This is not part of my Seoul Travel Tips series, but I wanted to write it anyway. 🙂
When I went to Seoul solo last year, I made sure I have at least one new tourist place I visit that’s convenient and memorable.
Here’s another entry for my South Korea tips for the beginner mid-budget traveler! Hopefully, this can help you in that first ever adventure to Seoul!
Since I began traveling mid-budget, I rarely stay at hotels. I’ve never stayed in a hotel in Seoul. But I loved staying at guesthouses.
Guesthouses, generally, gives you a feeling of community, like a home away from home – but not quite (depending on your perspective of home, I dare say). To begin with, I’ve stayed at three different guesthouses whenever I’m in town. This is because I still want to explore staying at different parts of town and find out which is the best neighborhood for me.
For this post, I’ll discuss each guesthouse based on the following criteria: proximity to nearest subway station, proximity to Airport Limousine Bus stop, breakfast, reception, toilet/bath, space, price, facility, night life, and shopping. These are the ten points I look at when choosing a hostel or guesthouse in general. This can be your starting point in choosing your guesthouse in Seoul. Or even in other cities.
To make comparing objective, I’ll give one (1) point if it’s positive, and zero (0) if it’s negative, and point five (0.5) if there’s both positive and negative, based on my experience. I will also give explanation as necessary.
So let’s get right down to each of them.

It was a good thing we arrived early morning at Incheon Airport. Despite the lack of sleep from a midnight flight, I was very much excited of the sub-zero temperature, and Carla was excited for her first trip overseas. So we deposited our luggage at the airport and left for the business district.
Songdo is a district in Incheon developed to be similar to New York as an international business hub. It identifies itself as a smart city having computerized a number of controls such as heating system, lighting, and can even report crimes remotely. And as it wants to follow the footsteps of New York, there’s also a central park.
The two reasons why we want to go here was basically the Song Triplets and Descendants of the Sun. From the map of the area below, you can see that these two places are very near each other you can consider that this particular branch of Dal.Komm belongs to the Songdo Central Park neighborhood. LOL
I wrote about Ticketing here. Once you have the tickets, let’s now talk about what comes after!
If you have been reading around this blog, you’d know that the last time I visited Korea, it was for a concert.
I attended Day6’s Dream Concert in Seoul, for both days.
