Another Trip to South Korea : Busan ~ Seoul: Day 2

Posted by Norazo at 12:03 PM

Ahaaa.... Only now i got the feeling to updates my trip Busan ~ Seoul ~ Busan. Ok here we go!!!!

The next morning on 11/11/13, we were supposed to leave for Seoul with early morning bus. However, none of us is a morning person so we got overslept until 9PM. Walaaaahhhh!! We left our Hostel at 10.00am then we took the train to Busan Station which we thought was a bus station. Hahaha!! Busan Stations actually the station for KTX Train (super fast train to Seoul) The information staff told us to go to Nopo Bus Terminal. So here we go again.. hop on the train from Busan Station to the final station in Line 1 (exactly 21 stations from Busan Station phewww).  Chulballll~~~~

In the train

 We arrive at Nopo Station at 10.50am and the next bus to Seoul was schedule to leave at 11.00am with fare of 34,000 Won (Excellent). Actually, there is another bus schedule to leave at 12.30pm and with more reasonable price of 23,000 Won (Normal). However, as we were late therefore we took the 11.00am bus. The journey from Busan to Seoul took 5 hours and we arrived at Seoul Bus Terminal at 4.10pm

Our ride to Seoul
Arriving weeeee~~~ "Nama saya Masnah!"

As we were arriving safely in Seoul, we continue our yet another journey in locating our hostel for 6 days 5  nights in Seoul. Our destination was TravellersA Seoul Guesthouse. From Seoul Express Bus Terminal, we took a connected metro subway from Terminal Express Bus Station : Line 3 (Orange) to Euljiro 3-sam Ga Station : Line 3 and transfer to Line 2 (Green) at Euljiro 4-sa ga (Exit 4). We then continue our journey in locating the hotel with average 10kg burden on our back! Daaaeeeebaaakkkk!! Backpackers la katakan hahahaha.. The temprature in Seoul was colder than Busan but nice hehe...

Once we arriving at the hostel, we were welcomed by Mr. Aron. A cute, skinny, tall, white Korean guy with a cute English accent! In short he's cute ;p. Luckily for us, our room located at the G floor so we dont have to take another stairs after so many stairs we climbed at the Subway station. We put our bag then we off to enjoy our very first day in Seoul! (for more info about the Hostel just click the link above)

Rossy interior!

Front door day 3
Mirror mirror on the wall, whose the fairest of them all??? saya! sayaaa!
We supposed to visit Namsan Tower that evening but since the sunset in Seoul was at 5.25pm, therefore we went straight  to Myeongdong street + Namdaemun! We took the train from Line 2 Euljiro 4-sa ga Station and transfer at Line 3 (Baby Blue) Dongdaemun Station to Myeongdong Station still in Line 3. I can't remember exactly the exit but no need to worry because the signboard are everywhere. Just be alert and dont hesitate to ask! During my last trip to Seoul in 2011, i have visited Myeongdong Street. The trip this time certainly brought back memories from before. The place hasn't change of course. Its crowded with people and noise because most of the stores are having their very own competition on their sales i guess. 

Among the Koreans huhuhu "the Aslan's in Seoul"


More shops

and moreeee

Aik, nama saya Masnah! Annyeong

After roaming Myeongdong Street eating 3,000 Won Kimbab, 5,000 won grill squids and 2000 Won twist potato with cheese, we walk to another famous attraction Namdaemun Market where Namdaemun gate located. We were lost of course but we finally managed. Masnah and my brother doing tshirt shopping in Namdaemun and i am appointing myself as their unqualified tour guide hhahah!
If you a fan of  Running Man, you might recognized this building *Ep16?
Done our shopping, we then decided to go back to our hostel. There is another story actually. We, again LOST. We cannot find the Subway station. ahhhhh sakit kakiiiiiiii!!! Then, from the very far away, our subway route expert Masnah finally found the subway sign Line 2 (our line). Our search is finally over... Therefore we are done with our Day 2...
Tired face.. my brother both went blur

We said prayer to our legs "Dear legs, sila bertabah"

Penat itu nyata,, tp senyum itu harusssssss

Bye bye.. Day 3 updates in 3 days maybe...;p
