When my friend and I started planning our Seoul trip, I asked if we could visit the palaces as I am into history and culture. Good thing she said yes and I already began listing all the palaces we were to visit. Seoul City alone have […]

Petite France: Reunited with Little Prince

Petite France: Reunited with Little Prince

Lovers of Antoine de Saint Exupery’s famous novel, Le Petit Prince (The Little Prince), should definitely include Petite France in their must-visit list when visiting Korea. I have read this novel way back in high school. And though it was labelled as a children’s book, […]

Agos Boracay: Rooms + Beds – A Better Second Time

My second visit at Agos Broacay Rooms + Beds had been over all pleasant just like in 2015. I can also say there have been more positive improvements from my last visit. The rooms are still quiet and spacious as I remember. The garden’s more tamed now too. 🙂 Locating this […]

Why Stay at Citadines Haeundae Busan

I originally planned to stay only in Seoul but I realized we have enough time to go down south to South Korea’s second most populous city. My friend and I wanted to see Busan’s famed beaches so booking in the Haeundae area came naturally. Spending […]
