( Korea - Part 7 ) The sight seeing places in Seoul~ walked at least 7 hours non stop !!!



Do you realize those Korean girls always look like Snow white ?!?!
Their skin are FAIR!!!
I always believe that , if you have fair skin you gained 70% of overall beauty ~!
And .. my face was Fair inside those photo taken during this Korea trip!
( even my skin condition was not good that time, weather too cold and too dry )

But ... cold weather really made skin fairer ?!?
( busy to do research now... ) lol

After the Busan trip, Moved back to Seoul ..
and i stayed at the Love Hotel ~ ahahahah




This is the hotel lobby, 
with the complimentary coffee drink, sweets and ... Ice cream ^^





The colorful Hotel room ^^
With nice Painting and 2 computers!!!! yuhuu~
The hotel is clean but small ...
( btw, very good location nearby insadong and myeong dong )




a small bathroom .. but clean ^^
actually there is a bathtub beside the main door... LOL ,
feel shy ~~




The first meal that day was the COLD noodle ~!
imagine, cold weather with cold noodle ~ lolx!
Quite good matching ....







The bowl was Cold !!





Then , went to Dong dae mun!!!
Finally , the shopping heaven ~! But i didn't really shop  T_T
as i keep thinking about my 2 wardrobes ...

Doota !  is the Main shopping building in Dong dae mun,
as this is the main building,
a lot of tourists here and the price is slightly higher compare to other buildings..
and .. i didn't buy anything in Doota ~ lolx



The fruit's stall outside Doota ,
and it was cheap ~~ Look at the Strawberry ~
Just $3- $5 ??!



Inside Doota ...
a lot of different style fashions selling here..
price is slightly expensive..
Not recommend to buy here..
you can easily found another 2 or 3 buildings beside Doota, and their price is reasonable
and quality is good~






Decided to stop shopping ..
( bought a lot during Japan trip .. )
and i took the train to  In-sa-dong ~

by the anyway, does the taste of korean food in korea is different from the korean food you taste in singapore?

im Charlene said...

Definitely different ..
Let's talk about the Super normal ---> kimchi soup ..
no matter which restaurant u have this is korea, it is nice, tasty but not salty ..
in Singapore, either no taste, or too salty ~
T_T

and i hardly found the best one is MBS finally~ ahahahaha

Hello!

where is the exact place/address that u went to this duty free shop at lotte building? lotte building is not the lotte world right?

and also u mentioned the items can only be collected at the airport. so how to collect at the airport?

Thanks!
J.

im Charlene said...

Hi Penelope,

The lotte building i went is in Myeong Dong Area. After the purchase the staff will help you pack it and send to the airport, they will give you a direction card while you paying money and guide you how to go to the counter and collect in the airport, It's very easy .
