    one of the best hotel in itewan

    by

    i reach the hotel at 2355 hrs reception staff welcomed and after the necessary documentation i reached on my room i think it is the 5th floor of the hotel all the facilities are good but i don't like one thing that is that there is no arrangement for food at that time so i go out side the hotel and find one super store type shop one besides the hotel and we take some food staff and come back to hotel. when i searching on internet about hotels i see the said hotel shoes that the hotel have it club, Jim, Swimming pool but i did not find these facilities in the hotel.

    Unique Quality: there was no unique qualities in this hotel.

    Directions: on main road of Itaewan Disstt Seoul

Hip new Hotel in Iteawon

by jake5148 about IP Boutique Hotel

This is a very nice and comfortable hotel right in Iteawon. You are within walking distance to all the great restaurants and bars that Iteawon has to offer. The hotel staff is Great, very helpful and professional. The Room is real nice and spacious, I would say this is close to a 4 star hotel. The bed is comfortable and all of it is brand new (They opened in 2010). The only drawback is that I feel it is a bit overpriced... but what decent hotel in Seoul isn't, I paid about $115 USD per night there or about 150,000 Korean Won when it should have been like $95. The breakfast if nothing special and very expensive, your better off eating at one of the many restaurants within a block. Hip style great location

If the company pays, the Westin Chosun is my favorite, but the Grand Hyatt and Inter-continental is great also and located near Coex hall. If I had to pay I stay in The Savoy located in a popular shopping area near the Universities. all of them are in popular area and the taxi service in Korea is first rate and honest. Korea has a international fares in the hotels, and there are many restaurants in the shopping areas to chose from. june is among the best time weather wise, warm temps and mild. about 72f Enjoy Korea and be sure to exchange business cards.

Travel Tips for Seoul

Seoul Palaces

by MEdelmann

We are not ready with the palaces, just in the neighbourhood of Changdeokgung Palace there is located Changgyeonggung Palace. Like the other, it offer beautiful architecture and a big green park, where the citizens of Seoul take a rest. You can watch them playing games (like I did, just watch my pictures in the travelogue) ....

Even...

by katie_park

(abstracts from )

Even non-verbal communication is widely different between East and West. Americans, for example, use a virtual carnival of facial expression and hand gestures that Koreans often find amusing. The wink, that wonderfully simple and versatile method of communicating at least five different meanings, is not naturally part of Korean culture, and the sight of it usually tickles Koreans and produces broad smiles. The rapid raising and lowering of the eyebrows, to show interest, is another non-verbal cue that can induce laughter from a surprised Korean onlooker. Tongues in cheek, rolling of the eyes, and licking of the lips, among others, are all foreign to this country. Still others, such as nodding the head up and down for yes and sideways to mean no, pushing out the bottom lip to show disappointment, pursing the lips to display anger, and an inquiring raise of the eyebrows are similar to both cultures. Hand gestures may also provide some examples of cultural contrasts. The Korean gesture for money is demonstrated by connecting the thumb and index finger, to form a circle, with the other three fingers pointed downward. Americans signal money by quickly rubbing the thumb across the tips of the four fingers, palm up. The shrug of the shoulders, with the head tilted to one side to communicate, 'I don't know,' has no equal in Korea. The index finger placed perpendicular to the lips, signifies 'Be Silent,' in both cultures but can also mean 'Keep a secret' to Americans. But the title of this section refers to a much deeper form of non-verbal communication involving recognizing and sharing emotions. Western culture knows it in the form of empathy that comes from long-term association with another, like a close relative or spouse. Most married couples have probably experienced a situation where one spouse knows what the other will say before it is spoken, or when one spouse can predict the other¡¯s reaction before a response actually occurs. With a little effort one spouse can probably feel as the other feels, in certain circumstances, even though the other never expresses that feeling verbally. That type of empathy, while reserved for more intimate relationships in the West, is much more common in casual interpersonal contact in Korea. The term describing the ability to discern and interpret these feelings non-verbally is 'nunchi.' This skill becomes a powerful tool in ensuring harmony in interpersonal relations by effectively reading another's feelings. Once this skill is developed, a large portion of routine communication can transpire without a word or so much as a raised eyebrow. People can learn to feel each other's mood routinely. Communication requires participants to focus on non-verbal behavior that provides clues to inner feelings. Foreigners must use care, when listening and observing, not to screen out behavior they should be examining and interpreting. Westerners who rely on detailed and repetitive verbal communication to feel comfortable understanding another's mood can be confused in Korea where much interpersonal communication is conducted non-verbally. Conversely, Koreans typically do not understand why Westerners insist on verbal communication in situations better conveyed non-verbally. For example, Koreans may wonder why Westerners must continuously say 'I love you' to make a partner sure of their intimate feelings. Many Koreans believe such emotion is more sincerely communicated non-verbally. Again, the example used in a previous section seems appropriate: if a spouse is moping around the house, Westerners would tend to question what is wrong and try to resolve it verbally. Koreans, on the other hand, might detect the bad feelings and try to cheer up the person with a gift of flowers or an act of kindness, without discussion. While understanding the unspoken is certainly a challenge, it's a skill that pays big dividends for foreigners who can develop and utilize it effectively while working in Korea.

HANGEUL

by ancient_traveler

Koreans have developed and use a unique alphabet called Hangeul. It is considered to be one of the most efficient alphabets in the world and has garnered unanimous praise from language experts for its scientific design and excellence.

4-19 Cemetary Near Jogye Sa Temple

by haveatisue

Near Jogye Sa Temple is the 4-19 cemetary, dedicated to the 142 Korean Students that were killed in a protest against the fraudulent 1960 presidential elections. The Protests and shootings brought the country to the brink of civil war. This caused President Syngman Rhee's government to collapse. The military General Park Chung Hee took over the government of the country and was a dictator until his assisinated in 1979.
There is a museum with pictures and 3-D di-aramas, fountains, a walking trail, small temple and some interesting art work. Unfortunately, all of the information is in Korean but the pictures do tell the story pretty well. The Cemetary is on the edge of Buk-han San park.
To get to the cemetary Take subway line 4 to Suyu station and follow the signs to the north of the station. The road the cemetary is on is called the 4-19 road, and it is well marked. If you write 4-19 any local can direct you the right way.
