RECOMMENDATIONS

THE PERFECT DAY

MORNING

Start a day with watching a beautiful sunrise from the Han River in your room. There is a temple in front of our hotel named the Bong Eun Sa which is a secondary one in its size and age in Seoul. Walk inside of this temple and feel the chaste and pure atmosphere of its unique oriental emotion. After taking a walk, stop by one of the famous fancy Korean soup restaurant, BonJuk. They have various kind of Korean traditional soup made by fresh seafoods and vegetables as well. We strongly recommend you to try some 'ear shell soup'. It tastes great and is also good for your health. It offers special opportunity to have unforgetable memories to you in Seoul.

AFTERNOON

Visit Insa-dong area. Insa-dong is the street which is lined with hundreds of art galleries & antique shops. They sell all sorts of Korean antiques and traditional souvenirs, and the area looks like a big art museum. You can rest at a traditional Korean tea house, named Yetchatchip. And then have a lunch at traditional Korean restaurant at the restauraunt, Sancheon, which is famous for its food quality and price. We are sure that you will have a memorable moment in Insadong.

EVENING

To finish the wonderful & beautiful day in Seoul, we recommend you to visit the Seoul N Tower, a landmark of the metropolitan city of Seoul. It offers a great view, fun, and excitement. Many citizens and foreign tourists have visited the Tower and were taken by the scenic view of the city while also enjoying the nature of Namsan mountain. Seoul Tower is located on the peak of Namsan in Seoul, a city of 10 million people around downtown. You will have an unforgettable experience at N Seoul Tower, the best place to view the city, with its convenient facilities and fantastic surroundings.
