Day1 10 Jan 2014

We took the scoot flight at 1.35pm, transit 1 hour in Taipei and we had our quick dinner in Taiwan. Since we forgot to bring Taiwan dollars, we just swipe credit card. We board back scoot and arrived at Incheon airport about 10.35pm local time.

We had previously arranged airport transfer to pick us from airport to our namsan guesthouse. It was cold at 2 degree Celsius. There was 8 of us traveling together and we paid 16,250 won per pax and payment made to the guesthouse upon our arrival and the driver will than collect from the guesthouse owner.

The rooms are pretty small, one double bed not much walking space and one small toilet and that’s all. You can place your luggage but there isn’t much space to open our luggage in the room so we have to open our luggage along the corridor outside our room when packing. They provide free bread and cup noodles at the common area.

The first thing after we check in, we walk down to the nearest 7-11 just few metre down from our guesthouse to buy the Data Sim card for 30,000 won that's about $35.50 SGD 1 GB for 30 days and 10,000 won credit for voice. You need to activate it, just follow the instruction and submit a photo of passport for verification.

  24. Hi michelle,

    Would love have a detailed itinerary of your korea trip as i am planning one this coming year. Tyvm 😊

  25. can you email your detailed itinerary and maps? Planning a trip this Dec for family. still thinking join Chan Bro tour or Free and Easy but really scare of language barrier. Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Michelle,

      I had email you, just some of the informatio i would like to share with you.
      Back in 2010 I did join chan bro tour and I don’t really get to enjoy the delicious food and shopping experience in Seoul. It was rather tiring bus ride from attraction to attraction and attended some classes.

      I will actually recommend you to go on free and easy. You may use my itinerary as a guide.
      Jeju u can get a one day tour. While in Seoul is pretty easy to travel around.
      Don’t worry much of language barrier, the sales assistant mostly speak Chinese as there were a high flux of tourist from China to Korea the past few years.

      As for food ordering, some menu do have English otherwise u can jus order by pointing.
      Not to worry, you can always use google translate.

      I don’t speak Korean during my trip, but I manage to bargain at the their fish market for good cheap seafood. U don’t get to experience such if you join tour.

      I think is more cost effective too to go on free and easy.
      I do have some guide to help saving cost for booking flight tickets and accomodation. Let me know if you are keen.

  26. Hi Shu Xian,

    nice reading your blog! Am thinking to venture into Korea for the winter this year, would much appreciate your itinerary as well. 🙂


  27. Hi!

    Nice to read through your blog. Do you mind email a copy of your itinerary? Thanks.

    Was thinking what’s there to do besides skiing in S.Korea during winter but after reading through your blog it seems like there is so much to experience and have fun.

    Planning to go S.Korea this Dec and will be our first time there. For my teenage kids, it will be their first experience of winter. A bit of a concern on the weather & how should we dress up for winter. Any advice?

    1. Hi Steven,

      Great you like my blog. I highly recommend to free and easy in korea. Despite on language barrier i think is more enjoying. My first trip to Korea was with tour, I didnt enjoy that much especially on food.

      Well, during winter time, my advice is that you got to keep yourself and your family warm. Recommend you to get heat tech clothing from uniqlo. Perhaps you can lookg out during nov, they will have sales time to time so keep a look out.

      I think Ear muffler, gloves and thick socks are essential for your kids not forgetting jackets and boots. If you have intention to head to Jeju, jeju is very windy. Do make sure your jacket are windproof. Good to have scarf so to keep your neck and chest warm thats very impt sometime it can be use to cover up nose and mouth.

      Do check out my itinerary there is actually more places you can visit. Such as the Gwangjang market. If you need more advise do let me know.

      May you enjoy the first korea trip with your family.

  28. Hi,

    could you share your itinerary and maps please? By the way do you buy winter clothing here or in Korea? Thanks and have a good week.

    1. Hi winnie,

      I had dropped you an email on the Korea maps and itinerary. May i know which month are you going?
      It can be very cold in Jan and Feb. Do keep yourself warm. I highly recommend you to get some winter clothes in Singapore.
      Head over to uniqlo, get some heat tech tee, and i like their pants either those cargo pants that windproof or those inner with furs are really useful in cold weather. Although myeongdong has one big uniqlo, i recommend you to get in singapore.
