Autumn in South Korea – First Night

About a year ago, we booked our round trip tickets to South Korea when Cebu Pacific had a Seat Sale.  We spent Php 7,022 each.  The regular round trip airfare costs around Php 19,000.  It was a good deal.

???????????????????????????????

The Flight Attendant provided us these cards to fill out.  I forgot to bring my pen…again!

???????????????????????????????It didn’t taste and look like Chicken Adobo at all!

We arrived at Incheon International Airport at 9:15 P.M.

We were using the airport’s free wi-fi while waiting for our luggage.  Our friend took someone else’s bag by mistake and it was only when we arrived at the guesthouse when he found out.  Their bags were identical.  It was a hassle because he had to go back to the airport and paid for the damages.  Make sure you add a “bling-bling” on your luggage like a name tag or a small stuffed toy.  😀

Incheon International Airport to Seoul Station is a 1-hr ride.

We walked with our heavy luggage from Seoul Station to 24 Guesthouse.  This guesthouse was near Seoul Station but we had a hard time looking for it.  We got lost during our first night.  We arrived at the guesthouse at almost 11 PM and the temperature was 10°C.

Jason (top picture: wearing “Cebu” shirt), the one in charge, was very friendly and accommodating.  He speaks good English too!  We already booked the rooms online days before our flight.  The rooms were small but it was cozy enough.  We only stayed there for one night and took the train to Busan the next day.

Check this website for their rooms and rates.

P.S.  The photos were taken using a camera phone and digital camera.  Credits to Lhynx Lim for some of the photos that were used for this blog. 🙂
