After spending a few days visiting South Korea, we have some advice to offer you.
If like us is the first time that you plan to visit South Korea, know that Spanish citizens do not need visas to enter the country. Not much information at the Spanish guides so one of the best advice we can give is to visit the web VisitKorea is in Spanish and there you can get all the necessary information about visits, tourist attractions and transport, can also get information on accommodation, especially in accommodation Korean classics, ie in traditional Korean houses. We could not stay in any of these because in the chosen destinations were all busy, so I can not give any assessment on them.
- One of the essential things that you can get all the information through this website is on KRLPass , very similar to Japanese JRPass is the pass to travel by train across the country, the famous and very good KTX trains, ie Korean high-speed rail, of which we can only rave about, are very punctual, very comfortable and reach everywhere. We use a lot, because in two hours you can cross the country. For example, you can mount the base in Seoul, take the KTX Seoul - Busan from 7.00 in the morning, at 09.15 you are at destination, spend all day and come back in at 20.00, at 22.30 more or unless you are in the hotel. So do not have to carry bags, and each day a different destination.
The KRL must be removed prior to the arrival in Korea, that is, from our country. On this site you can buy. One of advice that we give, that even if you set the date of entry, you set the day you are going to start using it. Anyway, the girl in the booth where we exchanged the pass gave us a choice the day began to count the KRLPass.
- In Seoul we stayed at the Haechi Hostel is a small hostel, great location, very clean, rooms inviting, with a touch of Korean classic accommodation, rather than beds with futon has a kind of a very comfortable mattress . It is located in a commercial area, where you can find a variety of restaurants of all kinds. It is 50 meters from the metro station line 2, 4 and 5, follow the signs for exits 6 or 7. The rooms are not very big, but all with bathroom inside and if you travel with a child has triple. Is a BBB (Well, Bonito, Barato).
- There are four ways to go from Icheon International Airport to Seoul, Express Train, Train Normal, Taxi and Bus The cheapest and fastest way is the normal train, takes 15 minutes longer than the express, but costs three times less and has other little thing, before reaching Seoul Central Station makes 5 stops to other subway lines, as well as the other city airport, which the Express does not, it goes straight to Icheon to Seoul Central Station . The bus dismiss it slow and costs the same as the normal train and discard for exorbitant taxi, although I think three people go out like 5 times more than the train.
On Tour... EASTERN & ORIENTAL EXPRESS The Most Exotic And Luxurious Train Journey In Asia
Koh Samui2010-02-10 15:06:25 by pendercanuck
I'm thinking of going back to Koh Samui this summer from about mid June to mid Sept. to take martial arts and get away from the hustle and bustle.
I second what eric said about Samui... I've traveled all over the world and in my opinion there's no better place to get away from it all and still enjoy all the mod-cons of a first world country.
My accomodations will be less than 300 pe...r which is likely going to be a big expense too! I also want to buy a few tailor made suits on my way back through BKK... you can get 3 Armani knock-offs in about 48hrs for less than a grand!
I'm going by myself, but if anyone wants to join me, I may be open to some company... Traveling solo is also a pretty good time since it's really easy to meet fellow travelers in Asia.
