, I only had one destination in mind. The Dosirak Cafe in the Tongin Market, unfortunately for me, the cafe was closed.
I originally wasn’t going to do any hotel reviews on this trip, hence no hotel room pictures. But I really wanted to share my experience.
After getting a good night sleep, we headed out to the photo studio to take pictures in hanboks. The studio was a little difficult to find, but a really nice halmoni (grandma type) literally took us under her wings and led us to the studio. She was by far the nicest person we have met in S.Korea. We headed upstairs just in time for our appointment. After a whirlwind 2 hours or so, we left the studio for lunch. At this point, I was borderline starving. We initially wanted to eat the ginseng chicken but had a difficult finding a restaurant so we settled for this random restaurant near the studio.
Hi everyone, sorry for the delay. I had lots to do. 😛
Ummm… Where are you staying?
Everyone (or at least I hope everyone) knows that once a vacation/trip is booked, the next big decision will be the lodging. Where are you going to stay? How far is it from all the attractions? Is there a special promotion going on? How long to stay for? How much will this cost me? and most importantly…Will the staff speak English?!
