Highs & Lows
Going up the Lotte tower
Apparently blankets are not standard in some South Korean hotels
Q & A
What would you have changed?
I would have stayed a couple more days in Busan to see the Haedong Yonggung Temple
Anything go wrong during the trip?
I couldn't go to the DMZ because of a national holiday
How was the food?
Different kinds of Korean bbq's. If you don't tolerate spicy foods make it very clear to the waiters.
What tips would you give a friend?
Some foreign phone companies don't work, buying a local chip will save the day
Seoul can get a lot colder than Busan so bring a jacket
If you are not in super tied budget taking taxis everywhere is not so bad, although in Seoul there are two kinds of taxis: the regular ones and the "luxury" ones which are black, so it is better to take the colorful ones
In the hotel in Busan there was only a plain mattress and a cover, no blankets, I tried my best to explain that I needed a blanket. This is so weird when the hotel was rather nice
hoteles.com was the cheapest option
