tower-bridge

This time, I finally realized my dream of traveling to the United Kingdom. I’ve delayed this trip for a year, and finally here I am, writing about the requirements to get that one hurdle to setting foot in my travel destination topnotcher: the VISA.

For this trip, I will be traveling with my Mom, and we were invited and will be supported by my Aunt who is a British Citizen. You can get information online about the requirements when you do visit the country on your own. But since there’s only a few who write information about trips that are sponsored, here’s my contribution to that lot.

SOUTH KOREA 2016: Jihachul, Guide to using the trains in Seoul

As part of my South Korea 2016 travel tips, this time, let’s talk about the transportation in Korea, particularly in Seoul.

I have been to Seoul 3 times, and the trains and subways are my best friends. To be honest, I haven’t mastered the art of riding the trains, nor do I know the difference between subway and train (I know in Japan there’s a difference, like on land or underneath it, or that in London they’re called Tube or Train, not subway because that’s a restaurant HAHA). In Manila, we only have Rail that goes on and under land. Anyway, Seoul pretty much have the best transportation system among the countries I’ve been at. Not that there are many, but a lot of people who have been to Seoul would probably say the same. Every nook and cranny of the city is accessible by train, if not, then by bus.

Warning: Huge picture size ahead.

Where it all happened.. ^_^

We have prepared ourselves for a rather looooong walk for this day because we will be agency-hopping. We didn’t schedule anything else for the day. It was purely K-Pop day! I will apologize ahead of time as most of the pictures will contain my sister, as this was her day. If you know what I mean. Haha.

Edit! Cube Entertainment has moved to a different location. See bottom of this post.

I missed the fountain show when I first went to Korea in 2013. I can’t miss it this year.

So I asked my sister to search around the net and look for the easiest, most detailed way to get to Hanggang Park. Since the show was still on by the time we are there, we definitely cannot miss it for the world.

How to get to South Korean Embassy – Manila (Detailed)

The official address of the Korean Embassy in the Philippines is:

McKinley Town Center, 122 Upper McKinley Rd, Taguig, 1634 Metro Manila

So, there are tons of ways to get there, if you’re around Manila: the easiest one among them of course is to hail a cab.

However, for those who freak out during a solo cab ride (like me) there are other ways to get there via public transport. There are also a few instructional materials online that tell you how to get there. I did my research first of course, but I wasn’t able to come across a detailed one especially for those who are not familiar with the area.
