LEAHTRAVELS: EXPLORING SOUTH KOREA (SOLO TRAVELLER ITINERARY)

Last May 26 to 30, I travelled solo again to South Korea. 🙂

Korea was one of the places to visit on my travel bucket list because of three reasons: first, its beautiful sceneries that I adored just by watching KDrama and even on photos, second, cause of KBeauty (that I also hoarded during my visit) which is the main reason why my skin is at its best, and lastly, because it is the first and only country my mom has visited and I remember hearing great things about Korea when I was just in grade school because of her. She adores Korea that much.

I stayed at a simple hotel in Janghanpeong, which is a little farther from the main district in Seoul. I travelled almost 1 hour (30mins walking and 30mins train ride) for five days just to be at the main district or go to Myeongdong. My room had a view of the neighbourhood, with a bathtub and what I like the most about it was the friendly staff. The receptionist even told me a story when she visited the Philippines, and was amazed with the beauty of El Nido, Palawan. The hotel is also near the cafes, and the coffee lover in me was just so happy! I love visiting new cafes and trying out some of their best seller coffees and teas. Most of the coffees I tried in Korea are the best coffees I’ve ever tasted, like ever! Check out my vlogs below to see more! 🙂

I booked my flight via Air Asia, my hotel from Agoda and my tours via Klook, just like the usual. This was the second time I traveled abroad by myself, and this experience was truly fun and amazing!
